HELLO, I’M ANNA
I am passionate about helping you move your business online! My 14 years of experience in operations, human resources, project management and sales & marketing, plus my extensive educational background, have led me to make doing so my personal mission.
WHAT I’VE LEARNED
I prepared for my life’s work by obtaining a financial services degree from University College in Dublin, and also four years of education in psychology from the Warsaw School of Social Psychology in Poland. This education has positioned me very well to understand the interaction between service provider and consumer.
WHAT I’VE ACCOMPLISHED
My work experience has enhanced that promising beginning. After starting out in administrative roles in HR and banking, then quickly moving on to become a financial advisor for Expander, the first Polish financial advisor for individual clients. Between 2005 and 2012 I held a number of senior banking positions in Ireland. This gave me experience in managing teams as diverse as underwriting, new business, business expansion, and project management. In 2012, I took that experience and combined it with my interest in the growth of the online sector, dedicating myself to providing businesses with the support they need to take their operations to the cloud. Weeks later I landed my first contract supporting an e-learning company, overseeing all aspects of online marketing and operation strategies. When I began, the company had one website. Today, it has nine independent sites supporting more than 100,000 customers spread across 116 countries.
All of that education and experience has positioned me uniquely to be able to take you and your business to the next level. I founded Groowiz with my partner, Roberto, setting up a robust and skilled team of e-professionals so that you can relax, knowing that your path to online operations will be as smooth as possible, whether you need one virtual assistant, an entire team, or something in between.
MY OTHER PASSIONS
Of course, I don’t work all the time. Balance is important. When I’m not making life easier for people like you, I indulge my love of travel and photography. If you’d like to see more of that side of me, check out my photos at www.annasieniawska.com and my travel blog at www.groovytale.com.
Thanks so much for reading this, exploring the site, and considering how online operations could help you. If you have any questions, please contact me. I want to help you make your business the best it can be.
