I'm ianka

Founder of Thought Leaders Academy. During my successful career as an actress in television, movies and theatre, I had the opportunity to become an author, director and producer of my own programs on television and radio. I am a sought-after moderator of high-end conferences on biotech, marketing, entrepreneurship, innovation and a speaker on creativity and self-development. When I'm not on stage, I guide, train, coach and mentor experts in their journey to become thought leaders (with a commercially successful practice)

Open Training For Aspiring Person Of Influence

....................

At Thought Leader Academy, I coach, guide, and train experts, leaders, and entrepreneurs in their journey to become a Person Of Influence.
I mainly work 1-2-1 or with a very select group of speakers. Because speaking in front of a group is an essential exercise, we organize one- or two-day training on a specific topic any speaker, whether you're an aspiring/business/professional speaker, or a Thought Leader, should master.
These boot camps are open to non-Thought Leader members.

Let’s get to it!

....................

On the press release of a prestigious television series in which I played one of the lead roles, I told the director and producer:

"This is the last part I'll be playing." 

I still remember the surprise in their eyes. But for me the decision was made.

I said goodbye to a life on the red carpet and resolutely opted for the jungle of entrepreneurship. Eager and ready to help thought leaders develop and share their vision on stage.
