Sylwia Niklas is originally Polish, but feels like a citizen of the world.
She has lived in England, USA, South Korea, China and since 2010 in Norway. She has a master's degree in administration and continuing education in digital marketing.
Sylwia has extensive experience as a coordinator, project support and project manager in finance, including from GE Money Bank and Deutsche Bank.
In addition to her career in finance, Sylwia has always been interested in international art and culture exchange. During a long stay in China, she had the opportunity to develop this interest, through a collaboration with the Polish consulate in China.
In China, she also collaborated with the Shenzhen Women's International Club (200 members from around the world), where she was responsible for developing and coordinating the membership program.
Here she had a special responsibility to provide new benefits for the members and to develop the program with various partners.
Sylwia studied Chinese at Shenzhen University, and completed several exams up to HSK 3 level (intermediate level), before she and her family came to Norway in 2019.
The experience from living abroad came in handy when Sylwia was to settle in Norway. After a year of language courses, she started in her first job, as a customer manager with responsibility for marketing at the travel agency goTO Haugesund Travel.
After a year, she received an offer from the company Boston AS to build and develop a new business strategy.
Sylwia thrives in an international environment, and has contacts around the world, but also knows from personal experience how difficult it can be to adjust to living in a new country.
Now she wants to use her experiences and communication skills in the project devoted to Polish women in business, with the goal of supporting Polish business women in the integration process here in Norway.
Sylwia speaks Norwegian, English and Chinese.
