MEET OUR TEAM
Renata is originally from Croatia and was raised in Germany where she completed her education and graduated in Economics. In addition to her MA in Economics Renata holds an MBA from the Chicago Booth Graduate School of Business. After having worked for big multinational companies in Germany, Russia and Belgium she decided to come the Czech Republic to set-up her own HR consultancy business. In 2009 she gave her career a new orientation and founded GoldLife Services together with Lucie and Alena. Being a mother herself - Renata has a girl aged 15 and a boy aged 13 - she recognized the challenge for professionally involved parents of the international community in Prague to keep their children occupied with English instructed sports activities after school and during the long holiday periods. The idea for GoldLife Services was to provide for the children a place where they feel safe and at ease meeting their peers, having fun and plenty of activities supervised by professional instructors. In 2015 Renata established the GoldLife Sports Club fully dedicated to sports activities for children also on competitive levels. Renata is a level III certified gymnastics trainer by the Czech Gymnastics Federation (Gymfed).
Lucie graduated from the University of Economics in Prague, with focus on Regional Economics and Business Studies. Already during her studies, she started her working career in the area of consulting services, project management and EU funds. After several years of experience in grant management and EU financial instruments, Lucie together with Renata and Alena founded Goldlife Services s.r.o. Her knowledge and experience with project and financial management Lucie is now applying within the company, where she is responsible for all financial management. Also being a mother of two girls in the age of 9 and 7 years, she realizes how important is to spent time with sport activities especially for the kids and to develop their physical skills and overall good health condition. Being the daughter of a Czech Diplomat Lucie is also very familiar with expatriate life and the needs of foreigners to a country where the language is not the only hurdle to take.

They are intended to increase body strength, body fitness, and flexibility, through movements such as pulling or pushing oneself up, bending, jumping, or swinging, using only one's body weight for resistance; usually conducted in concert with stretches.
