I have obtained my life coach qualification in late 2015 at the prestigious Coach Training Institute (CTI) in London.

I was invited to Sky TV where I have received this quote:

Marta was an extremely professional and interesting part of the show. She provided support and guidance on two of our shows and we will certainly be asking her back in the near future.

A year later in late 2016, I by chance have ended up at a Dangerous Personalities seminar that has set me on an unexpectedly deep inner journey which has helped me to find the answers of the most burning questions in my life, but more so, I started to notice that I can quite successfully help my human environment to start the same journey.

I have started my speaker career as a facilitator in August 2018 when I have received an invitation to hold two four hours interactive activities on emotional intelligence in Budapest/Hungary at the EURO Language School for adults.

Soon after I was invited to an also Budapest based Budai Magán Zeneiskola (Buda Private Music School) but this time I was invited to talk about emotional intelligence basics to 6-8 year old kids.

My first UK school talk was held in the Radnor Music School, in September 2018

My last talk in 2018 was at The Bullers Wood Boys School in November, where I have held a school talk for 9-10 years old boys with conditions of ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome. The subject was emotional intelligence.

I had a Dangerous Personalities seminar, that took place at the St Stephen House, Ealing/London in August 2019.

On 17 October 2019, I was invited to the St Mary’s University by Eleni Avaropoulou, Senior Lecturer in Business Management at the St Mary's University to take part of a podiums discussion about emotional intelligence in organisational politics.

On 22 October 2019, I was re-invited by the Business Society of the St Mary’s University to speak about The Road To Happyness.

Orsi Nagy, Business Coach, has interviewed me live on 17 March 2020 following the 27 Februar 2020 H.E.N.E (Hungarian Entrepreneurs Networking Event) Master Class, as we wanted to cover a broad mental health topic from an original perspective for a broader audience.

My name is Marta Maria Kupeczik (Martamaria). I am a facilitator, motivational speaker. Recognising that happiness is more in our hands than we would ever think possible is why I made a choice to talk about "The Road to Happiness" from an empathy point of view.

Though I had recognised that I myself needed to go back to the emotional intelligence basics to understand those major questions that I so far haven’t managed to answer in my own life, after I had done so, I was ready to serve communities on a larger scale: I have started to share with schools and businesses the simple, but life altering knowledge I have gained.

Just knowing that the first seven years of our lives we automatically download our emotional defence mechanisms that will, though from our subconscious, drive our actions though our emotions - or the lack of - throughout our entire life is in itself key to understand ourselves. Being consciously aware how emotional intelligence basics influence our lives and all our human relationships changes us significantly for the better. There is a huge difference between subconsciously recognising traces of what is happening to us compared to fully understanding our relationships with a help from our conscious and subconscious. Having recognised that we do not have a chance to consciously learn, to be able to express some hugely important emotional terms such as the difference between unconditional and conditional love, empathy and empathy deficit, emotional defence mechanisms (how both bullies and those who are bullied are created) has hit me hard.

I was always aware of people finding me from all walks of life to seek help or emotional support, but I did not know what being a highly empathetic individual (empath) meant. Being born as an empath but not recognising it is a problem for millions of people, despite it having a key role in order to create better human environments for us and for our loved ones. A proper emotional awakening process is usually delayed in our lives due to lack of conscious understanding of basic emotional terms, which should be no less valued than the multiplication table in mathematics we all learn in elementary school.

Being a motivational speaker I can combine everything I have so far gained experience in: my nursing studies, being a touring singer, a medical and legal interpreter and being a qualified life coach. Through having insight in these fields and doing a thorough self-study over a number of years has brought me clarity, has helped me to revise my own life’s relationships and those of others.

I fuse emotional intelligence terms into a story, use real life experience too, that gives the listener an insight into the meaning of it all in less than an hour.

I have realised that the sooner we recognise our own qualities, value system, driving forces, the better chance we have to build and successfully retain our private and later business relationships. I am lately mainly focusing on adult education.

I can foresee a day when education will routinely include inculcating essential human competencies such as self-awareness, self-control, and empathy, and the arts of listening, resolving conflicts, and cooperation.

I am a creative and versatile speaker. Though my talk has a core, I can tailor my talk to suit your class in terms of both length and content. The minimum time I talk for is one hour.

Core terms introduced are:

  • The difference between unconditional and conditional love
  • Empathy and empathy deficit
  • Emotional defense mechanisms
  • How bullies and those they bully are created
