AmChamps Lecture by the President of AmCham

The AmChamps generation of 2017 received a lecture from Zoran Petrović, president of AmCham and head of Raiffeisen bank in Serbia.

Petrović illustrated his two-hour lecture with examples from his own work experience and the first challenges he encountered at the very beginning of his career. After that, he gave participants several important guidelines for further professional development, including mastering the work-life balance.

In addition, he spoke about Raiffeisen bank and its beginnings in Serbia, noting that in order to be successful in the market, it’s necessary to define a clear business vision and get out of one’s comfort zone. In the discussion that followed, AmChamps students and managers asked questions pertaining to the economic environment in Serbia and ways to improve business as well as on topical issues in the banking sector and the problem of loans in Swiss francs.

In the end, the speaker emphasized how proud he is of AmCham as an organization and everything it does for member companies and the greater business sector in the country.
