Developing economies demand developing business strategies. New on the market in Russia is Western Vision Business Trainings, a company that has introduced a unique approach toward training and developing businesses in Russia.

Founded by an American who has been doing business in Russia since 2006, Western Vision has experienced first hand how miscommunication and misunderstandings due to differences in business culture and national mentality have caused missed opportunities in the development of successful business ventures and relationships.

We provide trainings in Western business practices for your team in the Russian context that are proven to show results. Along with effectively enhancing your communication skills among your staff and with potential and existing Western partners, we offer training in an entire array of business skills and methodologies that have been directly adapted from Western standards. Whether you're an ex-pat having difficulty adapting to business in Russia, or a Russian intent on breaking into the international market, we can equip you with the necessary skills to achieve success.

To kick things off, we are pleased to announce our first open seminar, to be held at 19:30 on 23 April, 2014 at the Hotel Oktyabrskaya located at Ligovsky Prospekt 10: “Psychology, History and Business: Russia and America at the Crossroads of Evolution.” The seminar is a study on the historical and psychological factors that have delegated the means in which business has developed in Russia and in the West, and offers strategies on how to effectively bridge the gap there in.
