what participants say...
"I have met Mirna during Leadership Summer School 2014. I had the opportunity to attend some of her training sessions and the privilege to interact with her personally. As a trainer, Mirna managed to pass on her knowledge and positivity through the different activities in a very zen environment. She is one of the reasons why I want to become a trainer. As a member of the LSS team, Mirna amazed me with her remarkable presence, her good mood and her smart interventions .
I am looking forward to work with her again and to lean from her, personally and professionally."

Participant at Youth Trainers Academy Porto
"Mirna was one of trainers at the Leadership Summer School 2012 and a leader of a reflection group where I was a participant. I attended several of her trainings. I must admit that it was one of the best trainings I have ever attended!
Mirna is a very enthusiastic person and she always shares her energy and passion with people who surrounds her! In a very limited time she can explain a complicated theory and demonstrate how this theory works in practice.
The event took place in July, almost a year ago, but I still remember every minute of her trainings. When official program was over, we had time to reflect on what we have learned and Mirna was our coordinator. She managed to unite five of us, people with different background and from different cultures. We ended up as best friends.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mirna who helped us to built up our friendship and who always showed us a way to improve ourselves.
I want to recommend Mirna as a very enthusiastic person and an outstanding trainer. I am looking forward to continue our cooperation!"

"Mirna was one of the trainer of Leadership Summer School 2012, a training event focused on Leadership and related topics.
I had the chance to attend several sessions with her and during that time she proved to be incredibly helpful, available for clarifications and knowledgeable.
She always had an efficient strategy in order to make everyone participate, learning and enjoining at the same time. I guess this is one of the results coming from the high motivation and passion that she reserve for all the activities and projects she deals with.
In addition, after the event she showed complete availability for follow-ups and valuable personal advice.
I really appreciate her analytic mindset which, mixed with her soft-skills and her positive attitude, make her a perfect trainer, workmate and friend; that's why I want to recommend her.
I hope I will have the chance to deal and work with her again soon."

"Participant to the Happiness Academy, I have been impressed again by the energy and warmth displayed by Mirna in her training. The in-depth research, planning and organisation behind it makes her and her work even more amazing. Mirna is indeed a very caring and reliable person, with high attention to her students/clients/trainees as well as the quality of her training."

"I met Mirna two years ago and as I listened to her talk about her travels, I was fascinated by her positive energy. I decided I had to meet her so I approached her and after that we became friends. I was a participant of the first round of Happiness Academy and I can say that it was amazing. First of all, Mirna is an amazing coach, motivated, smiling and full of energy. The course is well structured and I enjoyed learning new things. Also, the groups are small so we all became friends and felt safe and free discusing delicate and personal topics and challenges, finding comfort and support in the group. I warmly recommend it! :)"
Participant at Happiness Academy 20015
"I met Mirna in July 2013 during Leadership Summer School, Sofia. She was one of the coordinators of the event and a trainer.
In the opening ceremony, I heard Mirna's speech and I felt immediately inspired by her motivation, experience and mindset.
Mirna is a visionary person, always trying to find opportunities of self-development and to help people. She's really smart and generous as a trainer. She inspires people with her attitude, presence, personality and strength. She was one of the people that inspired to become a trainer. I had the privilege to be accepted and work with her during Youth Trainers Academy 2014, Krakow and once again, she guided me in a learning and self leadership process and thanks to her I developed a lot of skills and gained new knowledge and I feel much more confident now as a trainer."

"As a participant on LSS 2014, it was my second time to be able to participate in Mirna's workshops, and she was a great inspiration to me as a trainer-in-training!
She has an incredible bubble of happy energy, encouragement, and knowledge, as well as dedication to her trainees - she took time for each and every one of us and it meant a great deal.
I would love to work with her again, either as a participant or perhaps a co-trainer, one day :). Thank you for your effort and sharing of skills!"
Participant at Leadership Summer School Istanbul and Train Advanced Trainer Vilnius
"I have met Mirna as a trainer during the Youth Trainers Academy in 2012. I was fortunate to be in her reflection group, which meant that she supported me as a personal coach. I got to know Mirna as a very energetic and positive thinking person. She has the ability to work effective under stress and limited time, staying clear minded and responsive. Her quality of trainings is extraordinary as it is very well structured and instructions and theory explanations are comprehensive and understandable. She applies different learning methods and challenging exercises. Additionally I would like to point out her skills and expertise as a coach. She is a through active listener and has the ability to ask the good questions. Giving coaching sessions after long and tiring days, which was not her obligation at all, she has proofed a deep will and interest on participants´ development. Mirna proved her continuity by replying frequently to questions after the event and with continuing the coaching sessions via internet.
During YTA she helped me to push me to my limits, find out about my learning styles and through that improve my ability as a trainer. Her presence, performance and support gave an additional value to the whole event. I have met Mirna as an altruistic character and would like to give my high recommendations and best wishes for her future."

