We are going to share success stories of some outstanding members of the Chamber Toastmasters Club. The first in a series is a story of Tatiana Lukinyuk. She has been with the Club since 2005. Tatiana is currently holding position of Marketing Director, SunInbev Ukraine, part of Anheuser-Busch Inbev.

“I joined Chamber Toastmasters back in 2005. My original intention was only to polish my presentation skills which I had to use quite often in my daily job. I won club speech contest with my ice-breaking speech and was totally motivated from the very beginning! I did my 10 projects from Competent Communicator manual in 6 month, and 2 advanced manuals in another 6 months to get my Advanced Communicator Bronze. It took me however next five years to achieve Advanced Communicator Gold – which means that I delivered over 40 speeches, 5 special projects & group trainings.
As I was persuaded by my fellow members to take upon more responsibilities and become club officer, I started to discover new aspects of being a Toastmaster – developing my leadership skills. As President of the club and twice VP Education, I practiced in safe environment my ability to organize and lead people, give and receive feedback, motivate and inspire. Such practice helped me to become a better manager in real life too! In six years of being a Toastmaster I built in parallel my career from brand manager with no reports to Director of Marketing managing a big team of people!
What’s most important – Toastmasters is an excellent opportunity to meet interesting people, network and have lots of fun! I am proud to actually call a lot of my fellow Toastmasters my friends.”  – Tatiana Lukinyuk
