Q: What is the best part of your job?

Every day is different from the previous, so to put it plainly – I absolutely love my job. One example is the months of preparations for the European Food Summit where I got to meet truly remarkable individuals. That is, people who inspire with their stories and encourage us to take a more progressive stance and strive for a brighter future. Finally, what I appreciate most in my job is working with the best team in the world (#jezersekteam) in creating unforgettable (culinary) experiences.

Q: What would make your job easier?

That despite our limited size, we would finally realize our greatness. It makes me happy that, together with a team of extraordinary colleagues and others as well as with the perfect combination of boldness and creativity, we have managed to organize a culinary event which has quickly become one of the most popular ones in Europe. Personally, I am hoping for more similar projects where every individual is fully engaged to deliver something genuinely spectacular.

Q: Last year, what was your best idea?

To keep going, despite the occasional obstacles, and make the European Food Summit a reality. And to prove to those who were suggesting that we might have bitten off more than we could chew that Slovenians should take a more ambitious stance and a more confident outlook on the future.

Q: What are you most proud of in business?

That we have succeeded in creating something incredible and unique.

Q: … and in your private life?

The moments that are truly unforgettable. And when it gets tough… just #keepfighting.

Q: Wisdom/motto?

Work hard, play harder.
