The hidden talent pool – why you should consider coming back from maternity leave and pursue career goals at a time and pace that suit you.


Employers desperately need talent and are prepared to give a level of flexibility to reliable, experienced, educated and well organized individuals – and many women on maternity leave fit the description.

Life, actually

Born in Bulgaria, mother of a 9 year old girl, fond of languages, culture and art, an international career in wine and spirits took me from Sofia to Moscow, Stockholm and London and brought me to Prague 6 months ago to head the local business of Pernod Ricard including the iconic Czech brand Becherovka.

Why do you consider your participation at the event "Ženy sobě" and the women´s support to be important?

There is still a striking prevalence of male middle and top management. Women need a little support to build self confidence and unlock their career potential.

What do you think when you hear : You can buy everything for money !?

That you should dream more, or love, or both.
