Invitation for the Young – a Lecture Entitled “Path to Success”

The Slovenian Business Club and the Youth Slovenian Business Club kindly invite you to attend the lecture entitled “Path to Success” which will be taking place on Wednesday, 18th March 2015, at 5 p.m., at the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana (the Grey Lecture Hall).

The lecture will be given by Marjan Batagelj, the chairman of the board of the company Postojnska jama, the CEO of the company Batagel & Co., and the president of the Slovenian Business Club.

Marjan Batagelj is a serial entrepreneur with the philosophy that you can succeed anywhere just as long as you stay true to your principles. His first successes came from marketing vacuum cleaners with water filters and these also represent the beginning of his own trademark. He founded the company Batagel & Co. in 1990 and after only a couple of years he led it to the very top of the vacuuming appliances dealers, while the trademark itself became the synonym for water vacuum cleaners. With the collected capital he later ventured into construction and invested in real estate, while in 2010 he decided to try a new challenge and took over the leading of the Postojna Cave. Until 2028, he also gained the management of the Predjama Castle.

His vision is clear. The improved comprehensive offer is to keep the tourists from all over the world in Postojna longer than the present average of four hours. He wants to restore the glory and the former international reputation of the Postojna Cave, this tourist pearl, while recalling to the consciousness of all Slovenians the awareness and pride that it is us who have here something so unique and world famous; in doing this he is extremely successful.

The lecture will be followed by casual conversation.

You are kindly invited!
