Meet Alena. Communications strategist, speaker and trainer by profession and vocation. A globetrotter, sports enthusiast and an unshakable optimist, passionate about people, life and business.
Alena has a professional background in sales, marketing and communication in a variety of sectors including IT, travel and tourism, wellness and beauty. After more than 15 years working in corporate business and living in 5 different countries across Europe and Asia, she embarked on a quest to discover her mission. Diving into entrepreneurship, she develop an online portal to promote healthy living. Later she built a team of 50 sales consultants in the beauty sector and became a star salesperson.
After years of running her own business and working with literally hundreds of people, she came to a sad realisation that many smart and talented professionals never made it in their business. Mostly because they didn't know how to communicate in order to get people on their side and how to sell themselves and their big ideas.
That's what inspired her to start her communication business which has turned into lifelong passion.
Combining all her sales, marketing and public speaking experience with the study of human psychology and learning from her mentors and her own life journey, she developed a number of training programs focused on different communication skills and techniques.
Today she helps corporate leaders, entrepreneurs and startup founders develop a powerful and authentic personal presence and deliver presentations and business pitches that get results.
In collaboration with Presenation.com, Alena coached the Czech team X.GLU which became the world winner of Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017.
Alena is regularly asked to speak at industry events and conferences in the Czech Republic, Spain and France. She participates at The International Board of Entrepreneurs, Entreps.org, runs The Public Speakers, Trainers and Coaches Club in Prague and is an active member of Toastmasters International, regularly participating in public speaking contests. She coaches clients in English, Spanish and Czech.
Alena has an educational background in Business Administration and Languages, and is also trained in disciplines such as Emotional Intelligence, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Coaching & Mentoring, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Leadership, Negotiation, Online Marketing & Branding, The Enneagram and Instinctual Variants of the nine personality types. She is very proud to have been certified as an Enlightened Warrior and Guerrilla Marketeer!
And if you want a bit more
Who would have ever imagined that a shy, self-conscious, introverted young woman who was always more comfortable with books than people and rarely dare to speak up would go on to become an international trainer and passionate speaker travelling to conferences in different parts of the world? And after years of struggle to get people to listen to her she would start training hundreds of people on how to speak to inspire?
It's been a long and challenging journey
There was a time during my first entrepreneurship project that I was about to declare personal bankruptcy. I couldn't help but wonder why?! I had a strong professional background, skills and talents. Why couldn't I make it work? I knew something had to change, but I had no idea where to begin. Fortunately, as they say...
The teacher comes when the student is ready
And that's what happened. An inspiring mentor came into my life, a person who had everything I ever wanted and who turned my world upside down. I was obsessed with finding ways to get back on track and so I followed her advice. I became her shadow. I was determined to uncover the secrets of success in business. It took me considerable time and a lot of trial and error but I learnt the fundamental skills that helped me develop a large sales team, fall in love with sales and become great at it. Communication! Yes! I finally understood the tremendous power of communication and how...
Communication can literally make or break our lives
The subject of communication for success became my fascination ever since. I immersed myself in the study of communication and human psychology. I faced my fears and began to work on my public speaking skills. I invested thousands of Euros to study with some of the most brilliant minds around the globe including Brendon Burchard, Marie Forleo, T. Harv Eker and many others.
Today it is my mission…
To help people master the art of communication in order to get the results they want and deserve! I help people communicate with power to inspire and positively influence others in order to make things happen in the world! I truly believe that communication is the number one skill for success in all areas of our lives! If we learn to communicate better and share our vision and unique abilities with others, the world will be a better place for us all!
