Hi, I’m Maryna
(a certified nerd in all things communication)
But what about YOU? You’re here to make an impact, right? To show what you’re made of. And to do that, you need to step out and shine. So let’s talk:
Let’s engage. You’re valuable and so is your message. So stop being dull.
Let’s respect your time. A good strategy is like a good message. Efficient and to the point.
Let’s get energized by fear. Fear is a bolt of energy, so never let it paralyze you again.
If that’s what you’re here for, let’s talk.
See how we can serve you with our programs on all things public speaking and engagement.

Happy New Year! Not only that, but Happy New Decade! Instead of my usual public speaking tip, I wanted to share what I’ll be doing today. Today I will be writing a letter dated January 1st, 2030 and it will be addressed to the Maryna of today. This is like backwards goal-setting or new year […]
I love this home stretch time of the year because it gets me excited for the new year and new beginnings. Although December always feels kind of rushed and busy, it makes January feel like a breath of fresh air. Speaking of new beginnings, two month ago our family welcomed a second little Viking!!! And […]
