Trainer Maciej Kocon – EY Academy of Business

Maciej Kocon

Consultant and trainer specialising in risk management, financial markets and financial instrument accounting

He has been working with the EY Academy of Business since 2017.

He is a graduate of the Warsaw School of Economics (majoring in finance and banking) and the Aarhus School of Business (M.Sc. in Finance and International Business), as well as the EDHEC Business School (Certificate in Finance).

For 12 years, he worked in the consulting department of one of the so-called ‘Big Four’ companies, participating in consulting projects for banks and financial institutions. He also worked in one of the leading Polish banks as a dealer of financial instruments working with corporate clients.

At EY Academy of Business, he mainly conducts training courses aimed at financial sector institutions, which are related to financial markets, risk management and corporate finance.

What makes Maciek’s training sessions stand out is their workshop format, involving participants, numerous references to practical examples from the Polish market, and a spreadsheet to present examples and case studies.

The friendly atmosphere and accessible form of conducting classes make his training courses beneficial not only to professionals but also to participants with no prior experience in finance and risk management.
