Local, global, unique

The area of tourism and hotel industry has bloomed incredibly over the last 40 years. The last decade has witnessed the digitalisation of business and communication processes, with global shifts in the travelling patterns due to less expensive means of transport and with the appearance of new global tourist and marketing platforms, also based on the so-called sharing economy. The essence of the hotel business nevertheless remains the same, namely hospitality and focus on the guest and their unique experience.

Stuck in an unenviable average

On the scale of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI), Slovenia has always moved between the 25th and 28th place, showing that its position has been more or less the same. A strong Slovenia's point is that there are few areas where it is weak. It has an attractive image as regards the quality of life, but it can be further improved. On the other hand, Slovenia has such tax and social system that it is expensive to bring people into the country.

Perspective is everything

It crossed my mind “How nice it is to be a member of the Managers’ Association!” I am leaving ABC Accelerator, where I attended the first event Elephant in the room, full of impressions, new knowledge and new acquaintances with interesting people. Before I became a member of the Managers’ Association, I was their outside observer. But as is usually the case, things sometimes look completely different when you look at them from the other side and connect or get familiar with them. It is the matter of perspective.

(New) management tests

We are in a period of economic growth and positive challenges that we face working as managers. The economic growth compared to the pre-2008 period is based, among other, on the entrepreneurial and managerial capacity of Slovenians, which has gained new momentum in recent years. We are happy about the climb in the IMD competitiveness ranking published recently, but we are still to face crucial moments which will decide on the direction in which Slovenia will go next. Yes, the elections.

Only limitations are those we set up in our own minds

Good leaders are rare. I have often heard and read that one can learn how to be a leader and many also try to. Myself, I believe that a leader is born, not made.

Management without borders

“Why disruption of our own business model? Because we want to be part of change creators not followers,” says Jarmila Plachá, Director of the Czech Škoda DigiLab, which is turning digital transformation to Škoda’s advantage. Since mid-2016 when this car giant started to create via a common platform something that a number of other companies are still preparing for, i.e. an actual transformation, as they conquer the world by their holdings in Israel, Germany and China. From the Czech Republic, of course. Why did Foxconn, the largest manufacturer of electronics, which employs as much as 1.3 billion people all over the world, establish Foxconn DRC – Design & Research Center in Prague?

International Section with new president

At its January meeting in connection with the Annual Reception, the Board of Managers' Association of Slovenia entrusted me with the task of running the International Section. In the wake of Maria Anselmi, who led the section with great success for a long time, it will certainly not be easy to set new accents. I am happy to face this challenge and ask all managers to support me in this.

Either we are even better together or we are not better at all

When my appointment to this position was approved, my friends and those who know me a little better asked me why I was interested in this challenge. I have a keen interest in establishing connections and searching for synergies. This can be quite a challenge in Slovenia, but we have always managed to make something good out of it.

Slovenia as a Laboratory of Green Mobile Future

We are in the midst of an extraordinary transition from carbon-based economy and a society based on the assumption of limitless availability of natural resources and endless accumulation of material wealth, and on individualism, to a sustainable carbon-free society of the future based on renewable sources, respect for dissimilarity and excellence of mutual relations and our close mutual connections.

Digital technology already provides extraordinary ways of connecting. Cooperation at personal level, within organisations or between organisations has been freed from old, clumsy and time-consuming operations.
