"Elina's inspiring talk on positive psychology motivated me and gave me a toolkit for personal and professional growth. Elina presents empirical research in a fun and engaging way. Her experience in corporate law gives her talk authenticity and realism."

"Our team really enjoyed the goal setting session which included a best self-visualization.  We encourage meditation and mindfulness at our company but it is sometimes very challenging to get our employees on board with it.  The approach of the LightUp Lab attracted a good number of our staff and even better, many of them left inspired and curious to learn more.  Several of us left the session in tears as the visualization portion really took us back to a specific time in life and provoked certain emotions. I am a huge fan of Elina and I plan to further incorporate her sessions into future company events."

"The LightUp Lab has visited our office twice, each time bringing something unique and new to the space. The first time they hosted a session addressing 'Focus' and how we can practice guided meditation and controlled breathing in order to improve focus which, in turn, improves productivity. With empirical evidence, guided meditation, and a short journaling session, I believe everyone walked away with a better sense of how they can improve their our own productivity in the workplace. We enjoyed so much they came back for another session a few months later, this time focusing on 'Creativity'. Highly recommend working with Lightup Lab! "

"Elina’s workshop on personal and organizational values was deeply valuable for my team. As a venture-backed fast growth company, our focus isn't always on personal growth, but rather our company growth - and Elina’s inspirational presentation gave us a renewed sense of purpose and drive”

"Having attended multiple LightUp Lab workshops, I’ve left each workshop with a sense of calm, clarity and motivation. At Hoppin, we create access to inspiring professionals through shadowing opportunities. On a daily basis I meet people who are looking to find personal and professional growth and the ability to bring their whole selves to work. LightUp teaches the tools to allow people to do so effectively, and inspires them to really take action!"

"As an office committed to the personal and professional growth of university faculty and administrators, NYU Work Life invited Elina to speak to administrators about positive psychology and the ways that they could improve their daily lives. In addition to tailoring the presentation based on our audience and time limit, Elina was a thoughtful and engaging presenter, and we received positive feedback about her presentation immediately afterward. The tools she offered were valuable and motivational, and we hope to work with Elina again very soon."
