INTRODUCING

Planet Fanatics’ Network is a patent enterprise which realises its sustainability projects based on more than ten years professional experience and with the most authentic national and international experts.

The company does not want to take on all works, but the most challenging, innovating tasks, based on real intention. Because there are enough studies, phrases, promotions, now it’s time to change.

A couple years later to understand the business’ approach better, she studied on Oxford Brookes University and got a diploma MSc on International Business.

For years now she is the head of Magyar Telekom‘s sustainability team. She is responsible for developing and coordinating the companie’s sustainability strategy, and representing the corporation in the European scene.

She started her career in the end of nineties. Her firts project was about the environmental development of the company, later she became responsible for the group-level environmental coordination.

In 1998 she started the co-operation with other European telecommunications companies within ETNO. In 2002 she launched a project about ICT’s effect on climate change. In 2004 she co-organised and hosted the Fist European Conference on Telecommunications and Sustainability, and since 2005 managed the project of “Saving the Climate @ the Speed of Light” together with WWF.

Since January 2007 she has a new hobby, supported by radiocafé 98.6 having a radio show about sustainable development. As editor and presenter every Monday 7 PM she is raising awareness of holnapután‘s audience in an informal atmosphere.

In 2008 she decided to organise Sustainability Day, which is an irregular, festival kind of conference. The target group of the event is the students and the intellectual young people between the age 18 and 35. Since this time the number of participants are doubling annually. Guests are involved from opinion leaders (e.g. Gábor Rohonyi, film director), professional experts (e.g. Günter Pauli, prof. István Láng), and topic-sensitive celebrities (e.g. Ági Szalóki singer, Márk Linczényi pop star, Simon Szabó film director, Péter Novák singer, actor, dancer).

Working together with Péter Novák for years, they became friends. The latest result of their friendship is the program, called Jövő/Menő, launched in 2010. The initiative is aiming to introduce the realisation of sustainable development’s elements in a disadvantaged region through people’s life and problems, involving the young society, with different kind of volunteer and community programs.
