Luisa Ciciriello

President

I am an Italian.

I was born in Rome and I have studied at the renowned Conservatory of music ‘Santa Cecilia’ of Rome. I’m an opera singer, a music teacher and I have been the conductor of IWG choir since 2015. I am married and I have a son.

Before being president of IWG I was the vice-president and covered the role of activity groups coordinator.

I love meeting people and sharing with them my passion for music.

I am an avid reader especially biography. In fact, I think life is sometimes more incredible than a novel.

Parul Agarwal Goel

Communications Manager

I am an Indian who first got expatriated from my lovely country back in 2014, when my husband took an international assignment with Unilever in Portugal.  In last 6 years, as a family we have stayed in 3 countries (Portugal, Netherlands and Poland) and it has been an amazing experience to see so diverse cultures, which I personally love and cherish…

I am an MBA and a Law Graduate. I have always been academically inclined, and this led me to take academics as a chosen professionally choice. I have taught graduate students for 7 years. I took a backseat from professional life/work when my daughter was born and that’s when the new chapter of my life began.

We shifted as a family to Warsaw in 2018, and frankly this city has been kind to us, and we enjoy the green carpet of this city. I am an active mom of two lovely kids. I love to read books, sketch and travel.
