In 2012 together with a small group of Polish Professionals, we set up a Community Interest Company (C.I.C.)* to represent our interests – Polish Professionals Forum. The objective of PPF is to inspire and motivate its members to professional development, acquiring new skills and achieving personal goals. PPF is a platform for networking, mentoring and sharing experiences. Members of PPF are the ambitious, entrepreneurial Polish, who are or aspire to be professional, and want to promote positive image of the Polish community in Europe. Together, we organise different events focused on career development, such as meetings with recruitment agencies, motivational speakers, entrepreneurs and academics.
What is our ambition?
Polish Professionals working in Europe will have dynamic successful careers and will fulfil their potential.
PPF empowers its members to develop their talent and to have exciting careers through training, networking, mentoring and sharing experiences.
