  • The information that Volodymyr presented during his training has proved to be useful in my everyday work.  Time planning instruments, prioritizing, setting correct aims and tasks to your employees, constructive feedback, authority delegation; - this is not even the full list of topics that Volodymyr has covered during the short time. Volodymyr convinced us that it is possible to juggle it all, on his own example confirmed the effectiveness of time planning –that’s how you can successfully fit in your life busy work schedule, effective team management and achievements in sport. Everything’s possible but only if you want it very much and put a lot of effort in it!

    Iryna Sydorovych, Manager at Rixos-Prykarpattya
  • During the MBA program we had a positive experience in having Volodymyr as our expert in leadership, time-management and communication system in the company. During the course of three days the program participants experienced a lot of positive emotions and were offered many excellent ideas to apply in the chosen field. I’m very grateful to Volodymyr for his professionalism, openness and ingenuity.  We are looking forward to our collaboration in future projects of business school.

    Mykola Savulyak, Head of Business Community Club ( www.bc-club.org.ua)
  • The main benefit that this course from Volodymyr Semenyshyn gave me is the defining of my life goals and realization that you have to transform your dreams into aims and work hard for their realization. Once you have developed time management skills and various communication methods, you can easily cope with all tasks that come your way. I’m grateful to the trainer for stimulating my desire for significant changes in my life.

    Olga Mudryk, Manager at Evryka
  • I’ve visited Volodymyr’s training on methods of authority delegation to your subordinates and successful time management of your working hours. I liked the way Volodymyr gave the training very much, he involved all participants to take an active part in it. “You cannot be a passive listener” – he stressed. I find this attitude to life very attractive. After the training course I recommended it to my friends and acquaintances.

    Olga Bren, Director of Lviv insurance company “Kraina”
  • I was lucky to work with Volodymyr on a few projects on the development and expansion of marketing strategy of a company. I remember this collaboration as a very positive experience. Volodymyr is a very reliable person, responsible and with an impeccable timing. On top of that, he is very optimistic, has a lot of innovative ideas and the ability to quickly understand all work details of a certain enterprise. It was a great experience to work with him, to implement new ambitious projects and achieve predictable results. I hope I’ll have the opportunity to work with the expert of such level again.

  • I have visited Volodymyr’s training on time management. It could be noticed that Volodymyr besides having good theoretical knowledge, was speaking from his own experience. He presented the information in a very interesting way and people who took part in the training listened to him with great pleasure. I have noted down some tips and started implementing them. We are considering our future collaboration.

  • MBA module that Volodymyr presented was very interesting and useful – he was talking about things that can help in your everyday life and business. I highly recommend everyone to visit his training. I’d be more than happy to visit Volodymyr’s next trainings.

    Andrii Buchynskyy, Manager at Zahidspezservis
  • The notion of time management is individual to every person and there isn’t one general method that everybody could use. What I liked most from the training – is the list of not exactly instructions but useful tips that people can apply to their needs, adjust them to their way of life, current situation. Volodymyr can teach you how to prioritize correctly, plan and organize your time, find time for a hobby, sport and interests not to the detriment of the quality of your work.  What I have found the most useful is the variety of real practical things that people of all professions can use in their job and everyday life.

  • I got acquainted with Volodymyr during my studying in the MBA program. He is one of the best teachers- trainers that I had the luck to work with. The studying is great fun and yields results. During the training you don’t fall asleep but obtain very valuable knowledge.

    Petro Krynytskyy, Entrepreneur
  • I have visited Volodymyr’s training as a part of MBA educational course. His module was the most memorable to me because it was full of creative games and practical stories from life. I have attended this course on personal effectiveness organized by Business Community Club for two times and each time I gained some new ideas for myself which I tried to implement right away. Many of these ideas I use even now, for instance, how to use your e-mail effectively, how to use social networks, how to devote more time for sport and I have even started writing with a pencil J. I can recommend Volodymyr, a positive and successful person, to everyone!

He deserves the highest praise. I got a lot of positive energy from this communication. It was noticeable that trainer knows his job, which is very important, and is willing not only to share his experience but to get feedback from the audience.

  • I was lucky to talk to Volodymyr and learn from him during the course of 2 trainings. He possesses the quality of being a talented trainer - to my mind, that is what makes him radically different from other trainers. Volodymyr is a remarkable example of a person who is practicing manager and shares not theory but practice. He has professionalism of a manager and qualities of a leader, charisma, positive thinking and excellent presentation skills. Volodymyr demonstrated on his own example how different tips work in reality. I give 10 points out 10 for quality and practical value of his trainings.

    Valentyn Harchenko, Manager at Sanofi Aventis
  • Volodymyr's knowledge and experience - are lucky findings for our company. The main principles of his teaching are clarity, explicitness and ability to transmit his knowledge easily, also taking non-standard decisions and creative approaches to problem solving. He gave useful pieces of advice, taught how to prioritize correctly. You can feel trainer’s professionalism and charisma. The secret of his success are self-discipline and personal example. I am sure that our mutual collaboration will facilitate strengthening and further growth of our company. The bundle of knowledge and useful advice obtained during our communication with Volodymyr I am all set to use to the maximum effect.
