For several years I have been working on information systems design and served as a „translator“ between the contracting party and the creator / architect formulating the information needs of an organization. I move along the border of two different worlds even now when I help to interpret and converge the views of firms and universities in their cooperation on applied ICT research and making use of its results on the market.
In recent years I have been mainly working on international research projects and on networking innovators within organizing the TEDx conferences. I help start-ups with their business plans and foreigners in creative professions through the Brno Expat Centre. I like to collaborate on projects with international reach and with people who do not do their job just for money.
Information is my stock and data and knowledge my material – particularly about the use of technology in business, education and organizing. I am doing my best in discovering the trends and viewing your goals in the context of relations and the environments where you work and live.
I can understand your processes, data and organizational structures. Seeing an opportunity and a need for new services in time helped me to start the number of projects – the rise of e-commerce in the 1990’s, networking entrepreneurs with investors 10 years later or supporting highly qualified foreigners in the city most recently.
I like to connect people and organizations from different backgrounds – businesses and university faculties, entrepreneurs and investors, innovators of diverse professions at TEDx, foreigners and locals or online and offline activities within marketing strategies.
I write, lecture, consult and coach – these are all just forms of communication and mutual learning. Over the last 10 years I have helped dozens of companies with their business plans (mainly in the ICT sector). I learned the most from my partners and clients.
Over the past 15 years I have managed over 10 long-term projects (some of them international) and led the curation and organization of more than a hundred seminars, conferences, discussion tables and informal meetings.
I do not consider myself a specialist. I look at solving problems in context instead. The devil is in the detail. I do notice it.
My thematic focus could be summarized more formally as follows:
- Information and communication technologies with a focus on internet and digital content
- Strategies for innovative business, start-up coaching and mentoring
- Models of cooperation between companies and universities
- Funding of research and development with a focus on venture capital and EU Framework Programmes
- Conference dramaturgy and creating environment for networking professionals across disciplines
- International cooperation, relations development with foreign partners
- Helping highly skilled foreigners who want to settle in the region
- Integration of internet and social networks into marketing strategy
- Unconventional forms of education
I am not too good at drawing and maybe that’s why I am so fascinated by photography. As a single-lens reflex camera lover I fall under the charm of the time standing still in pictures. And as an enthusiastic amateur I am passionate about the white sport on courts. I can’t sing, but I am fond of dry red wine, kind and smart women and unobtrusive music (my Deezer).
