There are people who one can trust fully, enjoy working with, share experiences and have fun with – even if they have never met before. There are thousands of miles between Li, based in the US and myself, living in Ukraine (out of all, other 30+ countries I lived and worked!). We have different backgrounds, sung different songs and believed in different leaders. However, surprisingly, we share the same values, beliefs, like, that being honest is the natural foundation of any relationship, delivering value to our customers is of paramount importance, and many others, which make us what we are. Li gave herself her word to work only with delightful people and she keeps that word by having in her wonderful speaking boutique only bright, kind and sparkling personalities. Being a management development consultant, university professor, trainer, speaker, and educational events facilitator, I found similarities with Li’s approach to people she works with, and gave myself my own word too, to work only with people I like and admire, and not to work with someone whose values I do not share, no matter how profitable it may be. Li has chosen on many occasions to work with me and that is an honour, and proof that I am a bit delightful to work with, too! Li naturally and gracefully sets up high standards to the speaking industry. She is a wonderful example for all of us to follow!
