Mgr. Roman Žákovský
“I have attended enough workshops and pieces of training with external consultants to understand people’s aversion to good sounding rules repeated many times over. My way is to practice a “no bullshit” philosophy where everything I advise needs to be practical, immediately usable, precisely focused on achieving set goals and without any unnecessary clutter that would be just wasting the time of both sides.”
Business Mentor & Consultant
After my studies in the USA, Spain and finishing my master’s in law in the Czech Republic, I have spent more than 3 years as a lawyer in the international law firm Allen & Overy. I focused on the advisory in the international capital markets and derivative transactions.
I liked the business side much more than the law and decided to leave for the job in the UK in the London office of Czech company LASVIT. I have quickly moved up through the ranks to become the Managing Director for UK & West Africa. Apart from the UK I have grown the business in Nigeria and did secondments in LASVIT offices in Dubai and Singapore.
After almost 7 years in London, I came back to Prague to help companies with their international expansion, business development, and internal & external communication.
I am very interested in new technologies and since 2017 I have invested in different software and hardware building companies.
Apart from VDS Training & Development, I am also a trainer and business mentor at ImpactHub, CzechCrunch Shine, and Femme Palette.
