Yan comments on the occasion: “I participated in this educational programme on management skills for the first time. Trainees are over 1,000 people across Russia – the regional leaders and their teams. Trainers are businessmen, scientists of international level, experts and consultants. I am excited to join such an ambitious and prestigious programme as a speaker and share my experience in investment disputes”.
