Our first discussion will be attended by people who have negotiation success stories to share. 

Devoted to the proper way of speaking in courtroom, our second session will be facilitated by Alexandra Maidannik, Managing Partner with Delcredere Attorneys-at-Law.

The third discussion will focus on a range of digital skills every lawyer needs in their life and work. This session will be moderated by Ruslan Ibragimov, Vice President for Corporate and Legal Affairs, MTS, Member of the Management Board, Not-for-Profit Partnership RCCA Association.

The fourth group will learn the successful methods of delivering important information (storytelling) so as to achieve the intended results.

At the fifth roundtable, RCCA President Alexandra Nesterenko invites networking experts to share their professional secrets.

Our sixth and final discussion, exploring the intricacies of government relations and the relevant skills, will unfold under the chairmanship of a public servant.

The attendees will take away a good idea of the qualities and skills most sought-after in business, and many will seriously think about cultivating them.
