What Our Customers Are Saying
“Prior to working with Pres Vasilev, I had competed for seven and a half years in public speaking competitions, trying to achieve my dream of making it to the Finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking. I was met with frustration and not being able to break through.
All that changed when I started to work with Pres. He not only was extremely easy to work with, but he also helped me craft a story and a message that not only resonated with who I was but with a universal audience as well.
I’m happy to say that by working with Pres, I finally reached the Finals. Being on that world stage was one of the most exhilarating and satisfying experiences of my life. It has allowed me to open up my brand-new business and public speaking company, my influence with my peers has increased, and I even landed my very first TEDx Talk.
If you’re looking for a storytelling expert, I highly recommend that you call Pres Vasilev.”
“I was honored and terrified when a friend asked me to officiate his wedding. I had absolutely no experience with that!
After I wrote the first draft of the Marriage Address for the ceremony, Pres Vasilev worked with me to polish the script. When I emailed the final version to the bride, she replied: “This is absolutely beautiful. It far exceeded my expectations. I really like that you wove our story in. I love the sentiment and the humor. I just need to read your Marriage Address enough more times so I don’t cry during it.”
Then Pres worked with me to perfect my delivery of the marriage ceremony. He gave me many practical strategies for different situations – the microphone fails, the sun glares off of my script (the wedding was outside), the wind blows the pages of my script, etc.
The wedding went swimmingly. I confidently handled all the curves in the road. After the ceremony, before I even had time to leave the lectern, the bride’s uncle came up, shook my hand, and gave me a hug. He said he rarely tears up, but he loved the ceremony and couldn’t help tearing up. I got many compliments, and I had a wonderful time.
