Regionalni Benelux

Regional Benelux

For a few years now, there has been an idea about merging and integrating great companies in the region so they can compete on the bigger market, and on the global scene. Until now, the idea has not come to fruition. The integration of players on the market happened through acquisitions and expansions. At a recent meeting, a well-known Serbian businessman sent a message to key Croatian companies, saying it is time for another shot. Are regional companies, as well as the market, mature enough for serious international mergers? Who benefits from this approach, and who does not? Can integration even be avoided if one wants to be competitive with global players? What is the role of politics in the process? All of the questions related to the new economic integration will be answered by key people involved in the most interesting business process in the region.

Politički dos & don’ts

Political Dos & Don’ts

In its relatively short history, Croatia has had 12 governments, but none of them have changed the form of communication, whether they were the “left” or the “right” option. Both the former and the current ministers communicate only when it suits them, choosing media, as well as journalists, and their spokespersons are usually just “shield bearers” for their bosses.

Can telecommunication be an impetus for the development of new services and products?

Stvaramo li medijske i komunikacijske glupane?

Are we creating media and communications fools?

Although the number of college educated people continuously growing, media and communications market is replete with young people with a great desire to work, but without any practical experience. The crisis has affected to the explosion of the number of personnel, but also has shaked the number of work places and, in addition to experience, profiled quality education as a key factor for rising above the mediocrity. What kind of media and communications professionals are created today on our colleges? Is there a difference between state and private colleges?
