I believe learning and personal improvement are lifelong processes, especially in today’s dynamic society and the boom of innovations that are changing business and everyday life. I have learnt the most important practical lessons over the years in my communication with people with vast knowledge, a long-term vision, constructive energy and an ability to see beyond the obvious. I believe these are qualities that are mandatory if one wants to be successful. As a manager, I strive to be analytical, objective, to apply a constructive approach, to benefit the most from all situations, including the hardest ones, and I always think several moves ahead.
