One of the most valuable skill for carrier development is public speaking. it is almost impossible to become successful without good diction and accurate articulation. That's why I decided to improve my speaking skills with Linda. I am very satisfied with result obtained. During the education process (after almost one year and a half) I successfully passed job interview, got a promotion and became more confident in general. Linda's methods are various and interesting, one of the my favorites is using classic literature to master your intonations. Moreover Linda is very nice and we create good relationships. I recommend to everybody who wants to speak clearly and deliver its thought wisely.

Vadim, Milano, Italy
I started to have lessons with Linda at the beginning of 2021. My aim was just simply to improve my professional presentation skills. Little that I know that this lessons will give a kick-start for a big personal growth as well. In a nutshell, I gained a better posture during my presentations, my voice and breathing became unobstructed by muscle blocks and it gave me an enormous self-confidence! Moreover, I for a feedback about the presentation style and what type of message I was sending to the audience. Now, I present and perform with conciseness and ti gives. I will proceed my lessons Linda and keep on exercising at home. Thank you Linda!

Anastasia, Amsterdam, Nederlands
I turned to Linda because I was experiencing great difficulties during interviews when looking for a new job. In particular, I could not adequately assess my performance, I spoke without confidence, my thoughts were confused, I was very worried, and so on. All these symptoms increased incrementally, along with the number of rejections from possible employers. When Linda's ad caught my eye, I immediately realized that this was what I needed. After several consultations with Linda, we managed to significantly improve my presentation capabilities with the help of simple techniques, and she helped me understand the subconscious causes of these problems. I was able to start working on them. Subsequently, I successfully passed one of the following job interviews and got the desired job offer. All of which encouraged me to work further with her on my interpersonal and communication issues. Thank you very much!

Olga, Munich, Germany
As a person who has been working in the tech industry for the last seven years and is obliged to spend a lot of time on calls and online meetings, I have always been worried about how colleagues perceive me and my public speaking ability. After six months of studying with Linda, my fear of self-expression in front of a large number of people decreased, and a new sense of confidence in my speech helped me find a new job in a record six weeks instead of the previous six months. Many thanks to Linda for her support!

Elizabeth, New York, USA
I like classes with Linda, because everything she addresses is essentially, undiluted, and without unnecessary information. I appreciate her gentle approach for working with the rougher areas of my inner landscape, you might call it – Soul therapy.
Well, it seems that one may ask, "What can vocal lessons bring, except for a beautiful voice?"
There is greater confidence. I no longer present myself in the mode of a little girl. Rather, I find that now I sound and present myself as an adult woman. There is a new awareness of what I am saying and how I sound, especially in those situations that were once scary, or awkward.
The classes positively affected my work. I became more confident when talking to clients. The recordings of the online course became clearer, and it is easier for me to convey information, and easier to work on camera.

Alyona, Brussels, Belgium

Linda and I have been studying for probably more than a year. Initially, I had a desire to learn how to speak beautifully and not be afraid to speak in front of the team at work, or when giving interviews, or speak at various events without losing my place in the presentation. For many years I have had a terrible panic and fear of performing. Such that at that moment there was nothing in my head and I could only chatter on a piece of paper without taking my eyes off. At the same time, my head was pressed into my shoulders from excitement and my neck was simply absent.
Linda helped me to unearth the deep psychological aspects that contribute to my nervousness, and step by step we worked on them. What did we not do in class: we made bitter grimaces, did mouth exercises and breathed in various ways, sang, talked on various topics of interest to me. Linda is very responsible and professional in her approach to any problem or defect in speech. In addition to classroom work, there were regular homework assignments including practicing speeches on my own, and recording my video presentations. Together with Linda, we worked through the texts of my speeches and then analyzed the video recordings. I kept a lot of notes during classes and now, after several years, I still return to them and warmly remember Linda and follow her life on social networks with great interest.
Linda is a great teacher and friend! Easy, useful and effective communication lessons for life!

I recommend her! Linda is an excellent specialist, she facilitated my public speaking voice. I got rid of the fear of opening my mouth and talking, which helped establish stronger relationships at work and advance my career. Thank you very much, I love you, I miss you.

