Today we had a chat with Disa Dizdarević. Disa returns to LEAP Summit year after year and we decided to check if it’s because Zagreb is so close to her home country Slovenia or she finds something about LEAP special enough to come back every spring.
Why did you decide to travel to Zagreb just to be at LEAP Summit, even though you haven’t heard about the conference before?
The event caught my attention right from the start when I received your first email. The whole concept of LEAP Summit was well prepared and I said to myself: “I definitely have to be there”. I think that in our busy crazy world, we often forget the importance of being in a live face-to-face setting with other change-makers.
Did LEAP Summit meet your expectations?
I wouldn’t say it met my expectations, I would rather say it exceeded my expectations.
What would you say are the main benefits of events like LEAP Summit?
First and foremost, you hear plenty of amazing ideas and interesting stories from extraordinary people in just three days. If I sum up 4 main benefits: educational opportunities, business opportunities, meeting new people from all around the world and having fun.
Did LEAP Summit change something about the way you see business, entrepreneurship and/or international cooperation?
It showed me that business should be considered from a broader point of view. You could really see how some people developed great business opportunities from their hobbies (esports, etc).
What makes you come back to LEAP Summit year after year?
LEAP Summit is not just an event, it’s more like community … and you want to be part of it. <3
