>> I welcome the decision, that the last official lecture for the AmCham Young Professional group was thematically focus on the area of emotional intelligence. Given today’s competitive environment, I believe, that developed emotional intelligence is the last line of defence, which allows the sellers and people in managerial functions to maintain their humanity, integrity and socially responsible behaviour, three values that despite the pressure and desire for success should never be forgotten or allowed to become endangered. <<

>> It’s absolutely refreshing to listen to someone who exudes, not only talks about emotional intelligence. We had a unique opportunity to talk to the President of AmCham Slovenia, Matej Potokar. Among other things he reminded us how important it is for leaders to keep their team members motivated and that sometimes, doing that is in the little things, one just needs to listen. AmCham Young Professionals has once again proven itself as an outstandingly organized and motivational “knowledge machine”. Their top team made this get-together extremely positive, enjoyable and enabled future Slovenian leaders to socialize. Absolutely worth the time and energy! <<
