Blog It Forward – Ewelina Pękała
Hello SAP enthusiasts!
A few words about me…
I’m an initiator of establishing the SAP Community Silesia in Katowice. The group was established November 2019 by me and have three SAP Stammtisch in Katowice behind and several events in 2020 ahead.
During my career path I have had many different roles started from trainings’ organising, then working as an export and marketing specialist, through the role of sales and people manager and ending as BI analyst.
From January 2020, I work for Accenture Technology in Katowice in a project where I can develop reports’ solutions combining SAP BW and BPC.
1. What do you like the most about the city you live and work in?
My city – Katowice in the south of Poland. Despite his industrial character, Katowice is a really green city.
I have a very close distance to parks, reserves or the forest from every place the city what is fantastic. What is more, we have here one of the biggest park in Europe which is 620 ha: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silesian_Park
2. What was your biggest surprise/discovery while organizing/attending community events so far?
While organizing SAP Stammtisch the biggest surprise and also discovery for me was people who appeared at these 3 meetings. I noticed an interesting dependency, the more experienced a person is, the more willingly shares his/her SAP experience and knowledge, and the more open is to any planned initiatives. It sounds very promising and gives many possibilities for futures SAP events in Katowice.
3. What is your hobby or favorite activity outside of the work?
Cycling through the forests is my favorite outside activity. Because the outskirts of Katowice are forested, there are many paths where I can cycle for longer distances over 50 km. I love it!
