[HOT7] Dennis Gurnick

After a while I continue with the Hot7 posts dedicated to special people in my life. This post is entirely in English since I didn’t want to translate Dennis’ answers to preserve the juice in them.

Dennis Gurnick is definitely a remarkable man, a master of sarcasm. At a very young age he left Canada and after episodes as a student, developer and consultant in USA and Belgium love brought him to Slovenia. Having worked with Intera he’s now a freelance developer and consultant with high entreprenurial aspirations. Dennis Gurnick

We “met” on Twitter at the time of the last Olympics when I was extremely amused about curling (and curling catches attention of every Canadian). After some chatter we kinda started do stuff together; only some of what was started was also actually finished. The greatest pending stuff of all is TheCrappr, a place to vent and flush your frustrations. We also got a first angel investor – his mother bought the domain.

But what actually was done are two Android apps where Dennis did all the bits (and I did the pixels) – Moj Tehnik and The Blamr. The first is a cute app that was made for Mobitel’s Android competition – you can read the Tehnik blog, check out your mobile consumption, find info about Mobitel’s support and download other Android apps. The Blamr was done during one night immediately after we submitted Moj tehnik to the competition. With The Blamr you can take a photo and then paste on it another photo of let’s say your friend from a gallery or contacts and so blame your friend for what happened on that photo. App still needs some love and will keep you posted about updates.

Dennis is ultimately the author of the single best quote I ever heard from a developer: “I was told to wait. But the curiosity brought the best out of me.” – and delivered a working prototype for Space invaders for Android although the client hadn’t given out anything but the idea. Respect.

Hot7: Jernej Remi Filipčič

Jernej je po izobrazbi astrofizik, sicer pa odličen fotograf, eden boljših retušerjev, kar jih poznam in podjetnik/inovator. Njegov trenutni veliki projekt je Spacebed. Ideja je super in rešuje velik problem – postelja, ki jo čez dan lahko dvigneš pod strop in tako prihraniš veliko prostora. Postelja je kakopak zelo primerna za vse ljudi, ki imajo težave s prostorom v svoji hiši ali stanovanju. Kadar Jernej govori o Spacebedu, mu je v očeh videti žar, ki bi naj bi ga imel vsak podjetnik, ko samo pomisli na svojo kreacijo. Strast do kreacije je definitivno eden od faktorjev za uspeh.

Z Jernejem sva se sicer že precej pogovarjala o sodelovanju na področju poslovne fotografije, vendar do tega trenutka nama še ni uspelo priti skupaj. Je pravi primorec s primorskim smislom za humor. Kul tip. Ve, kaj dela. Ima karizmo in zna prepričati. Zna nastopati. Obvlada komunikacijo z nežnejšim spolom. Posebej všeč mi je njegov nasvet za uspešen networking: kadar si na eventu, kjer so (pomembni) ljudje, ki jih želiš spoznati, samo poišči najlepšo žensko v prostoru in se druži z njo…everyone else will follow.

Hot7: Barbara Rijavec

Na blogu uvajam novo kategorijo, Hot7, sedem vročih vprašanj o poslu, iejah, smislu življenja, o tem, kaj se splača prebrati, ogledati in narediti. Na vprašanja bodo vsak ponedeljek odgovarjali ljudje, ki jih cenim, ki jih je vredno imeti ob sebi in ki so v poslu že marsikaj naredili.

Barbara Rijavec

Je mlada in zagnana finančna analitičarka, projektna managerka in podjetnica to-be. Diplomantka Gea College, kjer dela tudi magisterij. Spoznala sva se na eni od podjetniških delavnic, kasneje pa sva poslovno sodelovala pri postavitvi spletne strani za Taxgroup.

Takrat se je izkazala kot trda pogajalka, vedno pa je poslovno igrala zelo fair. Ima veliko znanja s področja podjetniških financ, kar dokazuje, da jo je po Taxgroupu za vrednotenje neke družbe najel eden od Big4, nazadnje pa se jo je dalo videti vstopiti v Publikum, kjer trenutno dela kot finančna anlitičarka pri vrednotenju družb, v katere Publikum vlaga.

Barbara že pri rosnih 25 veliko ve o financah, projektnem managementu in poslu nasploh, vendar se pri tem ne ustavlja, saj stalno vlaga vase in se izobražuje. Ko pa združiš njeno znanje in proaktivnost, dobiš tapravo mašino, ki se ne ustavi :) Nadaljuj z branjem Hot7: Barbara Rijavec
