My name is Ilinca Dumitru-Blanchard and I accompany savvy impact-driven businesses and organisations to build powerful, sustainable and long-lasting projects, businesses and brands in the social, health and wellbeing areas.
It all started at the age of 5 with my love for languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian, along with my mother tongue, Romanian.
I was 15 when I decided I wanted to go out of my comfort zone and study abroad. After high school, this dream came true and I started my studies in Spain. It was then when I also made a big leap and started aside my voyage in the entrepreneurship world with my small business as a language trainer. It was my way of mixing my competences and having a positive impact on other people’s lives.
It’s been a true roller coaster that has allowed me to grow personally and professionally.
Eight years later, I accepted a challenging job position at the European Institutions in Brussels. For five years, I worked in the Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion policies. This experience allowed me to be “on the other side” and to analyse up close the many challenges society, businesses and entrepreneurs were facing, along with the continously growing changes in today’s societies.
I dealt with a broad range of issues such as health equity, poverty and social exclusion, impactful leadership and governance, inclusive projects, women’s place in the 21st century, youth challenges, underrepresented minorities, vulnerable groups, ageing-related issues or European funding.
But what most draw my attention was the state of the social and health policies from a sustainable development point of view. I started to question myself:
How can we empower ourselves to build more equity and a create healthier societies?
Why are there so many gaps and how can we build equality for the groups at risk?
What are the connections between health, gender equality and climate change?
What is the role of the organic products on our health and those that produce them?
How can we reach more growth and competitiveness by giving more power to women in the decision-making area?
How can a complete shift have a positive butterfly effect on our planet and society?
I knew it was time to translate my passion, knowledge and insights to action: a mix of policy analysis, EU funding and business knowledge.
I decided to follow my vision and values and created my own consultancy specialised in social affairs and health aspects of the sustainable development.
Since taking this important leap back in 2016, I have accompanied many other purpose-driven businesses and organisations from all over the world.
Together, we built successful and valuable social projects that aim to make an impact on social equity and people’s health.
Start the biggest marathon ever, transform other people’s lives and become an engaged active actor of your ecosystem!
