I am delighted that our WPP Campus will once again become a hub for young talent who have the ambition to do world-class creative work, the desire to win and to strive. I look forward to seeing the winning proposals and believe that they will provide many original and useful suggestions to non-profit organisations.

In 2020, Plzeňský Prazdroj received the most prominent award - Trendsetter - in the TOP Responsible Company by Business for Society chart for setting trends in the area of sustainability and for bringing inspiring new impulses for business responsibility in Czechia over the long term.

As Prazdoj, we have supported the event in the past and we will this year as well, because we are concerned with the development of not only our people but the entire industry.
For twenty-five years, I have worked in the management of companies operating at both poles of the media market: in media agencies and on the media side. I have experienced first-hand the problems and challenges faced by each entity and can look at them from an independent perspective. My ambition is to guide advertisers safely and knowledgeably through the labyrinth of the media market. I provide both long-term collaboration in media planning and buying, as well as ad hoc consultancy and media training. The above activities are my hobby and I prepare campaigns with as much care as if they were my own products or services.
I support The Young Lions Media Competition because the field of media planning and buying needs young talents who will be able to present clients with workable media strategies.
