founder of the “Public Speaking School of Irina Palko,” co-founder of the “Board” business community
“Public Speaking School of Irina Palko” is a school headquartered in Dnipro that helps clients learn to express themselves clearly, be convincing, and present competently at any level. “My business started with the fact that I could not speak clearly during speeches. I know what fear and anxiety are, I know what it is like when you are shaken, beaten, and you need to defend a project that the whole team has been working on. And as I went through this journey to gain these skills, I realized that it was purely a practice, training. And I moved from the sphere of finance to education. I realized that I want to share this with people to help them.” In the 12 years of its existence, the school has had its ups and downs due to crises, but this pandemic is unique. “As a percentage of quarantine, our financial turnover fell by 70% in the first two weeks. But thanks to going online, we are gradually gaining momentum and repaying our customers.” Reputation is the most valuable thing you want to preserve in times of uncertainty. First of all, I need to maintain my reputation. Since the whole school is built on a personal brand, we always refund if the client wants to. No matter how difficult it is on our part. Reputation is more important.
