Going to the Top

Hungarians are the only ones capable of entering a revolving door last and coming out first, the great Billy Wilder once said. Well, it’s not that Hungarian Prof. Monika Hamori plays tricks on you in an attempt to come first, it’s just that it’s inevitable. Once you begin to talk with Prof. Hamori, she will be so full of knowledge and because of that, the only option is to let her go first, if you see what I mean.

When I first spoke with the pilot of the helicopter, I sensed that he was a bit skeptical about who this Professor was and what he business was being in and talking around in his helicopter. But, you guessed it, in the end, it turned out that he and Monika ended up getting along just fine. In fact, they ended up firing questions at each other to resolve issues facing CEOs. Have a look.

She teaches human resources but also has a master’s in Hungarian literature and linguistics. “Few academics combine Hamori’s appetite for “proper” research with such interesting, behaviour-changing conclusions, says Thinker50. And she is among the world’s 40 best business school professors under the age of 40, adds Poets & Quants.
