Who are you really? I'm very passionate about what I do.Personal credo... Work hard for the result.When you were a kid, you wanted to be… a ballerina.You became… a person from the event industry.What would people say about you based on your handwriting? – That I'm a professional scriptologist-conspirator.Which book do you think everyone should read? – Mein Name sei Gantenbein by Max FrischWould you rather be the funniest or the most intelligent person in the room? – We always see ourselves not like others see us. So, probably, if you want to be smart, be funny.The hardest thing about being in events... Human factor.And the easiest? – The plan.Describe how you imagine a conference 100 years from now… I have no idea how many new attributes will be invented but there will definitely still be live people.The best advice you ever received… Learn from everything you face. And draw conclusions.Action or thriller? - Action.Surprise ending or a happy ending? – Happy ending.Practice without theory is… Naturalism.Less is more when… Hm. More is always ahead.At the end of the day… I'm always with the people I love.
