Eva Maršálková – Project Manager

In this series of “Meet the team” we will introduce you to all our team members and experts, one by one. This is done by asking a standard set of questions, including the Question for the Future! This time we will introduce you to Eva Maršálková, a Project Manager working with Minkowski!


Why do you work with Minkowski?

We live in rapidly changing times and it’s important for organizations to adjust and contribute in a positive way so the discrepancy in the way people live will not become even greater. Minkowski’s mission, to give agency to individual people within organizations and change them from within is therefore a mission I fully embrace.


Question for the future: What is a lesson you had to learn the hard way in life?
When I was 17/18 I took the opportunity to play college tennis in the US on a full scholarship. I set it all up by myself and it felt like a great adventure. And it was. However, at 18, I underestimated the financial means I still needed (and had no way to get), how lonely I would feel at times (no regular contact with family and friends at home) and underestimated my physical preparation (leading to injury). This all unfolded during that year and I had to deal with it. It turned out to be one of the most valuable years of my life. I discovered:
  • to problem solve when things get rough,
  • that helping others can be a remedy,
  • what it means to really do your best.

It all resulted in the lesson my coach learned me and I still live by: “Who you are is what you do when nobody is watching.”


How do you make history by changing the future?

By having a conscious (and continuous) realization that every person has a story. This means: listen a bit longer and ask more, and preferably, to all kinds of people. You never know when someone else’s point of view or experience can add value or inspire new ideas.
