Not only is Viktoria passionate about food and the role it plays in our lives, but also in her approach to helping others. She has been unstintingly generous with her advice in assisting me with the marketing for my new cooking school.

Sam Hayek, CEO, The Groundskeeper Cafe Group

Viktoria has been a great supporter of Taste Tours, and our work as a charity and food tour business. She initially provided assistance as an advisor and mentor, eventually joining the Board at the 2017 AGM. Viktoria is sharp and intelligent, diligent and hard working. She provides a high level framework for understanding the why and how of what we do, and will put in the hard yards to make things happen. She is bold and enthusiastic and not shy of either sharing her views, or of putting in the hours it takes to do things properly. She makes things happen, and she does that very well.
Lesley Unsworth, CEO, Taste Food Tours

Viktoria’s greatest strengths are her intelligence, passion and desire to be a lifelong learner.

Sharing her knowledge and experience to enable people to make a positive change is what makes Viktoria special. She would be a great asset to any team.​“Viktoria commenced with Barringtons some 18 months ago in our Marketing Division where her role saw her oversee the entire marketing strategies of Barringtons products and services.  Her role included the design and construction of our social media platform which has provided a substantial increase in sales in a short period of time. I recommend Viktoria to any business that requires design and implementation of social media strategies.”

Hi Viktoria,
Firstly, thank you so much for your visit and talk to the Committee on Wednesday. We all benefited each in different ways, we were all engaged, and your message was very well received. Various people took notes at different times, and we have started getting some things happening by thinking about the workshop in new ways. The Transformational Experiences slant was particularly relevant.  You’ve got us thinking.

Hi Viktoria,
Your talk at SIA was very inspiring and one of the reasons we did participate this year in the Biggest Morning Tea. I have also started to be involved (in many different ways) at various school fetes (all coming up in Spring) around the area as I am trying to put into practice the idea of people seeing us out and about and in print to start remembering us. I really got a lot of inspiration from your talk and I thank you for that.I have really revved up my staff with all the ideas I brought back from SIA. I’m looking forward to being involved in your Open Weekend.
Kylie Gatto,  Owner , Memories in the Making

Hi Viktoria,
Thanks so much for your time today. It has certainly given us a lot of food for thought and we have a fantastic basis now for working through many of the ideas we have had over the last few months, with more clarity and direction than we had previously.Your enthusiasm and excitement is inspiring and whilst some ideas have turned things on their heads a bit, it’s all good stuff for us to think about! We really appreciate it and look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.Thanks
Natalie Cavalli, Owner, Simply Original Fine Foods

“Having Viktoria as a mentor on this inaugural industry event has given me the personal confidence needed to negotiate with big business. Her work ethics and encouragement have been a tremendous example and she has increased my desire to work on my weaknesses, improve on the abilities I have. She has awakened me to greater and challenging possibilities and improved both my business and interpersonal communications. On a more personal level,  Viktoria created a belief in me that anything is possible.”

Hi Viktoria,
I know you are busy but I just had to tell you this is your best work yet. That said, I’m not sure if I appreciate you putting me out of work – so little editing needed. Your writing has really come on over recent articles but this one is (excuse the pun) the icing on the cake. You really get a feel for the artist and her work. WELL DONE YOU! Talk soon.
