Our members about us

First of all, I would like to note that “Breakfast with the Director” format is the original idea of SPIBA and have no analogs in the city. On the one hand the events are held in a business format and on each of them the actual for business community topic or real business case from the history of the company is presented by the first person of the company. On the other hand - meetings take place in a cosy atmosphere, there is always an opportunity to communicate both to participants of the event, and with the lead person of "Breakfast".>>>>
