Dear AmCham members,
AmCham Young Professionals program is the reason why I'm highly motivated that AmCham Slovenia actively tries to help create more pleasant Slovenian business environment. Young Professionals are proof that we have young business leaders of the exceptional potential. I'm happy that today’s editorial is a column written by Blaž Jakič, AmCham Top Potential of the Year 2013. After reading it you will understand why this program is a spring of positive energy and why my job is such a pleasure ... Enjoy hot summer day! Ajša
Young Professionals program was overall a fantastic experience. The program
offers its participants an excellent opportunity to meet new people and
establish business connections with talented and ambitious individuals. I was
impressed by the level of enthusiasm and determination of the participants to
make the most out of the opportunities provided by the program. I am confident
that I do not speak just for myself when I say that thanks to the program I
have established both personal as well as business connections that will only
grow stronger in the years to come.
program itself enables its participants to gain knowledge and experience
pertinent to the modern business environment in an interesting and interactive
way at workshops and lectures. The quality of lectures and workshops exceeded
my expectations and it would be unfair to the rest of the lecturers and
presenters if I tried to pick out the one that impressed me the most. Even
though in some topics presented I had already had more experience and knowledge
than in the others, each session proved to be both interesting as well as
useful in terms of clearly presented implications for everyday business
privilege I was able to experience was the selection process for AmCham Top
Potential of the Year 2013. When selected for the final I did not know what to
expect and decided to enjoy it, not take it as a competition. The “speed
dating” experience, with ten proven and experienced interviewers, was
challenging but enjoyable. And after the selection of five super finalists the
game became even more fun with the task to make a one minute long movie about
ourselves. This experience was something completely new for me. But,
undoubtedly, the pinnacle of the program was the final event, where certainly
none of the finalists had expected we would be required to prove ourselves that
far »out of the box« by singing, dancing, drawing and acting. The event
achieved its goal because I am sure I speak for all the super finalists when I
say we had a great time and, after summarizing the feedback I received, I am
safe to say that the audience did not suffer too much. To be the one selected
as the 3rd generation Top Potential was simply just the icing on the cake.
Potential award did not go unnoticed among my friends, colleagues and
superiors. It certainly is an honor and in a way a big responsibility, because
»a potential« is something that needs to be developed and improve in many ways
to achieve true success. And, as a sort of a representative of an entire
generation after winning the award, I can promise that we will do everything in
our power to achieve it.
In the end
I would like to thank Ajša, Maja and the rest of the AmCham team for putting a
lot of effort and enthusiasm in the program and I certainly must not forget our
colleague, Uroš Žust, whom I believe we all need to thank that the informal
gatherings were at least as frequent, pleasant, and successful as the formal
part of the program.
