Oleksandr Zayoma

Lecturer of public speaking and speechwriting


For the past 17 years, Alexander has been working in the field of education. He started by teaching English, but now he doesn’t explain the difference between present perfect and past simple anymore.

For the past 13 years, Alexander has been helping people make their speeches, presentations, and communication more enjoyable and beneficial, both for speakers and listeners.

He works with the best Ukrainian and international companies, and three of the top five companies in almost any industry are his clients: DTEK, AJAX, McDonald’s, Fozzy Group, Kernel, TEVA, Roche, Deloitte, PWC, Baker McKenzie, Philip Morris, JTI, Luxoft, Global Logic, Ciklum, MacPaw, Readdle, Vodafone, Raiffeisen Bank, Credit Agricole, and others.



Alexander believes that learning should be fun and that there should be many good speeches. He is a certified English teacher (CELTA) and has a Master’s degree in Economics from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and a Master’s degree in Psychology from the Institute of Postgraduate Education at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

In today’s world, communication and presentation skills are what define our professionalism. Achieving goals in business meetings, negotiations, presentations, as well as career growth, largely depend on mastering these skills. Let’s agree that it is much easier to build trust, persuade, “sell” your idea, motivate or inspire if you are a good conversationalist and speaker. This course is an opportunity to better understand what happens to us when we speak and how to use verbal and non-verbal communication tools to make it useful and enjoyable for both the speaker and the listener.
