From the moment I stumbled into this industry 16 years ago, I realized it was an interesting one. I liked sailing and boats, I guess. But once I started doing ICE, only then I discovered the people. The people... They're the really interesting part. In the years of ICE I've gotten to know people from around the world; it enriched my life and my view of this industry. Running ICE together with my amazing young team is as rewarding as a job can ever be.
Communication with suppliers gave me an accurate perception of how well connected the entire yacht charter industry is. Negotiating, doing business in such a relaxed atmosphere and watching our clients enjoy it, is year by year wind in our sails to be better and remain authentic.
While working on ICE I realized how important is to create healthy and positive working environment through all of your projects. Positive atmosphere is crucial "in those stressful and late working hours in the office"! This way the whole team is well motivated, focused and gives the best they can.
Being part of the ICE team gave me an insight into the importance of B2B events in the yachting charter industry. Our expo gathers a respectful number of professionals and it's a great pleasure to work with them and give them the opportunity to present their companies.
Working with this team while being involved with the 'sister' project ICEmarket, a B2B yacht sales platform, I've discovered the true meaning of agile, one that goes beyond mere planning of a development but having this in-sync crew that is bursting with enthusiasm and ideas while also making this happen as they come!
