CERBA kicked off the business season 2014 with a presentation and panel discussion to the future prospects of Russia, inviting Ian Pryde, Founder and CEO of Eurasia Strategy & Communications, with over 20 years of experience in Russia and CIS, as well as panelists with profound insight and experience in business in Russia, Slava Rabinovich from Direct Capital Solutions, John Schreiner from IMAX Russia, Middle East and India, Geoffrey Nicholson from PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Jon Hellevig from Awara Group. The panel was moderated by Lou Naumovski from company Kinross, with around 40 participants of major companies operating in Russia and hosted in the Awara Creative Lounge at Awara Group.
After Ian’s brief into the topic, panelists shared their experience and views and guests were invited to participate actively in the discussion. The good level of different views of the panelists in regards to Russia’s current and future business prospects gave a good basis for sharing different opinions on this topic, creating a vivid discussion.
The event was followed by cocktails and networking, where sharing of thoughts was continued and new contacts made.
