“Just like bedtime stories that we used to listen to as children, every event creates and shares its own story. A well-told story is an event where the narrator and the listener meet, where the participant and the speaker form a personal bond.”

Before you come to Conventa Crossover, a hybrid conference for everyone, who wants to learn, socialize and exchange ideas in an informal, relaxed environment, the organisers wanted you to meet the speakers (or storytellers as they like to call them). Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Ljubljana on 27 August 2020, you can join the conference virtually.

Q: How are we going to organize events in the future?

What I feel is that we will have less and smaller events – more family and friends’ gatherings and less business. We will focus on maximum health and financial risk reduction.

Q: What is your love story with the world of events?

I love to meet people in general. Listening to their stories, inner thoughts and feelings give me great inspiration. I enjoy exchanging experience, sharing wild ideas, collecting different personal and professional perspectives. That’s what events can provide.

Q: In your opinion, what is live marketing’s best advantage vs online?

The 5 senses – An event is a perfect platform to stimulate all five senses. No other communication tool is able to reach this.

Q: What are you bringing to Conventa Crossover and why should an attendee not miss your session?

Hopefully, my presentation can capture the audience via my faith in live events and I can give a few tips on how to argue with our clients beside live events over the online.

Q: What do you expect from the event?

This is the first international conference where my name is on the list of speakers. That will be my first performance on an international stage, so I look forward to a big round of applause☺.
