What do my clients share?
They found a solution to their business challenges by improving their intercultural skills and the international exposure of their teams.
I engaged Kristina when the CEO of a charity working across Eastern Europe & Central Asia asked me to provide insights into the social, cultural and workplace beliefs and practices across the region. Kristina's input made a significant difference: not only did she tailor her advice to my sector of palliative care, but she understood the challenges an outsider would face and provided practical guidance and support to overcome them.

Our goal was to help staff at Greenpeace to develop their writing and presentation skills, with a focus on producing sharp and effective press releases. Thus, from the preparation stages through to the post-workshop feedback, Kristina’s grasp of intercultural communication, her admirable sense of tact and her rigorous professionalism ensured that any linguistic, cultural and logistical challenges were easily surmounted. In the session itself, her deft moderating and insightful contributions allowed both myself and the clients to get the most out of the workshop.

Kristina helped me to bridge the corporate cultures between the offices of my company that was initially opened in the USA. When opening a new office, I immediately noticed how different the business cultures were between the two communities (globally and in America). Kristina conducted 3 workshop sessions for the whole team: it wasn’t at all about the language usage; it was all about the cultural nuances and difficulties that we went through in a very practical and interactive exercise for a group of several dozen people. She also helped our HR to better formulate the job descriptions for the new positions we had been opening, considering the cultural peculiarities of the American and global markets respectively.

When preparing for negotiations with our Turkish partner, Kristina proved to be a great professional in this matter. I had never really approached the negotiation process from an intercultural side point of view, and I am very grateful to Kristina for showing me how it should be done. Now I plan to contact her every time before starting negotiations with foreign counterparties in order to meet my desired result.

At the same time as being a high-level professional, Kristina possesses qualities that are rare today: she is punctual and business-oriented, tolerant and ethical. Kristina helped me to interact with my foreign partners from different countries, explained the peculiarities of their culture and approach to doing business, which helped me to achieve the desired results from negotiations and other business communications goals I had set.
Natalie, Israel
Kristina helped me to prepare for the Web Summit in the shortest possible time. By the time I made the decision to go, I did not have a clear strategy or meeting program. Together we prepared the starting pitches, worked out how to start communication correctly, and practiced small talk. I greatly improved all the scenarios of dialogs with potential clients in business English, I felt more confident. Due to the fact that Kristina had already had experience in preparing Web Summit participants, she was aware of the context of the event and offered relevant tips and skills. When I arrived at the conference, I had a clear understanding of how to behave, what to say and how to say it, and how to follow up in a written format after the event.
