Fermier Invitat
Vreau în primul rând să vă mulțumesc pentru invitația acordată și să vă felicit pentru organizarea Forumului, una foarte bine structurată, atât în baza invitaților, cât și a subiectelor abordate. A fost o zi plină de acumulare de informații, sperăm noi folositoare, iar când ne-au permis pauzele am profitat pe partea de networking cunoscând alți colegi din țară și povestind unii altora cu ce ne lovim în fermele noastre și ce putem îmbunătăți.

Dr. Cristian Radu Jecan

Medic Invitat ROHO

“Mulțumesc organizatorilor pentru conceptul și formatul evenimentului Convenția Română a Spitalelor ROHO 2017. A fost o onoare și în același timp o experiență remarcabilă să onorez invitația primită. Conferința a oferit un cadru de întâlnire ideal pentru membrii echipelor de management din spitalele românești, prin asigurarea unui cadru propice de schimbare a informațiilor, de împărtășire a problemelor întâlnite în cadrul procesului de management spitalicesc și mai important, a soluțiilor găsite. Participarea specialiștilor și a profesioniștilor din sănătate din alte țări europene în cadrul ROHO, mai ales a celor din zonele învecinate cu România, a asigurat o diseminare largă a unor proiecte și soluții specifice implementate de aceștia, care pot constitui un model și pentru țara noastră.”

Dr. Elisabeta Raț

Manager, Spitalul Municipal Carei, Satu Mare

Manager Invitat ROHO

”Vă mulțumesc pentru faptul că și în acest an m-ați onorat cu invitația de a participa la acest eveniment. Din prezentările Speakerilor din sănătate, de la noi și din străinătate, am observat că preocuparea deosebită pentru asigurarea calității actului medical și siguranța pacienților câștigă tot mai mult teren în managementul spitalelor publice și private. Cred că, în activitatea zilnică din unitățile sanitare, protocoalele terapeutice și procedurile de lucru implementate, definesc bune practici de eliminare a riscurilor clinice, combaterea infecțiilor asociate asistenței medicale și nu în ultimul rând, o abordare corectă și eficientă a diagnosticării și a tratamentului pacienților.”

Petru Șușca

Reunind profesioniști din domeniul medical, evenimentul devine un prilej de a împărtăși experiență, dar și o ocazie de a interacționa cu oameni cu preocupări similare. Am apreciat alegerea atentă a speakerilor. Cunoștințele acestora sunt de un real folos în munca zilnică și pentru rezolvarea unora dintre problemele cu care ne confruntăm. Calific ediția din 2016 a Convenției Române a Spitalelor drept un eveniment constructiv și de calitate.”

Medic Invitat ROHO

”Vă mulțumesc pentru invitatia la ROHO 2017 și mă bucur că am avut prilejul să particip și să ascult profesioniști din managementul medical, atât din România, cât și din străinătate. Consider că un asemenea eveniment pune România pe hartă, ca țară europeană, care oferă servicii de sănătate populației, la standarde de înaltă calitate. Este extrem de important schimbul de experiență și de viziune la nivel de management, pe care îl oferă un eveniment de acest tip, și nu în ultimul rând, posibilitatea de a cunoaște persoane-cheie din acest domeniu și de a lega relații profesionale de durată. Am apreciat în mod deosebit oportunitatea de a crește vizibilitatea sistemului medical privat în fața guvernanților, atât pe plan național, cât și internațional, prin promovarea unor organizații cum ar fi European Union of Private Hospitals (EUHP).”

Guest Farmer

First and foremost, I want to thank you for your invitation and to congratulate you on the organization of the Forum, which was very well structured, both in terms of the guests, as well as of the topics addressed. It was a day full of – we hope – useful information; when the breaks allowed it, we made the most of the networking part to become acquainted with other Romanian colleagues and to talk about the problems in our farms and what could be improved.

Ciprian Dogaru

Executive Manager, Hotel Ambient 4*, Brașov

FORO Guest

The quality of the services must be continuously improved, and this is done through regular trainings and last-minute information shared with the relevant departments. Maintenance of hotel spaces is also a priority, as good hotel services cannot compensate for unattended space and vice versa. A mix between the two components is ideal and leads to the success of the customer relationship. A hotel’s reputation is its business card. In the online environment, the grades given by the guests are the mirror of the activity of the hotel, and they can be improved by good management and communication with the client.

Bogdan Arsene

General Manager, Best Western Stil Hotel 4*, Bucharest

FORO Guest

The policy of the Best Western Stil hotel has a very important component of customer service. We care about our guests and are very attentive to the feedback they send us through various forms (directly at the hotel reception, in direct meetings with our staff, through the hotel feedback forms, through the pages of TripAdvisor, Booking, Facebook etc.). Feedback from our guests helps us to maintain the level of services and facilities we offer to a certain standard and to make improvements. In the last 2 years we have made significant investments in this regard.

Chef Ștefan Popescu

Executive Chef, Pullman Bucharest World Trade Center

FORO Guest 

A restaurant is itself a complex investment. One of the current problems in this field is the quality of services, which is why it is imperative to invest in this direction. A restaurant can remain “top” only by maintaining quality – that is why this concept must be understood in detail. Competition is growing in all sectors and the best way to distinguish yourself from others is the reputation you build. The decision to use reputation as a career building tool differs from one sector to another and depends on the professional objective. However, being a professional with visibility becomes an increasingly necessary means of career development.
