“I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Vitalia and receiving her insightful coaching as we have worked together in various Toastmaster Events. She has also been instrumental in helping me steer through (and learn) about the maze of requirements necessary to enter the Professional Speaker Circuit. Vitalia is what I call the “Triple Treat.” She has excellent Leadership skills, is a knowledgeable and dynamic professional speaker, and is an excellent success coach. Additionally, her PowerTalk Seminars and SpeakerBiz Institute Training are also the quickest way to make immediate and substantial improvements to your business, career, and life. It doesn’t get much better than that!”

She is always thoroughly prepared, professional and polished yet infuses each of her presentations with an enthusiasm that is highly motivating. She speaks with a sparkle in her eye that says, “I believe in you.” After attending her presentations I want to do more and be more. She gives audience not only the steps to take but also helps build their belief that they have the ability to actually take those steps to maximize their potential and achieve their goals.”
