Our History

European Diplomats was founded in 2021 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, by its original Co-Founders Alistair Starling, Daniela Abentung and Michal Gawryl. They bring diverse backgrounds from the British Foreign Service, Public Affairs and the Headhunting Business. Together they formed European Diplomats, a young, fast-paced digital government affairs agency. Employing their people skills, polished over years of work experience, and harnessing the power of the digital, technology, automation and artificial intelligence, European Diplomats’ ambition is to innovate the government affairs sector.
