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.

He asked me: “What do I do if someone keeps interrupting my presentation to make their own point?” And at first, my thought was SO WHAT? A little audience interaction is a good thing. It means they’re engaged! Speakers […]
Q&A – “what if English is a barrier during presentations?” Thanks for that question. I do understand that as a newcomer, sometimes we make ourselves feel like there’s more at stake. However – if effective communication is important to you – then you HAVE TO put yourself out there. Here are a few tips to […]
