Vlad is a talented networker who understood at an early age the value of building a large personal network in many industries and many countries. His corporate experience will come in handy in his entrepreneurial pursuits. His ethics are of higghest standard and is very trustworthy.
Vlad did an amazing job organizing the Startup Weekend. His ability to lead and organize the event was inspiring to everyone that attended it. The network of entrepreneurs, VCs and advisors that Vlad managed to bring to the event is nothing less than impressive and it's all due to his excellent people and leading skills.
Vlad is an entrepreneurial self-starter committed to providing excellent customer service. As Co-Founder of Romanian Managers Cluj, Vlad built up in a very short time a solid network of managers interested in their career-development and providing what they need on an ongoing basis. This has required a lot of patience, persistence, diplomacy and attention to detail. I have always found Vlad charming and thorough in his dealings both with myself and with everyone else I have met in the Cluj Romanian Managers network. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
I have found Vlad to be an eager learner, calculated risk taker, a sound leader which in combination creates an innovative entrepreneur. He is a very organized individual and can think strategically. Several of his associates have a great respect for him which means a lot to me. He has followership. I enjoy having him in my workshops because he adds a good level of experience and maturity to the mix of talent. I recommend him without reservation.
It's Vlad's credit that I learned about business networking as a concept and tool through Romanian Managers. Vlad saw the opportunity to bring the Romanian Managers events to Cluj-Napoca. He successfully organized and promoted the events and it was always both useful and pleasant to attend the events. Thanks to Vlad what I do is more successful by developing and maintaining my business network.
I have been working with Vlad as his manager in Ceva logistics for the last year and I must say that he is a very reliable person: every task that I assigned to him was completed in an outstanding way.He is also very skilled with computers being very much able to put technology to help him performing his tasks.He is a very organized person as well.
He learned a lot as a team leader then as a manager and he was able to coordinate teams as big as 100 people.He helped me a lot in this direction too.He is very good in coordinating the team of supervisors around him as well as the big number of the people that worked for him.
He is gentle but also strong , able to take care at the details and to see the big picture too.Another remarkable feature with him is the fact that knows to be diplomatic enough to serve the company interest.
I therefore recommend Vlad for any kind of people managing position or team manager wherever he might go.
Vlad is the best supportive person at his age I've met yet. He has an excellent listening skill, and good listeners are hunted in any times. Vlad also has a very natural diplomacy in handling and maintaining good relationships. I would always recommend Vlad in any supportive activity, he's the best!
