Are You Ready 
To Turn Your Leadership  Into Thought Leadership?  


Let's talk


Executive branding is an online and offline strategy

What you need are these pillars: 

Own the stage 

Good speakers lead their audience into action. An executive must be capable of inspiring and leading the different stakeholders within the company brand through his speaking skills. 

Become a great communicator 

A question is an invitation to speak. But not all questions are alike. A strong leader knows 

  • how to use interview techniques that get the best results¬†
  • how to use emotional intelligence to talk to a diversity of people.


Your stakeholders need executive advocacy and Chief Brand Ambassadors. 



A strong leader accepts that he or she needs to lead both online and offline for several reasons:

  • to build trust with investors, clients and employees
  • to build owned media and an online audience as an assurance when crisis communication is needed.
  • to lead by example for brand ambassadors.¬†

"I work with Ianka on my keynotes and interviews, . She knows how to capture the essence of a message, a communication or a lecture. She always finds just the right words that give you a "yes, that's it" moment.
What's striking about ianka is her professionalism, her love for the spoken word. Bundling a story together and reducing it to its essence, in such a way that the listener remains fascinated until the end. "The Art of Recycling" then changes into "The Art of Speaking".
Ianka is champions league level."

 Are You Ready To Inspire, Lead & Change ?

I would love to guide you with my knowledge and experience, but only ...
if you are a leader who finds developing and sharing a vision super important.
If you are mission-driven AND have a flux mindset.
Someone who wants to move a stone in the river and change its flow bit by bit.
Are you that kind of person? Do you want to discover that?
