2015 AmCham Wings Award for Community Leader goes to David Šmejkal of Poradna při finanční tísni

David Šmejkal leads the Centre since its establishment seven years ago. Over this time, the Centre has become a highly recognized institution both among professionals and as well as wide public.

The general aim of David Šmejkal´s advisory services is to make people aware of responsibility over personal finances, teach the wide public how to avoid risks associated with indebtedness and promote responsible borrowing.  His team does so through professionally structured seminars, workshops, lectures which they adjust to each specific audience and its experience: schools, companies, social service providers, senior homes, unemployed.

The Financial Crisis Advisory Centre (Poradna pri financni tisni) is a Public Benefit Organization and a unique example of cooperation of the largest Czech financial institutions/banks on a non-profit platform. By providing a free-of-charge counselling to concrete individuals in personal financial/social crisis and/or difficult life situations, the Centre gives the concept of “corporate social responsibility” a very concrete content.

David Smejkal was nominated by representative´s of Česká spořitelna.
