Engaging, Interactive & Informative Approach Which Your Audience Will Love

The most important element in a successful meeting is having the right speaker or moderator! If you are looking for a keynote speaker, a workshop facilitator, a moderator of a session, a public presenter who can inspire and motivate your audience together with providing plenty of information and practical examples, you have come to the right place!

I can certainly do this upon your request: both on the spot, or online!

I often speak on trendy topics, related to arts, culture and creative industries, such as:

  • Strategic management
  • Start-up of a creative enterprise
  • International entrepreneurship
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Fundraising and financing
  • Marketing and audience engagement
  • International networking and collaboration
  • Cultural policy
  • Local cultural development
  • and much more…

My presentation and moderation is:


Meets your needs, participants expectations, and the goal of your event


Offers challenging questions and opens up new opportunities


Creates an inspirational and motivational ambience


Sharing short examples from my international experiences and happy life in coaching, moderating and public presentations


Involves the audience by interactive methods of communication


Offers a combination of diverse cultural practices, research findings and theoretical discourses

Near to cultural practises

Sharing innovative examples from different corners of the world


Engages the participants interested in the subject matter regardless of their professional affiliation and background

Let’s Collaborate!

I am regularly invited as a keynote speaker and presenter at various international events. I also moderate workshop sessions, panel discussions, group brainstorming, research talks and Board retreats.

If you feel that my competence and approach would be a good fit for your event:


Reach me via email


Please feel free to share basic details about your event such as name, scope, time, location and other key logistics, as well as your expectations of me as a speaker or moderator.


We can then discuss on the phone (skype, viber or other communication tools) your specific needs, the opportunity to speak at your event, or to moderate your session (online or offline). This is a chance to discuss in more details what your needs are, what the profile of your audience or your team is, and how my competence and approach would fit.
