AmCham Talents

Contributing to Croatia’s future by developing talented, ethical, open-minded business leaders

The AmCham Talents program was initiated in 2013 with a goal of developing leadership skills of promising young business professionals.

Young professionals recognized as high potential employees within their companies usually have opportunities for postgraduate education and trainings, but lack practical experience and opportunity to develop their soft skills by learning directly from leaders in different industries. This program hopes to bridge this gap and contribute to the personal and career development of such employees through a series of interactive sessions by prominent leaders and networking opportunities with their peers.

So far more than 320 young talents participated in the program and gained valuable knowledge from around 50 distinguished speakers. Some of the distinguished speakers were: Barry Rudolph (Presidio Investors), Jurica Novak (McKinsey & Company), Gordan Kožulj (Deloitte Business Advisory Services), Damir Vanđelić (Croatia Osiguranje), Aaron Fox (KHL Medveščak), Michael Georg Müller, (Raiffeisenbank Austria), Maria Anargyrou-Nikolić (The Coca-Cola Company) etc.
