Hana started TLC, a foreign language translation agency, in 2007 after owning and operating a similar business in her hometown of Prague, Czech Republic, where she earned her master’s degree in translation from Charles University. Being a professional translator and interpreter by background, Hana worked mostly as a high-level conference interpreter in Europe, also becoming one of the first Czechs to be certified for work with the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium, and the European Court of Justice in Strasbourg, France.
Hana’s first business operated in an environment of high demand for the services created by the fall of the Berlin Wall and an influx of Western commerce. “It was great but taught me absolutely nothing about business”, she says. With TLC, Hana focuses completely on running the business, rather than working in it, and is a self-described life-long student of everything business.
Hana also sees herself as a cheerleader for her employees, working on creating a culture with happy people. She points out that only happy employees can make the company’s customers happy, too. Hana loves what she does so much that if she wins the lottery tomorrow (unlikely, since she never remembers to buy a ticket), she promises to still be at her desk the next day.
Women business owners have spent a fortune on trainings, seminars, and masterclasses, with the aim of using the acquired knowledge to grow their businesses but unfortunately, very few of these workshops actually enlighten them on the challenges they are going to face in the business world and how to overcome them. This new book Women in Business ~ Leading the Way is designed to fill that gap in training and knowledge. The book will feature conversations with successful women business leaders that have achieved success, offering some insight on how they beat the odds, overcame obstacles and barriers. The extremely valuable and realistic business insight will be shared from those who have succeed, offering suggestions on how to; manage a business including career transitions and challenges, balance business and personal life, and how to reach out for support and get help sooner rather than later; and much more. Get true-life stories, real experiences tested ideas, tried and genuine business solutions so you too can Lead the Way.
Hana has extensive experience both as a translator and linguist and, through trial and error, also as a business owner on two continents. Translation is her passion. She is dedicated to developing the best of the translation industry, spreading the news of the benefits translation brings to the public and business sector and the beauty of foreign languages and mutual understanding in general.
