Elena Gramatikovska is an education alchemist. She believes in ‘unique people, unique situations, unique solutions- not a one size fits all’. One of Elena’s greatest passions is exploring ways to create the suitable alchemy that will spark people’s unique creativity. She is interested in what makes you come alive and how you can be more of that. How can we keep the sparks alive and growing? Elena believes that compassion and change making is an inside out process that starts with the Self.
Following the calling of her heart led Elena through classical music training, running an NGO, combining the process of music making with servant leadership and working in different communities. The beneficial result of Elena’s rigorous development as a musician is that she maintains a sharp sense of discipline, routine and commitment. The same training also left her with an acute understanding that creativity thrives best in an environment where mistakes are welcome, where strict norms are softened to best respond to the unique needs of the individual. Elena believes that education is not something that happens exclusively between four walls in education institutions, it is a hands-on, life-long experience with no set curriculum. She is passionate about creating opportunities for cross sector innovation as she strongly believes it is the only way to respond to the ever changing, emerging future with fresh insight.
