"GMP was an excellent opportunity for some of Coca-Cola HBC senior managers to further enrich their business knowledge. What they found most beneficial was getting informed about best in class practices from other companies, networking and sharing experiences with peers from different industries and also many great lecturers. On top of that, organisation of the event was on a high level and in a truly beautiful and peaceful surrounding." (Danijela Tomić, Serbia)
