International Team Learning Event
On 19th-20th of November 2015 we organized an International Team Learning event in Newcastle, UK on behalf of the Team4Learning association. I was the project leader for organizing this event and I had a great international team working with me. The event had a good variety of speakers and workshops around Team Learning and Innovation at work. In two days we got over 40 people to attend from Finland, Spain, Netherlands, Kenya and all around UK. Many new connections and international collaborations were born and most importantly everyone seemed to have a good time.
International Team Learning event was also part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week.
National Customer Weeks
For two weeks (19.-30.10.2015), teams from 4 different Universities (Northumbria University, Falmouth University, University of the West of England and Bishop Grosseteste University) were competing against each other, who could visit the most customers, send the most offers, close the most deals and make the most money? In those two weeks all the teams together visited 376 businesses, sent 33 offers, closed 8 deals and generated over £7500 cash, amazing results I would say! I was one of the main organizers in this event.
Team Coaching in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK
October 2013 ->
At the moment my biggest project is with Northumbria University and with their totally new “learning by doing” Entrepreneurial Business Management degree. I am working as an assistant Team Coach for the student company’s, helping to bring team learning methods from Tiimiakatemia and develop the degree in cooperation with the other Team Coaches from the University. I really enjoy of working on this, because I can truly use all of my knowledge in this project, it’s also challenging so I get to learn new things everyday which makes it even more fun.
TA’s Global Entrepreneurship Week
TA’s Global Innovation Challenge on Global Entrepreneurship week was organized first time on year 2013 when it was great success, five different countries, eight units and over hundred teampreneurs participated to that.

I was working as a project leader in year 2013 and I got the honor to be the project leader also in 2014. But this year we just want to make it even bigger and even more international then last year, so excited to see how will the week look like in 17th – 24th of November 2014.

Tiimiakatemia Learning Network (aka TALN) is a network of team-coaches and their organizations that build and run Tiimiakatemias and other similar learning centres where people learn teampreneurship. Tiimiakatemia Learning Network is a boundarless network, or should we say a community, that brings teampreneurship advocates and die-hard fans together and acts as a hub for shared projects and development. The network also provides info on teampreneurship learning methodology and helps in creating contacts to parties that are new to Tiimiakatemias.
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs exchange at Akatemia CIC
September 2013 – January 2014
Through Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs exchance programme I got the opportunity to come and work in United Kingdom for five months. My host entrepreneurs in that exchange were Akatemia CIC. On those five months I got to improve my Team Coaching skills with Northumbria University students from their Entrepreneurial Business Management course, I made so many new connections in UK which I would have never been able to make without being in here. I improved my English as a business language which was one of my big goals, I was also leading international event on Global Entrepreneurship week with four other countries from Tiimiakatemia network. I learned so much about the University system in here and also little bit about what does it mean to start something totally new and creative in the University world. And maybe the most important thing was that I was able to clarifie what I really want to do in future and the next steps for it.
