I like to be & do

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.

Following

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.

Analyzing & Discovering

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.

Connecting

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.

Communicating & Teaching

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.

Organizing

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).
