About me

Tereza Horáčková

My daily bread is the administration, organization and calendar appointments across time zones, ensuring trips abroad, planning events, people management and office operations. Thanks to his organizational skills, reliability and flexibility, I believe that I will fulfill your every wish.

Experience

Since 2013, I am working with an American Internet start-up. I am responsible for the office operations of the Prague branch and care for its employees, recruitment and selection of candidates for interviews. I organize for the company various types of events – team meetings or team building, as well as company-wide staff meetings from 20 countries (last year I organized a summit for more than 100 people). I was working as a virtual assistant to company founder and CEO of NYC (this position is currently vacant). Administration and organizing my daily life and great passion. With the experience of work in the start-up I can do an order within the chaos.

After graduation, I have worked for almost five years at the Department of International Relations of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic. My task was to organize foreign trips (eg. airfare, accommodation, insurance, foreign exchange resources, agendas etc.), organize meetings and negotiations, various social events, visits of foreign delegations in the Czech Republic as well as to keep records of trips, post and invoices, to order translation and interpretation, and not least the daily administration.

Since 2009 I have administrated websites of several companies (eyewear wholesale, opticians or electronic cigarettes), which I have created using Webnode templates. For these websites I also run their Facebook profiles. I founded several blogs, which are regularly updated with WordPress. Since 2015 I have also managed e-shop with eyewear and I have created a corporate intranet website on the Google Sites platform. Samples of my work for inspection.

I have an excellent grasp of MS Office (Word, Excel, Power Point), G Suite – former Google Apps (Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Keep Hangouts or Sites), cloud storages, and tools for editing files or converting their formats. I can create infographics. I manage not only Facebook profiles, but also Twitter or LinkedIn. I have experience with applications like Trello or Redbooth for project management; Slack, Skype or Zoom for telecommunications and video communications; Toggle to manage and measure the time spent on projects; SurveyMonkey for creating questionnaires; MailChimp for email marketing (newsletters); Zapier for connecting web applications; Lever for management of job seekers and others. If necessary, I can learn to use any new software in a short time.

Education

I graduated from the College of Hospitality and Tourism in Podebrady, where I focused on the field of hospitality management and tourism services. During my studies I received the permission to perform the services of a tourist guide, so I am happy to advise you where to go on a trip, vacation or a corporate event.

After graduating, I graduated from the University of Business in Prague with a focus on tourism. During the study I have completed the course of Diversity Management, which focuses on the specifics of the clients of different nationalities and their behavior. If you are preparing for negotiations with foreign clients, do not hesitate to contact me. Given that I completed a course of Ethics Management, I can advise you how to behave properly.

I was always interested in studying foreign languages. At high school, I attended German and English classes. At the College, I added the basics of Spanish and when I was working in the Chamber of Deputies, I have started to learn French. To officially confirm my language skills, I passed the exams and received Zertifikat Deutsch in German and PET (Preliminary English Test) and then FCE (First Certificate in English) in English.

In 2016, I have focused on self-education in IT. I graduated from a HTML / CSS course organized by Czechitas, a nonprofit organization, whose goal is to educate and inspire girls and women in the IT world and build a community of girls interested in IT. I am so excited about this field so I would like to deepen my knowledge of programming in these languages. That is what I am focusing on now.

Perhaps you are thinking that a girl from the hotel school does not know much about accounting. Then you might have a bit of truth, but concerning organization and organization of various activities I’m a professional 🙂
