“When you think it’s over …” Come to Ozalj!
This is the announcement of the agency by Petar Ćurić, an agency behind a major national project entitled “Branding of Croatia in the world” – a conference on branding nation and public, cultural and scientific diplomacy, where some of the most successful Croatian returnees, immigrants, and future returnees will exhibit.
In cooperation with the State Office for Croatians outside the Republic of Croatia, the Croatian Heritage Foundation, the Croatian chamber of the economy and Karlovac County – this year under the auspices of the City of Ozalj and the mayor of Ozalj Gordana Lipšinić. This project is held for the fourth year in a row in our country, and for the first time in Ozalj, in the Ozalj Castle from 20th to 22nd April 2018.
The project is considered one of the best conferences in Croatia in the last 20 years. Rarely seen the concentration of Croatian mind and excellence in one place by the number of excellent lecturers:
Davor Pavuna (Tesla World Foundation), physicist, inventor, a professor at the Institute in Lausanne. Former US President Obama’s energy adviser.
Martina Filjak, the best and most prized Croatian pianist in the world.
Andrija Čolak, owner of the most successful Croatian franchise in the world Surf’n’Fries and part of the team of inventors of the clever umbrella of KISHA. Considered as “Young Hope” by International Franchise Association, the largest franchise association in the world.
Miroslav Vrankić, inventor of “readers of thoughts” and one of the few Croatians in “Europe 100 Outstanding Innovators”.
Goran Bandov, Dean of the High School of International Relations and Diplomacy Dag Hammarskjold, Lawyer, Politologist, Expert for International Political Relations and International Public Law.
Anja Bauer Minkara, owner of Fabular, the only specialized branding agency in the region. For 14 years she was running Brandoctor in partnership with Bruketa and Žinić. Belonging to the Hall of Fame brand consultants.
And many highlighted individuals with undisputed financial talents and influence (Plinio Cuccurin, one of 10 richest Croats by Forbes, Tomislav Antunović, “King of the Oil” and respected social and TV commentators Marija Selak, Višnja Starešina, Leon Košavić – young opera singer from Ozalj who debuted at the Royal Opera in London and others.
The greatest specialty of the conference lies in the innovative approach of the lecturer’s work with the participants, meaning practical, interactive and above all personal (looking to avoid excessive academy and to ask questions in a relaxed “American style” using open dialogue to the maximum).
This is feasible because the concept of the conference is based on the exclusive approach of 50 participants from all over Croatia in order to create an atmosphere of maximum trust, free flow of thoughts and conversations and unobstructed changes of information, and the application is preceded by a resume and pre-selection process.
The organizer of the project guarantees lectures that do not talk about things that books say they should be, but what they really are. Examples of real life, opportunities to discuss their own projects, and insight into the ability to finance and invest. The importance of lobbying, positive thinking, the rule of law (and what to do if it does not work?). Inspiration. Education. Brand-nation.
Petar Ćurić, a culture manager, initiator and project manager of the ‘Branding of Croatia in the World’ is a returnee from England and winner of a lot of prizes and awards.
