I love that often we have to react to a given situation and make the best decision in a matter of moments.” –

In the following interview, we will learn about the jobs Gerusz had before his years as an event manager, what he likes to do most in his daily life, and what his favorite moments at ConceptFlow are.

What jobs have you had in your career so far?

In previous years, I’ve had the opportunity to work in various roles. I’ve tried my hand as a supervisor at a software development company, at an art school, as a dancer on a Norwegian cruise ship, as a dance teacher, and as an event manager.

What finally drew you into the world of event management?

Mainly the variety that comes with every project. No two events are the same; each requires comprehensive preparation in different ways. I’d also include the ad hoc nature of it, where the activities envisioned at the office often work differently on-site due to external circumstances, requiring solutions to be found on the spot during the event.

What is your favourite thing to do when you are not working?

In my free time, I teach dance from absolute beginners to competitive levels. Besides that, I always have new hobbies, mainly sports, that I like to try. A few years ago I got hooked on CrossFit, which has been a part of my everyday life ever since. I also have an interest in extreme sports, especially since I retired from active competition. I find it easier to take up old and new pursuits like skateboarding, motorcycling, or rock climbing.

What’s the next destination on your bucket list?

I’ve been thinking about trying surfing for a while now, and I’ve found some really good opportunities off the coast of Portugal and the Azores.

What’s your favorite part of event management?

Mainly the fieldwork, ensuring the events run smoothly on-site, and closely following the events first hand. I love that often we have to react to a given situation and make the best decision in a matter of moments, without the participants noticing anything.

You’ve mentioned this variety and unpredictability several times. How do you adapt to the new developments in the field, and how do you always come up with something new?

I try to stay up-to-date, follow new trends, and keep an eye on the work of both domestic and international agencies. Thanks to social media algorithms, I often find this kind of information without even having to search for it. Additionally, I have more distant inspirations as well. I keep my eyes open, I take my work with me wherever I go, so I can draw ideas from a variety of things and incorporate what I see into my work.

What are you proud of?

I feel a sense of satisfaction every time one of our events ends successfully and we receive positive feedback from the client.

What kind of events do you like the most?


I don’t have a preferred type of event. Every new project carries its own unique challenge, whether it’s an educational roadshow or a company team-building event.

What are your favourite company moments?

At the end of the autumn-winter rush, after successfully managing our last Christmas event, it feels great to sit down with the team and have our own Christmas dinner and team-building event.

What do you think is the most important skill you need for event management?

I can’t pick just one thing because, in my experience, it’s such a complex position. Precise, thorough work is as important and essential as creativity, openness or proactivity.
