Hi, I'm Pazbi 

Panagiotis-Zmpigknief Zavatzki

I was born in Greece to Polish & Greek parents, Titsian and Kiki. My family home is in Kalamata (home to the best olives in the world) but currently live in Enfield, London. 

I'm engaged to the wonderful Tavian Hunter (my best friend of 17 years) and planning to get married in 2023. 

I have over 10 years’ experience in digital consultancy, brand development and marketing and setup my business Some Talented People in 2014.

I've has worked with hundreds of SMEs to develop their online and offline presence and I have extensive knowledge in SEO, SEM, PPC, SMO and have worked with companies in London, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dubai, Barcelona, Athens and Norway to increase their online sales, brand awareness and reach.

GOALS

BUSINESS

My goal with the business is to get it to a gross turnover of £10,000,000 pa by 2025.

With a team of 100 staff able in 5 countries helping upwards of 165 clients a year. 

I've also launched another company called WMD and looking to find investment for an ERM and one app. 

Educational

I'm a firm believer of life long learning. 

It was stated that reading 3 books on a topic you will be an expert. 
My goal is to read 12 books a year. 

Becoming an expert on 4 topics every year.  
I'm also in the planning stages of writing my own book. 

I have a reading list if you want recommendations.

Personal

Planning our wedding for September 2023. 

I'm also on track to being 95kg. 
From my heaviest which was 135kg.

Despite being half-Polish my Polish is still at the level of a 3 year old so I'm also learning via Duolingo.

Accomplishments

At the age of 8 I was diagnosed with Stage 4, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and due to complications from a bone marrow transfer, I lost the ability to walk. After 38 months of chemo therapy and several operations, I beat the cancer and through a lot of effort and physical training learned to walk again.

During my last year of  treatment I even walked a half marathon to raise money for Leukaemia Society and at age 18 I climbed Getty Mountain in California.

I also setup the first ever fully BSL (British Sign Language) Slam Poetry event which was featured by the BBC. It was a sold out event and we raised almost £2000 for charity. I've also managed to raise £400 for FBS via a live streamed waxing of my legs (ouch).

My recent focus has been mentoring and I'm very pleased with the success of my mentees from University of Westminster and Southgate School. I'm currently working with my 4th mentee.
