STA, 10 June 2022 - Aljaž Dobnikar, a software development engineer at Plume Design, and Matej Duraković, a talent acquisition partner at IBM Slovenija, were declared Top Potentials of the Year by AmCham Slovenia on Thursday evening.
Dobnikar and Duraković were selected among the five superfinalists in the 12th generation of the AmCham Young Professionals programme.
The other superfinalists were Diana Berte, a marketing & China relations specialist at Instrumentation Technologies, Marko Maučec, director of development and co-owner of Escapebox, and Tjaša Tomšič, chief operating officer at PDiVizija.
The winners were selected by their colleagues, a panel of experts and the audience present at the award ceremony on Thursday.
"The young are those who inspire us to want to be better and do more as a business community. This is why I believe the young platform is the best that AmCham can give, not only to Slovenia but also to Europe and worldwide," Ajša Vodnik, CEO of AmCham Slovenia, said.
The Top Potential of the Year awards is part of the Young Professionals Programme through which AmCham promotes and trains next generation business leaders.
Young leaders, aged 25 to 35, are suggested for the programme by their superiors. The programme features workshops, lectures, debates with business leaders, field visits and a weekend meeting, among other activities.
