SEED Business Leadership Program has been a real eye opener for me in terms of how many leadership tools I can have in my toolkit and how to use them intentionally. It was a great realization how simple things can change the game and lead the organization to an enhanced performance.


Berislav Gaso

Executive Vice President E&P
• MOL •

SEED means a great experience, good people in the team, great networking opportunity, and a point in time when you realize that you never stop learning in life.


Dóra Draskovits

Employee Services Manager
• WizzAir •

The Business Leadership Program brought my attention to how to become a more effective leader, how to lead my team instead of being pushed down by the operative things in everyday job. It also showed me how to drive a business, how to give inspiration to others, so they can achieve their goals.


Karol Jakubek

• MOL Česká republika •

Great venue with a comprehensive leadership principles overview, focusing strongly on a practical side of leadership. I really enjoyed the teamwork during the training and I can strongly recommend the program to those, who would like to move their leadership skills to upper level. One of the best workshops, which I have ever experienced.


András Becsei

SEED’s Business Leadership Program was a very good executive educational program for me. What I gained from SEED and what it means for me is how to set aspirational goals, and how to build a team to achieve these goals.


Davit Mamulaishvili

Head of Revenue Development
• Wizz Air Group •

SEED Leadership program was a great and enjoyable experience. In addition to meeting very interesting and talented young leaders of the region, I enjoyed the depth and quality of the training provided. It was a pleasure to meet guest presenters and learn about their valuable life and career experiences. Furthermore, the coaching and mentorship sessions provided by the program are motivating and instructive. Very well done!


Gábor Heiszmann

• CIB Bank •

One thing I loved about this course that we were able to meet people – both presenters and participants – who has a waste experience in their industries. I can mention the President of Vodafone, the CEO and founder of WizzAir. Furthermore, I was in the same working group with the Senior Vice President of MOL from whom I could learn a lot. I would recommend this course to any executive leader who is humble enough to open up and has the willingness to look inside and understand what his weaknesses and areas of development are.

SEED means inspiration to me because here we meet a lot of nice and intelligent people, full of inspiration, full of aspirations and it’s really filling me with positive energy. SEED is positive energy.


Marijan Mrkonjić

Director of Asset and Services Management
• INA – Industrija nafte •

The SEED program gave me clear structure of my leadership role and showed me how to develop myself to be able to fulfil all the requirements of that role. This is a very practical and useful program that I can recommend to all that are interested in leading and developing their businesses and their people.


Martina Martinić

Head of Group Trading Operations
• MOL Group Hungary •

I am absolutely thrilled with the program. You start from aspiration and values, continue with building the story around people and, at the end, you tackle with your final goal – how to drive the business. Mentoring and coaching techniques during the program are refreshing and using these techniques after the program suit you with the most useful tool – how to learn continuously and efficiently. For me this is the key takeaway.


Predrag Vasic

Head of IT & Procurement
• OTP Srbija •

SEED is one of the best things that happened to me during the last several years. It gave me new vision and the energy to try to become a better leader than currently I am.

SEED was a very good opportunity to structure my thinking and have a good overview about business processes not only focusing strictly on business sense purposes but also the human side.
