WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING INNOVATION CURRENTLY INFLUENCING YOUR SECTOR?

For me, it’s Cloud. A few years ago, Cloud was perceived only as a big technological experiment. Today, the cloud became a new standard, and its use has brought an expansion of many other technologies and innovations in areas like Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, and lots of others.

WHAT SECTORS HAVE THE BIGGEST POTENTIAL TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF SLOVAK ECONOMY?

One of the sectors with the greatest potential is the IT sector, not only because I am its representative, but especially because there is a great need and great demand for IT services and IT solutions in Slovakia. Already today IT affects almost every single industry and is present in every single business and household and this trend will just continue.

WHAT SHOULD BE THE GOALS FOR THE SLOVAK ECONOMY IN THE NEXT TEN YEARS?

Key goal should be massive investment and an increase in the quality of education with focus on key areas such as the aforementioned IT sector. And at the same time, science and research in companies or universities, which represents areas with huge potential for the future.

WHAT DO YOU APPRECIATE THE MOST ABOUT MEMBERSHIP IN AMCHAM?

I really appreciate the ambition of Slovak AmCham – to make Slovakia a better place to live and do business by working on improving the business environment and increasing the competitiveness of the Slovak economy.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU IN WORK?

Success is a great motivation for me, even greater are failures, but the biggest ones are probably good relations and super colleagues around me.
