    MAGDALENA SLOWINSKA JANOWITZ

    Marketing & Innovation Strategist

  • About Me

    I’m an experienced marketing and communication strategist, project and campaign manager, social media expert, community developer, and event consultant, and I specialise in research-based projects and customised promotional solutions, from training to large scale campaigns and networking/community events. With 7 years of experience working across private, public and third sector organisations on various frontiers between disability, accessibility, mental health, innovation, technology, entrepreneurship, education, employment, games and society.

    I also collaborate with NGOs, charities, medical and educational institutions and businesses helping with entrepreneurship-based activities, mentoring, disability and mental health advisory, campaigns, community development, consumer psychology, human rights consultancy and advocacy, partnerships, communication, supervision, academic review, fundraising, service and UX design and educational and professional use of technology, social media and play.

     

    My extensive experience is mainly grounded within my psychology, OT and research background and a three-year long role as a Sense Maker at MakeSense - a community of people interested in social innovation and enterprise. We’ve got ‘HotSpots’ in cities all over the world and hold workshops encouraging people to get involved in local social enterprises to help them solve specific challenges through open source UX and Innovation tools. Moreover, I'm a member of the TECH LONDON ADVOCATES - an unrivalled collection of tech leaders, experts and investors uniting to form the most influential independent, private sector group in London. I'm also a founder of the two award winning social impact start-ups: Bepartofit Hub - a community of inclusion makers, and Includeon - an accessible e-work platform for Deaf and disabled people, and Accessible Tech Network - an initiative to generate bold solutions that enhance the quality of life for disabled people through the use of accessible technologies. We offer consulting services and accessible innovative events: conferences, seminars, webinars and intensive 24hour and 48hour idea prototyping hackathons around a specific challenge.

     

    As a freelancer, I focus on various aspects of service design i.e. User and market research, event management, marketing innovation, consumer psychology, user insights, intra and entrepreneurial innovation strategy, and how new platforms and projects facilitate social impact via utility, transformation, sustainability, transparency, and accessibility for their Users.