" Mirna's training style fits best to my learning style - structured, organized, powerful, clear, empowering. I enjoyed her sessions a lot and I would not hesitate to have her as a trainer at any other event - once you've had her at a trainer, you must have her again."

"I have met Mirna the first time at the Leadership Summerschool 2013 in Sofia and was immediately impressed. And since then I have heard tons of compliments about her. And what shall I say, everything I heard is nothing but the truth: Mirna is an excellent and passionate trainer. In her training sessions you will find a fruitful atmosphere for learning, experiencing and sharing. Also, be aware that Mirna's positive Attitude is highly contagious :-D And last but not least, what I like most about her, that she is very authentic and lives what she preaches."
Software Developer, Participant of Leadership Summer School 2015 and Happiness Academy 2015
"The webinar "12 steps to happiness" has been a wonderful experience with great content, ideas and group dynamics!
Mirna managed to give us a broad structured and science based overview on this vitally important field of applied psychology. Always enthusiastically and engaging, with interactive discussions and personal reflections and exercises!
Even with a background as psychologist and prior knowledge in the field I learned new things and enjoy the nicely prepared and useful materials and resources.
I can highly recommend the course to everyone who is interested in self development and life improvement. As for myself - I left every session inspired to reflect upon aspects of my life and with some ideas how they could be improved, and overall, a little bit happier than before :-) - Great job, Mirna & Hvala!"

and a word from co-trainers...

"Mirna proved to be very motivated, energetic and goal oriented. She displayed good strategic planing skills and efficiency, which greatly contributed to the quality of the event. Meanwhile, her people skills made long working hours fun and engaging. Throughout the whole process she was also very cooperative and supportive towards other team members. Next to the role of coordinator, Mirna was also a trainer at LSS. Based on feedback from participants her session were interesting, vivid, interactive and proved to be a meaningful learning experience for many of them. I am sure she will strive to develop her skills even further in the future as she is oriented towards personal and professional development. Working with Mirna was an incredibly pleasant experience, full of learning points. I would do it again without hesitation."

""Committed", "passionate" and "full of energy" is how I experienced working with Mirna.
As training coordinator she strived to let the team build ownernship of the process, ensuring that everyone contributes to her/his greatest strength.
As a trainer she contributes her knowledge and experience, is curious to employ new methods or adapt her style in order to ensure the participants' biggest learning outcomes."
Program Manager bei MitOst e.V. , co-trainer at Leadership Summer School 2013
"I worked in the same trainers team with Mirna for the Train Advanced Trainer international training course. We started our online work several months before and I appreciated since the beginning the structure and organisation that Mirna brought inside the team. She is a proactive and dedicated professional, taking care of including every member of the team and then create the optimal strategy, being focused on the result and making sure everyone is working on actionable items. I commend Mirna for being always accessible, and ready to help others both in her trainers team, and willing to go the extra mile to support the learning process of her training participants as well. During the long hours of an intensive training event it was very always fruitful that Mirna was able to come up quickly with practical solutions for any issues it might arise thus helping the workflow of everyone in the team.
Mirna is skilled in facilitating groups and leading confidently a classroom training, understanding the needs of participants and being always flexible and ready to adapt when the situation calls for it. One of her strongest skill in this is an extremely clear and focused way of communicating with others, an ability that is displayed also when talking with her trainer colleagues, making her an outstanding speaker. Finally I admire Mirna for open, people-oriented and supportive attitude alongside a structured, efficient and result oriented mindset at once, and I am looking forward to working with her again in future projects."
