Q: What is your favorite meetings brand?
Getting to know Union hotels, of which I am lucky to be a part of since last year, has shown me a great deal. We not only offer accommodation, culinary services and meeting facilities, we offer and fulfil a variety of client’s wishes and expectations, through personalised service. We always do our utmost best.
Q: What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
Waking up one morning and deciding to move to London. Finishing my undergradute studies in Ljubljana brought me to the crossroad of what I wanted to do in life. Following the road to Event Management brought me to London. Alone and not knowing what to expect, but it was the best decision I ever made to succeed in the career I chose.
Q: What’s your alternative career fantasy?
It’s funny, but when I was 8 years old I was drawing pictures and making plans for my own hotel. Today, nearly 20 years later, I am working at Union hotels, a landmark of Slovenia’s hospitality. It seems life has always been steering me into this (right) direction. But if I had to choose a different path – photography is my second passion.
Q: What are you obsessed with at the moment?
Right this moment – my two cats. I love animals and my Nala and Lexy are just adorable little things.
Q: Your goals before 50?
They say that goals that don’t have a timeline are called dreams. So, setting the timeline at the age of 50, I aspire to living my life surrounded by people I love and things I enjoy doing. Balancing a family-life with work, along with great true friends, seeing the world and its glories, together with a positive energy and passion for living.
