A few words on my central banking track record.

  • I advise central banks across Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia, and Africa on making their policies more transparent and on modernising their communications.

  • The list of countries where I have provided on-site advice (continuously updated, in alphabetical order): Armenia, Botswana, Georgia, Ghana, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Malawi, Mongolia, Morocco, Mozambique, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Zambia.

  • Between 2009 and 2015, I served as Director of Communication and later took on a wider portfolio including communication as Head of General Secretariat and Secretary to the Board at the Czech National Bank

  • In 2009-2014, I was a member of a professional information- and experience-sharing working group of communication chiefs from EU central banks within the so-called European System of Central Banks.

  • During my tenure, the Czech central bank upgraded its policy communications and brought its transparency and communication toolkit into line with global best practices. This helped solidify its standing as one of the world's most transparent and best communicating central banks.

  • My initiatives to find new ways of speaking to the public, among others creating a blog for policy-makers, won international recognition. For 2015, the CNB received the Transparency Award from the Central Banking Publications.
