10th SheXO Club
In the Footsteps of Science and Lasers
Eli Beamlines Laser Centre
Did you know that a scientific facility outside Prague houses the most powerful laser in the world that could bring the water in the Lipno Dam to the boil in 10 seconds? The amount of steel used in its construction was the same as that used in the construction of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. This time, the SheXO Club rode the technological wave, organising the anniversary 10th SheXO Club session at the Eli Beamlines laser centre in Dolní Břežany. During the tour, the ladies took a peek into the research hall and, using virtual reality glasses, tried out what the other possibilities of using lasers are. They got completely carried away by the lecture given by the successful scientist Kateřina Falk, who explained the concept of lasers as well as her work in astrophysics. Her fresh and entertaining approach proved that science is in no way a boring thing. The event was rounded off by a raffle and by handing over a cheque to the Deputy Mayor of Dolní Břežany, consisting of financial contributions from individual ladies. Thank you!

Ladies attending the 9th meeting of the SheXO Club had a unique opportunity to watch the sunset on the roof of the Lucerna Palace and enjoy a view of Prague spires. The main reason why the meeting took place in the Lucerna cinema was to screen the stories recorded as part of Deloitte’s project entitled “Making an Impact that Matters”. The ladies met with one of the project participants, the aristocrat Constantin Kinský. Along with his wife, he talked about his participation in the project as well as about the chateau in Žďár nad Sázavou where he and his wife managed to interconnect history, art and modern technology in a fascinating way. They were then welcomed and accommodated in an attic apartment by the well-known Prague coffee bar owner Ondřej Kobza.
The SheXO Club cooperates with the Sisters of Mercy of St. Borromeo Hospital in Prague. In the first project, the ladies helped the Detoxification Centre for Children and Youth in this hospital, where they prepared afternoon leisure activities for the hospitalised children on weekends. The children also enjoyed the ladies’ hand-made cakes.

Five interiors for five modern families, furnished by five Czech architects precisely in line with their current situations and interests. Would you like to live in an apartment like that? For now, you can take a look at five of them; just as the ladies did as part of the 8th edition of the SheXO Club when they visited the Squat id23 project at Pařížská Street, where they admired interesting interior solutions and designer features selected with care so as to match the concept of each interior.

Tomáš Šebek, a surgeon who cooperates with Doctors Without Borders, told the ladies in a very engaging manner about his work and experience from missions in Afghanistan and Haiti. The sixth SheXO Club took place in a coffee shop where refreshments were provided by people with mild disabilities.

At the fifth SheXO Club meeting, the ladies were personally received by John Mucha in the neoclassical villa at Hradčanské náměstí, which was built by his grandfather Alfons Mucha. He showed them veritable historical gems from his family’s collection and presented them with a book with Alfons Mucha’s illustrations, complete with John’s personal dedication.

This time the ladies were treated by the British Embassy in Prague and Her Excellency the Ambassador Jan Thompson. While the ladies were getting acquainted with the impressive rooms of the Residence, they were accompanied by Jan’s two exquisite cats, as the ambassador had left for a dress rehearsal at the Kolowrat Theatre. She starred in the performance of Much Ado about Nothing with the Prague Shakespeare Company.

At the following meeting of the SheXO club, the ladies met the young talented musician Sebastian Kitzberger, a student at the glass studio of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design, who was able not only to exhibit his work at the premises on Rohanské nábřeží in Karlín as part of the SheXO klub, but also had an opportunity to gain invaluable knowledge about the business environment.
“Our aim is to connect successful ladies from the business environment who are interested in what happens around us. The SheXO Club takes pride in values that enrich everyone. We strive to do things that contribute to a better society.”
