Leader: Zoran Panjak (please see attached)

09.09 -- Private business ventures -- Pros and cons: In an ever-developing business climate, some entrepreneurs find difficulties in every opportunity, while others find opportunities in every difficulty. We will explore this topic by discussing the challenges of the contemporary business climate, in Russia and abroad.

16.09 -- Qualifications vs. experience: It is generally understood that the more you professionally develop yourself by increasing the number of degrees, certifications, etc. that you have, the more valuable you will be to an organization. But how do qualifications compare to hands-on/practical experience in a world where many suggest that university education is not as valuable as it once was? We will discuss different scenarios where one may or may not outweigh the other.

23.09 -- Business big and small: We are all looking to expand our CVs and develop our set of professional skills. What are the advantages of working in a big company as opposed to those of a small company. What advantages do small companies offer that big ones cannot? We will explore these and other questions on this topic.

30. 09 -- Meeting strategies. Meetings are an integral part of work flow and business processes. Many would agree however, that they are often a waste of time. We will discuss the traditional approaches toward holding meetings, as well as some new approaches that may provide better results and a more effective use of time.

Registration for SPIBA members is not needed.
Participation for SPIBA members is free of charge.
