Yuri played a big part in uplifting my business from where it was initially, into where it is today. He introduced to me new strategies and ways of serving others that I didn’t think were possible at the time. He really helped us dial in on our ideal client profiles, as well as our overall presentation, branding, and PR efforts as an agency. Helping us evolve and get in front of much bigger clients. We continue to apply his lessons today. - Jon Sicherman - CEO/Founder of Creative Minds Media Group

"On behalf of all of us from 2020 Startups we want to thank you for the incredible workshop you conducted on June 7th!

"Yuri delivered a concise and insightful presentation on the topic "How to Get Into a Top Startup." As a group of Young Professionals, our audience was eager to learn about this idea, and Yuri came through. People were informed and engaged, emerging with fresh and helpful tips for advancing in their professional careers. I recommend Yuri for any platform, and to boot, he is a pleasure to work with.“ - R' Ahrele Loschak, Director, CYP Brooklyn
 
"Yuri has been a big find in helping us up-level Winspire. Yuri has helped us sharpen our business model and create a compelling value proposition that has made us 10x more attractive to customers and investors. Yuri was also helpful in giving multiple strategies that we were not aware of, to build our Press and Partnerships. His advice has helped us gain visibility in the media and with investors. 

Personally, the biggest ‘wow’ for me has been the way Yuri was able to ask very compelling questions and trigger a change in my mindset – about how I saw my company in my own eyes and my customer’s eyes. It has created an immense confidence in me as a CEO and I can see that confidence translating into results for my company. I highly recommend execs who are stuck in their head to work with Yuri and unlock a potential that will save time and create real results. Thanks for the transformation you've created in my company and in myself Yuri!" - Vin Jeyaraj, Founder & CEO of Winspire

"What I liked the most about Yuri's training process is that he cares a lot about each person, in addition to giving us valuable knowledge related to getting press, strategic partners and investors. He also helped us a lot in the development of our pitch deck with wise and timely advice, in a comprehensive and holistic manner. I admire Yuri's great optimism and support as well as the positive energy that he transmits. What I have learned with Yuri has allowed us as a company to focus and understand many things about the New York market, what we didn't know beforehand. His training and insights have allowed me to move much faster than we expected in this three-month process." - Paulina Barría Hamamé, CEO of Bikelite
