ABOUT ME

Emilia Sędziak

My name is Emilia Sędziak, and I am a negotiator and business consultant.
I love working in the international market — comparing, checking, and learning from companies from other countries. My dream is for Polish companies to be 100% competitive. I know that with our hard work and quality, we can achieve a lot, but sometimes we lack negotiation, business, and language skills. My mission is to accompany and support the development of Polish businesses on this path. There is no greater success than signing contracts worth millions of euros and having satisfied customers.
 
I have always been a confident person and one who takes action. I managed a team in an international company, negotiated cooperation with partners from all over the world, and supervised entire projects. As it turned out, these innate predispositions support my actions because I am a Deal Maker, according to Talent Dynamics, a born negotiator. Moreover, from Gallup tests, my two primary talents are Achievement and Focus, which allow me to fully focus on each task to achieve success.

I could tell you that what matters to me is your company’s profit, that my services are the best, and that I have numerous certifications and successes. However, what is most important is people. Your business is for people, people lead your company, and people negotiate and converse. Therefore, it is crucial to learn the basics in a given field – negotiation or recruitment – and then not be afraid to talk, as it is the foundation of communication and successful cooperation.

I am happy to help you and your employees learn this or do it for you as a “Negotiator for Hire.”
