Maria Tiunova (Moscow, Russia) comes from a business perspective. Having spent over 15 years in advertising, doing strategic planning and people and culture work at Leo Burnett Creative Agency, she became fascinated by narrative ideas and started applying bits of them to her work. In 2016, she founded Communa Project meant to strengthen organisational communities through narrative practices. Maria does organisational and career counseling, and has a broader interest to working with communities in different contexts.
