Below is my first interview as Country Manager of Candy Hoover Turkey and I give the true basic explanation why I changed Company. Basically I say, I preferred very much to work in Istanbul than in Europe (Athens) and accepted the opportunity that Candy Hoover group offered. Also a very nice challenge … Türkiye’de %1,5 pazar payına sahip olduklarını ve bu rakamı %3-4’e çıkarmak istediklerini belirten Candy Hoover Eurosia Ev Gereçleri A.Ş. Ülke Müdürü Andrea Ojetti; “300 bayimiz var ve 1000 bayiye hitap etmeyi hedefliyoruz” diyor. Öncelikle kişisel... Read The Rest →
Finally I’m back in Istanbul and I’m in the mood to write on my blog again. The rule is that after 5 years of residence in a Country you put roots. All Companies say that, but I was hardly beleiving it before experiencing on myself. After over 7 years I was feeling so bad out of Istanbul and I am glad to have had the opportunity to come back. Now I feel like being back at home… This city is full of energy and its like as if being here... Read The Rest →

The jornalist asked me to write about the most important advise that affected my professional life. An advise from a boss or maybe from a professor. Of course at my age there are lots of things that in a way or another had an influence so at the beginning it was difficult to aswer.

I was offered Alexandria in Egypt, an... Read The Rest →

C’è il valore letterario tout court, ma sicuramente in molti casi c’è anche il valore documentale, relativo a come l’autore ha cercato di tracciare il proprio ritratto personale di certe situazioni ambientate in un’epoca particolare. Il valore documentale è sempre presente nel buon giornalismo. Più difficile è trovare del giornalismo che abbia un significativo valore letterario, specie al livello di quella prosa d’arte che...
