Our members about us

To begin with, let me thank SPIBA for a perfect opportunity of such informal meetings with the directors. Today I have visited “Breakfast with the Director” for the first time and I can surely say that it was a successful experience. The format as well as the event itself was well-organized, and it ensured natural and positive atmosphere. >>>>
