Personal Interests

Traveling across the globe, now that it seems to grow bigger in my eyes...

Reading makes my mind a healthy place. Others' imagination feeds mine 

Cooking Hungarian - food for thought wherever I am. Trying to keep my roots close by.

Diving and swimming are my favourite endorphin wells. 

Professional Goals

Experienced event producer and international project manager, fluent in 5 European languages, with extensive international working experience, I am in search of challenging opportunities which will allow me to grow and apply my competencies to good use.

"Ms Szabo displayed high aptitude in her work as well as a genuine interest and devotion to the work she was accountable for. She demonstrated high customer focus and always set herself high standards of quality in her work. As a project manager she spent a large part of her time researching market trends, deeply understanding key priorities across industries. She established positive rapport with leading practitioners and she displayed great competency in communicating at all levels of the organisations. Krisztina did not shy away from taking further initiative when it was needed. She was an asset to my department."

“I was delighted to work with Krisztina on an Internal Communications pan European conference recently. Krisztina was able to organise a conference with top-class speakers from world-leading companies in industry. The conference was very well organised and enabled the delegates to learn from other organisations and exchange best-practice. Krisztina is highly motivated and strives for making each conference a success for all delegates. I very much look forward to work together with her again in future.” April 11, 2011

Education

Skills

Cold calling
Being able to make a point and remain professional in a matter of seconds is a great means to draw attention and engage. 
Conducting meetings
An effective 1-hour meeting can be as productive as a month-worth of arranging appointments. Finding ways to improve meeting formats and engage participants to get the job DONE has become one of my priorities in work. On the other hand, social get-togethers and networking events are a regular activity for me.
Market/Industry Research
Being curious takes you to unknown places. Sticking to my habit of not leaving out any details, I love learning more and more about everything going on in this world. Internet, print media, archives, libraries and fiction all helped me discover INFORMATION and become wiser.
Copywriting
Ideas do marvels if they come across with the right words. Conference content production, workshop leading, speeches and motivation through powerful words have been part of both my personal and professional development. 
Public speaking and Presentations
Briefing, presenting and selling my ideas or work to everyone willing to listen...I love interacting with people, at any level. Engagement is vital.
Spanish
I won't stop till I'm a Rockstar! Fully able to work in a professional environment.
English and French
The languages I work in best.
