About Me

Jana Štefánková is a well-known Czech presenter, a successful entrepreneur on the real estate market, specialising in exotic Indian Ocean destinations. She is also a prominent personality in the field of Dining Etiquette and Business Etiquette. At the same time, she holds the respected office of Honorary Consul of the Republic of Seychelles in the Czech Republic.

Jana Štefánková already started building her career at high school when she began working as a model. In 1994, she left to study English at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, where she first encountered a course on Dining Etiquette and promised herself that she would create a similar project in the Czech Republic.

After a year in the US, she moved to the Seychelles Islands, where she began to acquire in-depth knowledge of the local environment. There she collaborated with the organising committee of the Miss World contest which was held in the Seychelles in 1997 and 1998. She gained valuable experience in the organisation of this very important social event. At the same time, she worked for the Consulate of the Republic of Seychelles, where she learnt the rules of diplomatic protocol, amongst other things. She travelled the world for several years during this work and personally participated in prestigious social events.

In 1999, she briefly returned to the Czech Republic where she won a challenging audition to present a successful television talk show, broadcast by TV Nova. As moderator of social events and press conferences, she takes advantage of her experience of working in front of a camera, the art of communicating with people and the language skills gained during her stays abroad. She previously also worked with the Jordan F1 team and, thanks to this collaboration, again travelled the world to attend top social events.

In 2009 she passed the State final examination at the Institute of Hospitality Management in Prague, obtaining the title of Ing. At the same time, she began to devote herself more to real estate activities in connection with the unique residential projects recently created in the Seychelles and Mauritius. She continues to present prestigious social and sporting events, professional congresses and press conferences in the Czech and English language.

By the establishment of Bling-Bling company, Jana puts all her entrepreneurial interests under one umbrella. To this project, she contributes the know-how supported by many years' experience in the media, social and diplomatic spheres, as well as knowledge gained at university and experience gained during more than 20 years of activities in the Indian Ocean region.

On 5th July 2016, Jana Štefánková was officially appointed by the President of Seychelles, James Alix Michel, to the very prestigious office of Honorary Consul of the Republic of Seychelles in the Czech Republic.
