Irina is a savvy political strategist with over 15 years of experience helping companies successfully navigate some of the toughest business challenges in the halls of the European Parliament, Berlin’s Reichstag and Vienna’s Hofburg.

She is an unconventional strategist who offers innovative and fresh approaches to confront entrenched issues, especially in science and technology.

She leads with the belief that“the sky is the limit”, and not just because she’s a licenced pilot.

With a PhD in political science and as a certified coach, she offers unique insight into both the political process and human behaviour.

Irina is a sought after lecturer for her insider experience in European public affairs. She has an impressive record of scholarly publications, amongst them the leading German-language guide to EU lobbying.