Catherine, Arnhem, Netherlands
I had problems with speech:
1) I often spoke too fast and my speech was often unintelligible
2) My voice production was plagued with a nasal twang. But after working with Linda for about a year, I was able to overcome this problem. Also, I managed to overcome other existing problems, my speech became balanced and clear, my voice was lower and more confident. I am grateful to Linda for her help and professional approach.

Igor, Munich, Germany
I turned to Linda with a request to remove the fear of public speaking, since at work I very often have to speak in public. For a long time I tried to find a specialist who would help me, but in vain, until I met Linda.
Linda is simply the best in her field! She not only puts a voice and works out your weak points, but also looks for the root cause. While we were working with Linda, I learned a lot about myself. I became more confident in myself, changed my attitude to many things and people, it became much easier for me to live. Linda also worked with my children and already during the first session, she immediately saw the problem and gave good advice. Linda is a nice person and it's easy to work with her! Highly recommend!

If you want to be a SUCCESSFUL PUBLIC SPEAKER, SPEAK IN A INTERVIEW and GET NEW JOB - SHOW YOUR EMOTIONS (speak from your heart as well as your mind).

Why do we pay attention to some people and not to others? Why do HR agents choose someone even if that person has less skill and experience than someone who is more clever? Important information can be conveyed in an email if you just want to share information.

People pay attention when a person exhibits some sort of emotional engagement during their speech, because audiences recognize when a speaker is alive with and enthusiastic about, their subject matter. Often when someone speaks without enthusiasm the speech seems flat and uninteresting because the speaker doesn't seem interested in the subject matter themselves. HR agents or managers will more often than not chose the nice, open, smiling, person who shows not only that they have done their research but who have some enthusiasm for the company where they wish to be hired. [The clever person who is emotionally cold doesn't show interest and other emotions].

I have visited more than 50 countries and have really paid attention to how people speak and express themselves because it's part of my work, and I can say: In the US, people show emotion and express themselves much more often than those in the rest of the world. It is my opinion that in general, people in the US have the highest emotional intellect: they are helpful, open, have a high degree of empathy; they can cry in front of other people or laugh out loud, and they are, more often than not, encouraging to others in the way they share their feelings. Because of this many more Americans exhibit the best qualities as public speakers. This is one of the reasons why the US film industry and other show business enterprises are some of the most successful in all the world.

That is why it's so important to develop your emotional intellect if you want to work in the US.

How do you start accessing your emotional life? The answer to his question is part of our training sessions. You and I together will explore the ways to authentically express your emotional life, bringing new meanings and qualities to your work, to career interviews and your public speaking presentations. I have developed special exercises that target various issues unique to each

TV interview

From fear to self-confidence

If we focus on public speaking and generally how people speak in a front of an audience (boss, colleagues or clients), there are 2 different groups of people who have fears to speak:

1. First group is a group of people who are afraid of speaking and they are shy because don't have enough practice. They can take private classes of Public speaking or try Toastmasters or any classes with a good instructor or a TV host. The more they practice the more self-confident they become.

2. Second group are people who have fears, low confidence and shame to speak and even if they took public speaking classes and worked with different instructors, they still feel a lot of stress in their muscles, they cannot breathe free enough and they forget what they want to say. To them Public speaking is like hell. Every time they speak in public they traumatize themselves more and more and it's sad, because usually these kinds of people are very smart and they have great positions in big companies, they just don't want to speak because they do not enjoy it. This group of people doesn't have any medical or psychiatric diagnosis and they don't need to work with speech problems in a clinic. Some of these people already tried different therapies and nothing help them. They just have some emotional problems (fear, shame, low confidence, too much control) when they speak and some small muscle problems (sweaty hands, stressed muscles, speaking too quickly, too fast).

I have a lot of experience as a TV host, actress, vocalist and a movie director. I grew up in an opera singer's family and I worked with both of those groups. Because I'm not a native English speaker I focus more on the second group.

With that experience and learning techniques on how to work with strong emotions, I created my own system "The Emotional Speech program: from fear to self-confidence" for the recovery of the second group of people.

My system is based on emotional and speech practical exercises. Exercises and techniques are different for every client. This is the main reason why I work with everyone individually. Clients should train themself at home with exercises that we practice together during our sessions and then later the client will be ready to start public speaking for his job and career with good feelings: self-confidence and calm.
