The Change Your World project began its mission in the Silesian Voivodeship as the flagship project of the Woman Business HUB – operating at the CCI in Katowice.


Iwona Polkowska, President of Maxwell Leadership Poland, together with Maxwell Leadership Certified Team trainers, summarizes the launch of the initiative in our region and invites you to become active in activities that change our world.


On behalf of Maxwell Leadership, Substantial Partner of the 13th edition of the European Congress of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Katowice, we would like to thank and congratulate the Congress organizer – the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice, the Partners and Sponsors of the event, the Speakers, Panelists and all the Participants.


We hope that from the perspective of the days that have passed since the end of this unique edition of the Congress, the values brought by this event appear even more tangible.



We would like to share important information related to congressional events, and we ask for your attention for a moment:


We listened to the report by Jakub Chełstowski, Marshal of the Silesian Voivodeship, on the transformations taking place in the Silesian Voivodeship in the areas of business, industry, technology application and much, much more with great appreciation. We have no doubt that this region is at a unique moment of change and opportunity.


As a partner of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice, we want to bring our experience and value to the transformative processes, hence, referring to the keynote of the Congress – Are You Ready for Chang/ce? we bring back the important question – What to do and how to act to make change a real opportunity?


Our answer goes to the PEOPLE who are behind every event, in every sphere of the region’s ongoing transformation. The answer comes from John C. Maxwell – a world authority on leadership and ours, Maxwell Leadership – an organization that trains leaders in 167 countries around the world, and it reads:


Expand your leadership, because it’s not the organizations that transform, it’s the people!


If we want to build and develop healthy regions, a healthy country, a healthy economy and turn inevitable CHANGES into OPPORTUNITIES, we must rebuild the foundation of values. Countries around the world are experiencing a crisis of values and a crisis of good leadership. The value deficit can be seen in our organizations, in our communities, in our homes…. We have lost our way…


We all want a good life, and the only way to restore it is to invite people to learn good values.


That’s exactly what the Change Your World social transformation project is – an invitation to leaders in the Silesian Voivodeship to develop value-based leadership.


We were honored to officially launch the Change Your World project on October 27, during the Congress, signing a letter of intent on partnership with Tomasz Zjawiony, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice, and Edyta Kwiatkowska, President of the Woman Business HUB CCI Katowice.



During many years of implementing transformational processes, in which more than 4.7 million people around the world have participated, we have discovered something very important – if people learn and practice good values, then societies, communities, culture, begin to recover.


At this time, as we invite you to participate in the Change Your World project in the Silesian Voivodeship, we ask you to do one thing – to be open about it when information about the project begins to appear in your surroundings. We would also like to inform you that Change Your World is a completely free community project, initiated by volunteer Polish Maxwell Leadership Certified Team trainers. 


We are confident that your entrepreneurial spirit combined with the value that the Change Your World project will bring will create a unique foundation for the success of people, companies and organizations in the region.


Why are we confident? Because entrepreneurs, women and men of business, are extremely important to the development of any country and any culture.


In recognition of your role in transformative efforts, we are giving you a unique gift – a free Entrepreneur DNA Report by John C. Maxwell, making the case for this unique power of entrepreneurs to influence change.
