Veronika Gulášová

She graduated in marketing management and worked in PR agency Seesame during her studies. Since 2012 she co-organized the biggest Slovak music festival Pohoda, where she took care of partners and fundraising. In 2017 she moved to the management of the event agency PS:Events. But soon after, she became a member of the Progressive Slovakia movement and her career changed its direction. In the community she met Zuzana Čaputová and as the chief of her presidential campaign she subsequently helped this liberal candidate to win the presidential election in March 2019 in the mostly conservative Slovakia.

The new president says about Veronika: "She's a very handy, precise young woman with endless energy that has driven the whole team." At the Summit, Veronika will share her unique experience from the presidential campaign. She will talk about what it is like to lead a truly authentic campaign. She had to face repeated questions about when her candidate would give up. “One of the anti-campaigns claimed that Zuzana Čaputová was a marketing product, a product of large media agencies. But when Zuzana started to appear in debates, she had the chance to introduce herself properly," said Veronika for Deník N.
