Ana Benje

At heart, Ana is a curious explorer of human behaviour. She moved from Slovenia to Slovakia a decade ago, where she finished her Master’s degree in political science and continued her studies as a junior researcher at Comenius University in Bratislava. In her (still pending) doctoral research, Ana experimented with visuals and projective techniques to figure out how exposure to the EU flag makes us think about our homelands. Being part of two European cultures created a new dimension of looking at her home & host countries, but also a new way of perceiving Europe and cultures around the globe. In the course of her career, Ana worked for NGOs, multinational & local companies, agencies, and in academia. She is passionate about value-based internal & external marketing, behavioural economics, consumer psychology, design, and photography.

Katie Verest

When Katie started studying philosophy, she wanted to explore a broad field of topics fitted to her even broader interests, but she never expected that her educational path would lead her to the business world. Developing interests in sustainability, the importance of diversity and equality, she decided to pursue a degree in business ethics. She graduated in Philosophy of Management and Organization at the University of Amsterdam. Her search for an organization that focused on sustainable, social and human issues led her to Innate Motion.

She’s an optimist by heart and always tries to focus on what connects people instead of what divides them. She tries to find this universal human connecting through travel, both in person and through literature.
