Timea Strihova, Senior Director, Head of Trilligent Brussels


My Job

I am leading Trilligent’s Brussels and UK office, and I am responsible for EU policy and advocacy work at Trilligent globally. I advise clients on EU tech policy and advocacy as well as geopolitical risk management.

My Experience

I am an EU tech policy and geopolitics expert with years of experience in Brussels and across Europe.

Prior to joining Trilligent, I worked as a member state outreach manager at DIGITALEUROPE, where I supported international campaigns on topics including international data flows, cybersecurity and SMEs – and expanded the research capacity of DIGITALEUROPE, designing and overseeing surveys and qualitative expert interviews.

Previously, I worked as a policy and research consultant at the Brussels office of a global consulting firm, and volunteered in the governance and research team of an international NGO, Action on Poverty, in Hanoi, Vietnam. I also worked as a research officer analyzing a nationwide public opinion poll ahead of the elections at the Slovakian think-tank Publicus and served as a Bluebook Trainee at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Budget in Brussels.

My Proudest Achievements

It has been an honour to have built out the Trilligent Brussels office to what is now a team of eight excellent experienced consultants on tech policy and geopolitics. I have also collaborated on the launch and expansion of Trilligent’s Advisory Board, an expert group of senior tech professionals from different geographies and a diverse set of backgrounds.
