Why do you think membership in the American Chamber of Commerce is important for businesses operating in Hungary?
American Chamber of commerce has gained a leading position in Hungarian Business environment development by its persistent and long term work. It offers best networking opportunities and is the most influential contributor to the governmental decision from the business side. The member companies benefit of the vast programs and events of this chamber. The chamber is leading the way for future of Hungarian economic environment.
What motivates you to be an AmCham Board Member?
Influencing on important things that make business move forward is very important to me. I think the AmCham board membership is exactly the place for that. It provides an opportunity to stay on the top of things in the Hungarian business environment and influence on future.
Why do you feel you are qualified? What skills do you bring to the position of Board Member?
I have a vast experience of multinational company leadership positions over the last years in various countries. Also I am a mother of two teenage daughters and personally I believe in the diversity and openness in business culture and in life. Combining those aspects, I believe my strength will be to provide an example of how to balance between work and family and bring in ideas how to make that happen for even more people. Also the ongoing digitalization is important element in the business globally and I have seen AmCham in Hungary being consistently active on this area. From my company background I can bring fresh ideas to this discussion as well.
How have you been active in AmCham over the course of the last two years?
As Patron member I have been very active. I was as speaker in the AmCham Career School, actively contributing in the digitalization taskforce, organized international ABB speaker to the AmCham Digital event, also joined several Patron member dinners and the Business meets Government summits in the past three years.
