Amalia Sterescu

I strongly believe that a leader has a vison in front of him/her and a team behind him/her, we cannot speak about leadership without one or the other. It is precisely action that makes a leader credible. Vision without action is just a delusion or wishful thinking! A genuine leader manages through his power of personal example, boldly tackles new ways, challenges the status quo, takes risks, and innovates where others have not even dared to dream. What I have just mentioned are just a few of the leadership lessons that I acquired in the 25 years of experience as a senior leader in corporations with a global footprint or as an entrepreneur in education. I’ve trained as a leader at the school of first multinationals that were entering Eastern European market after 1990, year after year I added complexity to my management roles in areas such as customer service, sales support, tele sales, telemarketing. As an intrapreneur I participated in 11 internal start-ups, I developed from scratch support services centers in Romania, China or India and I ran a business of $2B USD as Vice President within Oracle EMEA Support.. On this journey I developed strategies for success, I grew up local and international teams of leaders and the transition to senior leadership evolved naturally. Today, as the leader of my own business I am continuously learning that leadership in entrepreneurship is like an exam I take every day for the satisfaction of my customers! I create, customize, and facilitate unique development programs for international teams of leaders in various industries! Over the past years I developed unique programs like Charismatic Leadership, Digital Leadership, First time as manager, Strategic Networking, Mindful leadership – in this way I give back what I acquired in my experience to a wide range of over 100 strategic customers from various industries. As Public Speaking Coach and Founder of Public Speaking School I have personally taught over 2500 professionals in public speaking (team training or 1:1 coaching). I have developed the Amalia Sterescu method of public speaking through programs like Mastering Public Speaking or Speak to Inspire. I extended the training programs to pupils/students, to prepare them to become better leaders and better communicators. Today Public Speaking School is a landmark in education when it comes to training in this field. As Certified Personal Branding Strategist I personalized my own training program for top talents and I supported professionals from various industries in their process of accelerating their career or business start-up through personal branding. As Author I have published over 700 articles, my first book ”Dancing Tango with Life” was published in 2015, I write also on my Career Transformers Newsletter on LinkedIN. As Volunteer in Education I am Board Member for Romanian Gifted School, founder of #GiveBackRomania where we offer career counselling for hgh school students, also I have trained over 100 teachers from public schools in public speaking.

Nicole Guberman

I am the Founder & CEO of True Self Love™ Mindset & Transformational Coaching. After 20 years in opera performance, over 15 years in private vocal instruction, and over 10 years of hands-on experience in the coaching industry, I formalized my coaching company in early 2020. I am a mission-driven personal and professional development coach, board-certified alternative healing arts practitioner (NLP, hypnosis, TIME TechniquesTM, success coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique), and voice specialist. As a Self-Love Sorceress, I liberate corporate professionals, business owners, coaches, consultants, speakers, leaders, and healers into fearless, confident speakers, on the stage, screen, and anywhere in between. This means that I help people get assertive in their voice so that they can speak up, be seen, and celebrated in their workplaces, win promotions, better communicate with their partners, succeed in their relationships, and own deep self-confidence. As a result of working with me, clients transform their self-belief, they know how to speak up, their actual physical voice and presence is stronger so that they’re not just overlooked in a room, they know when and how to show up in a meeting, perform with poise and assurance in public presentations, and speak openly and authentically with their partner. I offer a variety of options for coaching, from 1:1 work, BreakThrough Sessions, or my group program. I also provide a complimentary Discovery Session, which is a consultation to help me learn more about your current situation, to determine how I can best serve you, and to discuss where you want to go in your personal and professional transformation. After we have discussed your current problem, and upon my decision to invite you into one of my coaching packages, we will work together in sessions to draw from your strengths, clarify actionable steps for solving problems, and create achievable outcomes. You will take risks as a presenter and communicator and live outside your comfort zone while being supported every step of the way. By working to understand the core of your anxiety, shame, hesitation, self-criticism, or self-doubt, we will collaborate on meaningful solutions that will free you from your fears. Ultimately, you will gain the skills to continue your journey with success long after our collaboration. I invite you to learn more about my work at and on LinkedIn:
