Ferry Saur, a Dutch-Australian business consultant, chats with Jolanta Wolska.

What brings you to Warsaw?
I made many visits to Warsaw, the first one in 2004 to visit my sister who was working here. Many people were suggesting that my skills were needed in Poland, so I decided to come and set up my business here.

Are you committed to staying in Warsaw?
Oh yes. I relocated here in 2009, bought an apartment, and registered my business as a Polish company.

What do you want to do in Warsaw?
I want to help companies define their strategic plans and understand their current capabilities. For Poland to be Europe’s star performer, companies must be performance-oriented, have a clearly defined strategy, plan for business continuity and succession and introduce streamlined and effective workflows. In many cases senior management here has a mindset that is still in the pre-transformation days. Significant progress is evident, but there is definitely room for more.

Why Warsaw?
Warsaw is a dynamic and fantastic central location with easy access to the rest of Europe. People here are warm and friendly. Also, Poles do not appear as stressed as people in other countries. The public transport in Warsaw is good and everything I need is close by—shops, cafes and restaurants.

Have you noticed any changes in Warsaw?
Warsaw is a beautiful city and constantly changing. The development and progress in such a short time is phenomenal. I walk for two hours every weekday right through the changing seasons and always have my camera with me. Maybe I look at things more attentively than the locals. I love Warsaw, its ambiance and its sense of history. I feel at home here even though I don’t speak much Polish yet.
