I graduated from Moscow University for the Humanities (the Faculty of Cultural Studies and Tourism Management) and Plekhanov Russian University of Economics as a marketer. While studying at the first university I found a job in a small travel agency and began arranging events. Two years after my graduation I moved to work in a greater company — "Stella Polaris" — where I was organizing air transportations, booking hotels for groups and then arranging off-site events. It was fifteen years ago. At the time companies just started organizing corporate off-site events. We were opening new directions, working with various formats like intensive-tours, conferences, exhibitions, incentive trips, etc. I kept on doing it all in a larger company — "Nicko Travel Services". For several years of work in this agency, I organized many tours for large companies. I also had to deal with unusual tasks like making an exit for the fans of the CSKA basketball team in Tel Aviv. Or completely ensure the stay of the KAMAZ fans team for the Paris-Dakar rally. I had to find good hotels and restaurants in Senegal. It was not all that easy. There were almost no large decent hotels there, no one ever heard about e-mail and so on. So I had to look for reliable partners in the country. I remember that I was arranging that trip for three months and it was useful experience for me.
In 2007, I became the director of the department of international events in a large company "Aeroclub tour". There I met Larisa Sklyar, and then Nadezhda Galustyan joined our team. Together we organized a lot of difficult events. We did so many things throughout all those years! An off-site conference for a large telecommunications holding in Jordan for 150 participants, a tour for 450 employees of the largest FMCG company on the island of Borneo and much more. By the way, we had to change three times to get to Borneo. The logistics of this trip was extremely difficult — moving between terminals, spending the night on the road, etc.
In 2009, our team was invited to the company "Chikolad" to introduce the direction of international events. And now we provide services for the organization of any corporate events under our own brand. Over the years of work we have formed our own team and our own approach to arranging any event, due to which we don’t just organize trips — we create bright, memorable events. How do we do that? There is no secret: we must live and breathe our work. Our staff is always in touch with its partners and performers (we have them on all continents), it always solves all the issues promptly and will work all night long, if necessary, so that everything goes "perfectly well". Of course, such work requires a special type of character. We are curious and sociable, we like people, we like to communicate with them and solve many issues. And the main point is that we love what we do.
