I am very happy for the award. In 2019, the world was still normal. I greatly appreciate all of the marketers and publicists, who have to cope with everyday changes; immediately inform clients, partners and employees within the framework of crisis communication. During a crisis, fair and open communication is the most important. The year 2020 is different in all directions for all of us.
I thank my great team very much. This prize is yours, because in fact, you are the best, and without you, I would be standing under the stage and applauding for the others: Milan Šmíd, Aneta Uhlíková, Kamil Chalupa, Andrea Březovičová, David Pertl. Matěj Dusbaba, Barbora Perglová and others…I greatly appreciate your work!
