Raphael: Learning and testing new techniques and extracting insights from data.
Ivan: Seeing how our business and social network grows.
Raphael: Staying curios looking at things from various points of view. Be it the analysis and interpretation of data, reading a history book, tasting fine wine or … there are so many interesting things.
Ivan: There are many … ;-) Three of them: (1) Do only things you are fully committed to; (2) Be brave and take decisions that might not seem obvious; (3) Be always present (“the present moment is all we have…”)

Ivan: Having clear principles and values and living in line with those.
Raphael: A happy customer - a new insight - a tasteful menu including wine - it depends.
