Fabian Demicoli

60 seconds interview with Joan Haber – Alka Ceramics

 Why did you become an entrepreneur? I feel that entrepreneurship has always been in me and actually I was born in it as my family owned a business. I was also supported a lot and complemented by my husband. I have studied economics at university , which also pushed me towards my decision to become an entrepreneur.

How have you come to chose your line of business?

My husband is an artist and that is why I chose a line that is artistic as otherwise, if I hadn't met my husband I would have chosen to go into catering.

Where did you go on your last holiday?

In Italy, I went to the Castrocaro Terme. It was a very quiet holiday and I liked the place a lot, very unspoilt, with mountains and those type of things.

What is your earliest memory?

When I was two and a half my uncle passed away and I remember him dead at home surrounded with candles. That image impressed me a lot.

If you could chose to be someone famous who would you be?

I never thought about it. Don't think that I want to be anyone else although I'd love to have my son's witty sense of humour, my husband's artistic abilities, Vince Farrugia's business acumen the list goes on..nobody has it all. I'd say I'm quite content.
