Strategic Initiatives Manager

Anna started with Kopernik as a Finance fellow working on developing Performance Indicators for the Wonder Women program. She has since crunched all kinds of data and has most recently been working as a manager for the Strategic Initiatives team that offers advisory services to external clients as well as conducting Kopernik's own innovative research projects. Anna holds a degree in Business Administration with specialization in finance and marketing from Schulich School of Business in Canada. Before joining Kopernik she worked for a global banking institution and ran an educational social enterprise in Cambodia. It was here that she grew interested in bridging the gap between social programs and business models. Born in Russia, Anna grew up in Canada and together with her husband has been calling South East Asia home for the past 7 years. When she's not looking at spreadsheets Anna enjoys spending time high up in the mountains or deep under the water, as far away from her computer as possible.

The answers ranged from “no involvement” to “fully involved.”1 We found that the increasing participation of the spouse corresponded to proportionately higher sales - but only to a certain point.
