Zdenka Havrlikova is the founder of AVITEUM and a never-ending believer that we can make a change and impact lives of our communities if we truly believe in our dreams. Zdenka holds a master’s degree in education and business economics & management. She studied in the Czech Republic, Germany and Russia. Over past twelve years she worked across non-profit, private as well as public sectors. She was active as a project designer & manager, coach, education expert, trainer, researcher and evaluator. She has been involved in more than 30 international as well as local projects that seeked to solve challenges in our societies and built an extensive network of cooperating institutions globally. The recent experience which shaped her vision to establish AVITEUM as a catalyst for change and growth was her four-months stay in the U.S. She was selected to participate in a global leadership program supported by the U.S. Department of State and gained a valuable experience as a business counselor for women and minorities. AVITEUM connects uniqueness of individuality and free spirit (“avis” means “bird” in latin) with sense of community and its importance (“avitium” meaning “birds collectively”). Zdenka created AVITEUM to support purpose-driven organisations (NGOs, education institutions, impact companies, start-ups, public organisations) as well as individuals to leverage the impact of their visions.

During our meetings, which took place over half a year, Zdenka helped me not only to become more aware of my potential but also, she inspired me to create strategies for achieving goals in a more systematic manner. Her vast experience in project management and organizational development was also very useful.“
