    Mykola Shurma, PMP, CSM,
    Project Manager:

    I attended the Scrum training conducted by Nataliya and I did enjoy it. It was professionally organized, the quality of materials was good and often fun, there were lots of samples, practice and experience sharing. Nataliya, as a trainer, was really cool and did her best trying to share as much knowledge as she could during such a short training. I recommend attending this training or any other by Nataliya if you want to dive into agile, scrum, and product ownership, or polish your skills

    Alexander Menzheres,
    Co-Founder at Apiware LLC:

    I've recently attended Nataliya's training and would like to recommend her as a professional coach that pays significant attention to process visualization, practice and fun. She makes her best to stay up to date with the most recent Agile approaches and techniques, which adds even more value to her certification courses. I encourage everyone who's looking for CSPO or CSM trainings in Ukraine to consider Nataliya.

    Alexander Menzheres,
    Co-Founder at Apiware LLC:

    I participated in both Scrum Master and Product Owner courses. I attended Scrum Master course 6 months before the Product Owner one. At the beginning, I thought it would be not so interesting because I thought I knew a lot about the course. However, the program was really good and the information I knew was shown from a different perspective.

    I enjoyed the course because it helped me to improve my knowledge and get new experience. Nataliya is a really talented coach and knows how to involve all the participants into the studying process. It’s worth visiting this course even if you already have some other certifications.

    Lucy Karpova,
    Scrum Master Lead / Kanban Coach at X1 Group:

    Nataliya is a very inspiring Scrum trainer, she's very good at explaining a rather complicated methodology in simple terms and has a wide experience in helping various types of IT and non-IT companies use Agile technologies to get better results. I was absolutely happy with the training I visited and hope to advance more in agile methodologies with her help.

    Slavik Andreyev,
    QA Engineer at Ciklum:

    Nataliya is the greatest Scrum Trainer ever. She helps to understand her students what is Scrum and how to use it to improve quality of product and processes. Nataliya has delivered to me the most important knowledge about software development I ever learned. Thanks, Nataliya.

    Dmitry Borschanenko,

    Nataliya is great Agile coach who can easily inspire people to learn new things and build efficient learning process.

    She brought to our teams understanding of how to apply all the agile techniques in the real, every day work. Before Nataliya's training we had only theoretical knowledge about agile approaches, but she put everything together by the interesting workshops and made our knowledge applicable.

    Her ability to control the situation and lead the groups shows her real tallent as a trainer. I can strongly recommend Nataliya as a highly professional coach and very open person.
