I have been passionate about innovation and agile management since my studies at the University of Economics in Prague where I also took a side specialization in Lean Management and Six Sigma. I got my first working experience in a family business focusing on automotive and international trade. However when I got an opportunity to be a part of the launch of Czech branch of an Italian broker company Directa – first online broker in Europe, I did not hesitate. It allowed me to fit my long-term experience with exchange trading into business practice. After that I dived into helping and developing startups with primary focus on algorithmic trading and exchange data processing. At the same time I launched collaboration as a consultant, public speaker and investment strategist with a fintech platform called Financial Progress Group. As an Innovation Designer in Direct People I can tap into this experience. I enjoy being a part of the future success of today’s companies and helping them create products and services of tomorrow.
