He has served as aide to the Albanian Prime Minister, Meksi, on issues of Public Administration in general and wage and remuneration policy in particular. He is currently acting as external advisor to the Speaker of the Albanian Parliament, Mrs. Jozefina Topalli, on special issues. As consultant to USAid, World Bank, Albanian Government, Institute of Training of Public Administration, he has worked to produce reports on the state of the matters in the Albanian Government, to write modules and get involved into “train the trainers” sessions and finally to offer advice on how to bring about the required change. As a lecturer he prepared and still offers courses in Ethics and Anticorruption and a course in Marketing Services at the American Graduate MBA/MPA Program in Tirana. As a speaker, he has offered management courses in entrepreneurship and creativity to Albanian businessmen. Gazmend was born in Tirana, capital of Albania. From the very beginning he was told (he has got two elder sisters both very successful businesswomen) that the sky is the limit if we try and work hard and do it honestly. And that is how it started when he thought he would end up being a professional dancer as he did it for almost 12 years. He graduated from Tirana University and earned his Master's Degree from Columbia University in New York City, after which he returned to work in Albania. Year 2008 marked his selection as a Young Global Leader 2008 from DAVOS Economic Forum Jury, and as a lecturer in international schools abroad.
