»We want and need to learn from the best. Through mentoring and exchange of knowledge and experience we need to more actively connect with successful young Slovenes that are outstanding in the world. Managers will not be divided into young or old but into successful and unsuccessful; into those, who leave behind the ashes of something that used to be, and those, who are able to build timeless successful business stories.«

»A new generation, following us, wants to feel guided but at the same time wants to be independent. They want to do smart work and understand the wider meaning of what they do. They want role models they can learn from. I’m glad in Manager’s Association we do a lot of work in the field of young people, women and foreigners and with it express the much needed openness to diversity.«
