Educated internationally, Adina has lived and worked in France, Germany, USA, Australia, Romania and the UK, is multilingual and savvy in cross cultural dynamics. Her work and life experience have naturally led to her integrative polymath mindset and ability to use cross-functional multi-disciplinary sources of knowledge in her work.

Her thinking and practice are informed by extensive international business experience, advancements in science and technology, applied business psychology, cross cultural savvy, academic activity and extensive continued personal and professional development.
Adina’s approach to life and work is integrative, combining strategy and tactics, and drawing from multiple disciplines and functions. All coming together under the principles of dialectic philosophy and complex systems theory, which in her view provide a most helpful and flexible framework that closely reflects the multifold nature of the human condition and the dynamics of our technology driven changing world.
