Alma Career SVP Vesa-Pekka Kirsi is giving the opening speech at one of the leading eastern European HR events, HR Days, next week in Rovinj. He will talk about the challenges in the modern leadership and finding balance between external demands and own internal limitations. During his hands-on leadership career in international corporations, companies and start-ups, Vesku has lead people and teams over three continents, 12 countries and multiple time zones. Over the years he has refined his own leadership style, approach and philosophy. His area of specialty is leading change and taking companies, teams and himself through the painful but necessary process of transformation. For Vesku, the decades have burnt away the glamour often linked with top leadership roles and left him with what he thinks is the core of leadership: leadership is a job in comparison to any other job that needs to be done, and it, like any other job, deserves to be done as well as possible.
