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.

AmCham Talents program:

  • Contributes to the development of the next generation of business leaders through education and a stimulating environment for discussion and reflection on the challenges that participants face in developing their skills and careers
  • Expands the network of contacts of participants within the circle of their colleagues, highly motivated future decision makers from different sectors
  • Provides the employer with additional tools for professional and personal development of employees and their rewarding
  • Actively includes sponsors of the program in the execution of the program by teams mentoring, participation in the evaluation committee and selection of the Talent of the Year, and by supporting the program, sponsors strengthen their visibility

So far more than 700 young talents participated in the program and gained valuable knowledge from around 60 distinguished speakers. Among others, some of the distinguished speakers were: Damir Vanđelić (Croatia Osiguranje), Branko Roglić (Orbico), Jurica Novak (McKinsey & Company), Katarina Šiber Makar (IN2), Michael Georg Müller, (Raiffeisenbank Austria), Ivan Vidaković, (Microsoft Croatia), Igor Grdić (Vertiv), Aleksandar Zemunić (SELECTIO), Barry Rudolph (Presidio Investors), etc.
