The regular part, or the learning curve (January to July) provides an opportunity for all participants to attend lectures and participate in discussions on key business topics with top/experienced managers from AmCham’s membership, to improve their soft skills by attending workshops run by professional trainers and coaches, to hear a motivational & inspiring stories from at least one successful person from outside business, to gain insight into the media world, to network at AmCham official events, to meet business first hand by visiting an AmCham member company, to take part in extracurricular activities – such as a team building exercise outside Belgrade, and to learn more about best U.S. business practices and values at an event with the U.S. Embassy. Participants receive points for attendance, assignments and projects.
The three pairs who perform best in semi-finals move on to the finals (October to January following year), where, mentored by AmCham Board members, they develop special projects provided by the CEOs/GMs of the companies which have delegated managers. Each pair thus works on a real company-specific project. The pair that completes the assignment most successfully is pronounced the AmChamps 2018 winner at the special event celebrating the end of the program.
