    In 1977, he started his career at VIDEOTON as simple product developer. During this time he has gained a lot of experience in management skills, from the way of product development, to the communication both internally and externally. Several practices used at big state owned company were just not acceptable for him, but he was not aware of what the right way would be at that time, he only knew that he would never adapt those practices.

    Moving to the private sector he has gathered several new way of solutions, which were simple and nothing to do with the practices used at his former company. He can tell it was a good development for him.

    Moving forward he joined to the world of multinational companies, where the level of soft skills played a much bigger role. With this experience he could make better motivation for his subordinates, and they could have better company results.

    The world of multies is not homogenic, there are numerous differences, and it is the company culture that makes the most significant and most dominant differences. Some good examples will be shown during the presentation.
