Lenka you have tons of experiences under your belt. Could you walk us through your CV?
Sure. My road to Information Technology didn’t go through informatics, I studied economy. However, I have always been a mathematics and data lover and have been drawn to the digital world since my early age. Beside my university studies, I started working in an IT company and also kicked off my first online business. Selling shoes and sunglasses earned me my first own car when I was 25.Read more “Lenka Hlinkova – LEAN IN Slovakia Director, Published Author and Algoritmus Co-Founder and CEO”
Žaneta, let’s start with your book “Manifest mladej ženy”: It is a fantastic book and has caused a stir on social media. Can you tell us bit more about it?
Thank you for describing it as fantastic! I am so grateful that the book has had such a positive response. Readers send me feedback and gratitude for writing such a book: many have told me they needed to read something like this.
Barbara, I looked at your Linkedin profile to find out more about you and your professional life. You have a very impressive resume! How have you managed to do so many fantastic things at such young age?
This is what I call the “Linkedin effect”! It looks great when you put all your life’s achievements together and write them down in one paragraph. However, breaking it down into years, crises, failures, good and bad decisions and doubts you experienced; it all looks less impressive.

Barbora, you have experienced a lot for your young age. Can you share with us your story and how you became a coach?

Lenka, you are the founder and a CEO of EMOTER (Essential Medical Outreach & Treatment Rescue): Can you tell us about your journey with this amazing initiative?
When I was in the fifth year of my studies at The Third Faculty of Medicine in Prague I wanted to do an internship in a developing country as I felt the experience could teach me a lot. Initially I did not know which country but a student from our school had gone to Uganda and had a very positive experience: She helped me set up an internship there for the summer.
