First Annual Serbian HR Conference`07 – HR at the crossroads

Serbian HR Association and Serbian Foreign Investors Council have very successfully organized the first Human Resources Conference “HR at the crossroads” on 3rd and 4th December 2007 in Hyatt Regency Hotel in Belgrade.

This was part of the news article I have written for Emagazin. Now, honestly, what can I tell you how it was? I can not wait for the next year conference to participate again. Everything, form conference events, content, speakers, participants, round tables to after conference events like networking banquet was extra ordinary. Impeccable organization. I had a strong feeling (deja-vu) I am back in the USA again (at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York).

The most valuable asset of conferences like this is meeting new exciting people. I was very lucky to meet Mr. John Cantwell co-founder of Dramatrix company from Budapest. John was born in the USA (Long Island) and has lived some time in Flushing, Queens (New York City) where I also lived from 1986 to 1990, so we were neighbors at that time. John has lived in Budapest for the last 15 years and currently resides there with his partner Anita, and their two young sons, Levente and Akos.


You will have to see them to believe what they do. In short, they engage real actors as trainers to demonstrate (dramatize) communication (public presentation) techniques and styles. I hope we could work out some kind of partnership with them and offer our services together on Southeast European business training market.

Many thanks to Mr. Nebojsa Rako, my dear friend and organizer of this conference, HR manager of Holcim Serbia corporation and founder of Serbian HR Association, for the wonderful experience we all have had. It feels so good when you can have both of two different worlds, do good business networking, learn and hear good and useful things, and at the same time have so much fun.
