Don’t think inside the box and don’t think outside the box…Don’t even know where the box is. You can’t force creatives into a box. If you try, they’ll no longer be creative. And no one will want your box. Digital world is my place⭐️ Sharing my knowledge is my favorite part of my day through all my social media accounts. Therefore, sharing my knowledge is the best way to learn and retain knowledge for myself.


Dawid Ziolkowski

I’m working in the IT almost 12 years thou I finished management studies, after years I know that this was one of the important factors for me.

I’m working close with Users and always looking to find the Business Value to deliver what will really help. I participated in many projects, building various automatizations and workflows, that is why I feel so good with Power Automate. Next to that of course there is User Experience which is the key and one of the deciding factors of success and that is why Power Apps are in my daily work and I like them so much.

I strongly believe that all the Digital tools are for people and Power Platform can help anyone to resolve their day-to-day challenges or support the work and make it more efficient. That is why I’m currently working to establish a Citizen Developers framework which will support Onboarding, Learning, Governance of all New and Active Makers. This is huge challenges but at the same time fascinating journey.

Except all above I love to interact with community #PowerAddicts, speak at the conferences and writing my own blog where I’m sharing my learnings. #SharingIsCarring
