"Communicating for Results!"


Vitalia Bryn-Pundyk, M.Ed/DTM

PowerTalk Power Club President

Greetings PowerTalk Power Pals and welcome to our newly formed PowerTalk Power Club – We are off to a really great start as we just completed our Pilot Program Year with 12 VIP full members and 11 a la carte part time members for a total of 23 PowerTalk Power Club Members!

I am really looking forward to seeing what this new year will bring and am excited to have so many Power Pals gather on our PowerTalk Platform to help each other grow and succeed.

Each month we hope to provide you with engaging, entertaining, and educational meetings that challenge you to raise the bar and continue to strengthen your leadership and presentation skills along with your business networking skills. 

This is a professional speakers club to help us get feedback on our presentations. This is a small business networking club, to help us grow our contacts and grow collaboratively through joint ventures and referrals. This is a social club for personal enrichment.

Our hope is to provide you with a NOURISHING,  NURTURING,  NETWORKING environment where together we explore – exchange – experience - and excel! 

Come discover the Power of the PowerTalk Power Club – a club where all our members are highly valued and emPOWERed!

Cheers and MANY THANKS to all of you for participating in our Pilot Program, making this club an AMAZING and POWERFUL start to the new year!

Don't Fumble Sharing Slides in Zoom!

Don't be THAT person–the one who fumbles sharing their slides, or shows all the thumbnails.

In the video below (3:32), you will see first the "bad" of what often happens, then how to share smoothly:

1. Get your slides ready to share, already in 

    slideshow mode

2. Hit the green share button

3. select your slides

4. Share (blue button in the lower right) when it's 

     time to share–smooth as silk!]ttps://

      PowerTalk Power Tips

Don't eat the yellow snow! 

- submitted by Tipster Roman Pundyk, DTM

Secret to making the perfect steak: When cooking a steak on the grill or oven, make sure that the steak is at room temperature. This way the steak will cook evenly.   Also, let the steak "rest" (cover the steak with aluminum foil) for 5 minutes before serving.

       PowerTalk Palate

This is one of my favorite quick and easy "Go To" Recipes when I just don't know what I want to eat! -  - Roman Pundyk, DTM

                                                     Honey Garlic Shrimp


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)
  • 1 Tablespoon jarred minced garlic or 2 teaspoons fresh
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 lb medium uncooked shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • chopped green onion for garnish

1. Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger (if using) together in a medium bowl.

2. Place shrimp in a large zipped-top bag or tupperware.  Pour 1/2 of the marinade mixture on

     top, give it all a shake or stir, then allow shrimp to marinate in the refrigerator for 15

     minutes or for up to 8-12 hours.  Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade for step 3.

3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Place shrimp in the skillet.  (Discard used

     marinade.)  Cook shrimp on one side until pink– about 45 seconds– then flip shrimp over.

     Pour in remaining marinade and cook it all until shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute 

     more.  Garnish with green  onions.
