During my 14-year career in B2B (both working as an inhouse and at agency side), I have collected impressive portfolio of local and international communication success stories worth sharing, which have very practical tips as take away.
About me14Y IN B2B BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT AND MARKETING
For the last 14 years I have designed my experience and built knowledge around B2B marketing, communications and business development and did it led by principle of aiming high.
MARKETING AGENCY OWNER
Having spent 7 years of my career in B2B marketing, communications and business development, I have realized there is lack of this specific competence available in the market, that is exactly why I’m one of the co-founders of the first full scope marketing agency specialized in B2B in Lithuania.
LEGAL SERVICE INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
Since my professional career began with small law firm (at that time) in the Baltics and I had an amazing opportunity to contribute to its growth to TOP 2 in the Baltic-Belarus region, legal service industry remains my true passion already 14 years. Up to date I have helped for more than 20 law firms facing various marketing, communication or sales strategy challenges to put the path to their success.
These achievements I celebrate with champagne. To make better choice for these occasions I have recently graduated Champagne Academy, therefore I do my best to have reason to keep it practicing :)
I value knowledge a lot, as well as sharing – that is why I have studied PhD in marketing and am lecturing for more than 10 years. Currently – at Vilnius University.
I also play the piano and lately are getting more interest in other arts.

Commissions require knowledge in communication with the clients as well as the legal part with taxes and writing sales agreements, the knowledge of author's rights and how not to sell out but build for the future.
I gave many speeches (KVN team, political rallies and conferences, theater) and more than a hundred interviews (newspapers, radio, TV). I have taken many courses, but I know perfectly what are stress, fears and panic attacks. Public speaking = 75% of psychology and 25% of practice.
