M-Powered Projects

We are a team of professionals who help organisations to design and manage innovative projects, products, and services. We’re experts in empowerment and in project management, project writing, and product development using the Design Thinking Method.

Have you participated in a project that was going nowhere? Projects in which the results were poor and team cooperation was frustrating? We bet you have. We see many more bad examples of project management than good in all types of organisation.

At M-Powered Projects, we have developed easy-to-implement methods and tools that will help you to improve your project work and create innovation, whether in a social, education or business environment.

Let us M-Power you!

We empowered


I engaged Marzena Wieczorek of M-Powered Projects to prepare a report on possible partnerships and collaborations with other European countries for our project proposals to our Galway European Capital of Culture 2020 organising committee. Marzena produced a report that far exceeded my expectations. She identified a number of project possibilities in several DG’s; provided an analysis of the relevance and feasibility of each one; listed the key dates; identified potential partners; laid out a time-line of actions; and went as far as establishing preliminary contact with potential partner organisations. The report did more than fulfil my requirements. I am quite certain that it will significantly enhance our project application and will also increase the knowledge of our 2020 committee about the opportunities available in Europe.

I recommend Marzena and her courses. She has a talent for transferring knowledge and sharing her experience. I felt comfortable and looked after. Marzena creates an atmosphere of openness that fosters the acquisition of valuable and up-to-date knowledge. I’m looking forward to implementing the project management tools I’ve gained in my work!

Director of Olsztyn Department, Children’s University

Marzena cares deeply about the quality of learning outcomes and training materials in her courses. Even the smallest detail is well thought-out and planned. The atmosphere during all exercises encourages active participation. The most useful tool I’ve learnt was how to estimate the risk probability and impact of a project.

I really enjoyed the energy and passion of M-Powered’s trainer. The project management workshop was very well-prepared and professional, with many different types of exercises. Another advantage was that the workshop was facilitated in English. It improved my English language skills, especially in relation to project management and EU projects.

The Design Thinking workshop moderated by M-Powered trainers helped our Foundation to define and shape ideas on how to further develop the art and music festivals that we organise in Krakow, Poland. The workshop made us realise that even the most complex idea can be divided into prime factors. Thanks to good planning combined with hard work, success is at our fingertips.

We really appreciate the impeccable professionalism and skills of both Kasia and Marzena from M-Powered, who quickly developed this workshop for us.  From the beginning to the end, I felt that the workshop was inspiring for all participants. All I can do is to wish the M-Powered team every success in their future projects! I fully recommend the M-Powered team as highly professional Design Thinking trainers.

During the project management workshop, you get tools and tips that you can implement immediately in your work. The combination of project management workshops and outdoor activities is a great idea, and an additional advantage is a well-chosen place – Killary Adventure in Connemara! The trainer has super energy and is extremely open and committed.
