Name and surname: Špela Horvat

Company: Sava Hotels & Resorts

Position: Sales manager MICE


As a little girl, I wanted to become a movie star or TV host, someone who is in the foreground. In this spirit, I chose to work on television in high school and later chose study and pursue my career in a variety of media and media formats. Until later, when I gradually felt that my real passion and power is behind the cameras, in backstage – being the one who organizes the show. And I feel really great!

Q: What is your favourite meetings brand?  
Sava Hotels & Resorts, because we truly have the best team.

Q: What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
There are many brave things that I’ve done. I always want to push my limits and bold moves are an indispensable part of this. I have been on the hunt for challenges ever since I was a little girl. As a multiple state champion in taekwondo, the competition ring has taught me the fearlessness at a very young age, being only 10 years old. The fearlessness is still my companion today. Some of brave things for me were jumping from a height of 4000 meters, partially conducting my study in South Korea, swimming with the whale sharks, diving with the wild sharks and mantas, motorbike riding and traveling into the unknown. Life is too short for doing boring things!

Q: What’s your alternative career fantasy?
Imagine a long white beach, crowned with a turquoise sea, surrounded by banana and palm trees. In the middle of this, lies a small eco-friendly hotel designed primarily for divers and all those who are fascinated by the depth of the sea. East of the world, self-sustaining piece of heaven of earth, a place where the world and time go slower. But it would still remain working with people and in hospitality. It would be great, right?

Q: What are you obsessed with at the moment?
Finding the right balance between work and free time for creative thinking and maintaining a sufficient energy.

Q: Your goals before 50?
I don’t think about it, as this is still over 20 years in the future! In any case, following the steps and that by then I will already have left a mark in my environment and being a conscious, compassionate and mature person who will have conditions to live a full, healthy and dynamic life. The best is yet to come.
