Piros Pazaurek

creative producer of the Hungarian Summit

I believe we can all make a difference and have a positive impact on the world around us.

Living in Volusia County since 2011, I founded my marketing company in 2015, leveraging my 15+ years of international marketing experience with a roster of clients in both Florida and Europe, and then launched the non-profit HungarianHub to foster networking between innovative business and community leaders from Hungary and United States.

I represent the interests of the local Hungarian communities, strengthening commercial and economic relations between Hungary and the United States of America, and promoting cultural and academic relations including tourism, internships and student trips.

I was inagurated as Honorary Consul of Hungary in Daytona Beach, Central Florida in 2019.

Edit Dukai

Project manager
Bio

I grew up in Vojvodina, Serbia. After completing secondary school, I graduated from the University of Pécs with a bachelor's and master's degree. I am currently a PhD student at the Doctoral School of Earth Sciences. During my studies, my main area of interest was the career path of Hungarian young people from abroad. From the very beginning of the research, I considered it important to gain professional experience. From my own viewpoint, a higher education degree is not a goal, but a tool for the future! That’s why I’ve tried myself in several areas, and I can say that the fields of community building, talent management, and HR are absolutely close to me. (:

The driving force of my life is human interaction and communication. I have been working in the field of HR for over 12 years now, where I've had the opportunity to assist hundreds of people in finding employment. Besides my profession, I also engage in theater performances and am working on establishing both traditional and children's theater.


I've always desired to connect with the American Hungarian community. Therefore, in 2020, I successfully joined the Hungarianhub team, where I was given the chance to initiate and execute the B-TERV project and the Unlimited Age program.


I take great pride in being part of the Hungarian Summit event series for the fourth year now. It's truly fulfilling to witness the expansion, diversity, and progress of the programs year after year.


Currently, I am contributing to the work of the Hungarian Summit from Hungary, and it brings me immense joy to be able to assist all our dear guests.
