Afsun Gurbanov

I am a Marketing & Communications professional with strong experience, creative background, leadership and managerial skills. I have established a few small start-up projects in the past. Tech start-ups, innovations and entrepreneurship is my passion. Writing a book, teaching at a university, working on multiple projects, keeping myself busy with things I like to do.

Whatever I choose to do, I do with passion and enthusiasm. I believe that believing in what you do will guarantee half the success and commitment will bring the rest.
