During 2000—2010th and especially in the last 4 years economical surface in Russia and her neighbor countries has changed sigaThe year is nearing its end, and if I had to guess off the top of my head, I’d say I’ve been to more than 20 marketing conferences and events around the country as a keynote speaker or an attendee in 2016 alone. It’s a little exhausting traveling so often, but honestly, I love the opportunities I have to speak to audiences and connect with attendees and other speakers.

But the reason I speak to audiences isn’t because it brings me unparalleled joy (though I do enjoy it). Speaking at conferences brings real opportunity to my company: Conferences were Influence & Co.’s second-highest source of new clients in 2015, and they give me and my team the chance to strengthen relationships with partners and influencers face to face.nificantly. Despite economic sanctions, one will have to admit the growth business cooperation, arising in this region in recent period of time.
