Q: Have you always wanted to work in the meetings industry?
Actually, I never thought before to work in this industry. This is a totally new thing for my country and it has started to develop recently. So I got in the game really by accident.
Q: Why is your destination/country the best in the world?
Albania is a beautiful place, a good combination of history, nature, culinary experience and warm and friendly people. It is easy reachable by international flight and the distance between places in the country are short.
Q: What would be the first thing you would show every visitor to your country?
Definitely people. Meeting the local people and showing their hospitality to our guests would be one of the first things I would like to show to our visitors!
Q: What has been your “star” moment so far and what is your favourite project with which you would praise yourself?
My “star” moment usually is at the end of an event, when you have the handshakes from everyone and they say “thank you”. This is the best moment, when you realise that all your effort and work has been rewarded and that the client is happy.
Q: What motivates you the most at work?
It is always challenging to create and implement a new event. It is always exciting and always keeps me going!
Q: How do you deal with stress?
You are right, there is a lot of stress taking care that everything goes well and also dealing with emergencies coming up during the event. Naturally I am a quiet and reasonable person, which helps a lot. Also, some brain games tips always help!
Q: When were you last angry/disappointed and why?
Ha-ha I never get angry. No, there are a lot of cases where you might get angry. I always try to be reasonable and see how I can resolve the emergency, not whose fault it is or who should be punished!
Q: What will be new in your business in 2015?
I like technology a lot. I believe that this might make a difference in the future.
Q: What did you learn to do last week?
In business I should try to have my partners close and not take everything for granted.
Q: Where have you spent this year’s holiday and why?
I was in Asia: Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia. I love these countries. I love everything there: their way of work, their food… but not the air-conditioning.
Q: If there were no time and financial constraints, where would you go?
Latin America would be my next destination.
Q: What would be the title of your autobiography?
‘Doing the work he likes and loving the work he does’.
