While the winner (Ivan Atamanenko) is preparing for the tough competition in Poland and his competitors continue finding answers for the tricky question, we will tell you the story behind the scenes.


To understand why our participants fervently continue finding proper solutions, try to answer the question by yourselves. “There is a proverb: curiosity killed a cat. Please, explain, why?” After the question was uttered lots of stories with cats appeared on the stage: some of them were fluffy, some – aggressive, some – fictional, but all of them were created by inquisitive minds of our speakers. One our contestant even confessed that he has the middle name ‘Curious’ and is ready to change his passport details. Ivan Atamanenko, you definitely need to add some information into your passport – a visa for Poland for a change.

For those of Toastmasters who will stay with us in Ukraine, we would like to wish new challenges to take, new roles to fulfill and never to give up. No need for pitying, because you chance will come tomorrow!


Now we can reveal the name of the person who has created such a peculiar and tough question. She burnt lots of nerves and petrol to assure that everything will be conducted on the highest level. She has impeccable taste and a big bag of creativity; she is our lovely Area B4 Director Maryna Gotovkina!


It is important not only to have decent people to win and great performers to listen to but also to have the place where to do it. Thanks to Harms we had everything we wanted on the early Saturday morning: strong coffee, tasty cakes, and friendly atmosphere.


At the end, we would like to say that someone is not only behind the scenes but also behind this very post. If you hear the advertisement “Lelik and Bolik are organizing the PR campaign for the next TM event”, know that Julia Barchukova and Maria Kuzmenko are somewhere nearby.

Thanks for coming and see you again at the next unforgettable, inspiring, and unbelievable Area B4 event!
