In business, it’s not only about what we know, but also who we know. Despite all the current trends, nothing can replace the personal human contact. Business is done by people, with people, because of people.
One of the most prominent projects in the past year that was dedicated, above all, to the networking of entrepreneurs in the entire Adriatic region, was the Business Café. It has everything that a project needs to succeed: a good idea, continuity, presence in all markets, good guests … and the remarkable energy of Kristina Ercegović, the author of the project. The energy that does not represent the mere struggle for a job in the existential sense, but a struggle for an idea. It can sometimes be very difficult, uncertain and toilsome. But when it succeeds, the happiness follows. On this front, Kristina is most certainly a happy woman.
The two basic messages of Business Café are: We are not alone, we all go through the same things and It’s possible to make it here and now, in our region, in spite of everything and everyone, which is very well illustrated by the stories of all the guests of Business Café so far.
Wishing that the 2016 be your best year ever, Business Café is sending you a nice gift – an e-booklet about the importance and power of networking that will help you take advantage of your stay at the Business Café and all other events more efficiently.
