Ari Rämö

Ari Rämö Arvostavilla kohtaamisilla tulosta

Ari Rämö has been the long-time director of a number of organisations of various sizes. He is also ablog writer, a lecturer and a reflective thinker who has succeeded in putting his theory aboutleadership into practice. The company he is leading, named SICK Oy, is listed on the Best WorkplaceList in Finland.

Over the past ten years, the Great Place to Work evaluation placed the company asfollows in its own series: 1-1- 1-3- 2-2- 3-4- 2-3. The central theme of Ari’s leadership philosophy is invaluing people regardless of situation because leadership is so often made out to be unnecessarilycomplicated—and even by its frame of reference, mathematical. At its best, however, leadership isboth very simple and highly productive. This kind of thinking opens up whenever Ari takes the floor.


Ana Roš

Ana Roš My life story

The accidental chef who put Slovenian cuisine on the mapCooking was never the intended path for Ana Roš – especially not in the eyes ofher father, a doctor, and her mother, a journalist from a family of diplomats. Buther work and studies towards diplomacy came to an abrupt end when she methusband Valter and decided to take over his parents’ restaurant in Slovenia’sremote Soča Valley. She took on the kitchen at Hiša Franko with no culinary training, no experience inrunning a restaurant and no real desire to give up her ambitious career plans.

Almost 20 years later, she has put her country on the gastronomic map, starred inher own episode of Netflix’s hit series Chef’s Table, and been voted by her peers as The World’s Best Female Chef. Although there are no Michelin stars in Slovenia and the country is somewhatovershadowed by the culinary successes of its neighbours – Italy and Austria, inparticular – Roš has propelled Hiša Franko onto the global gastronomic stage andearned her place among the world’s top cooks.

The cosy family restaurant, locatedin an idyllic rural setting overlooking the lush Soča Valley itself, now attractscustomers from across the globe to sample Roš’s unique five- and nine-coursetasting menus. She follows in the footsteps of Dominique Crenn, Hélène Darroze and Anne-SophiePic as The World’s Best Female Chef and says she’ll use the award to change theperception of her tiny country’s culinary status. There seems little doubt she willsucceed.
