VOLGA boat show
In 2012 we started to organize VOLGA boat show for the first time.
Now it is the biggest in-water yachting event in Russia and it is especially nice, that it is not only the the exhibition of yachts, boats, cars, planes, equipment etc. - but is a real show, with test drives, presentations, master classes, airshow, sport contests, art gallery and many other events. And I appreciate it when people come with their spouses, with their children - the real Holiday for the whole family.
About VOLGA boat show
TV show "Real Business"
It was invaluable experience of organizing the real TV show! But it was honest - real people, real selection, real tasks, real winners and real business.
Life after Business
It is a very interesting question - if there is any life after business. For example, I know a lot of etrepreneurs who couldn't find themself after exiting the business, but at the same time many people understand the their business is their life and unfortunately thay can't do anything useful and meaningful else like being with their family or get involved in art... I decided to make some researches and try to understand the main forses of our exiting the business and the main focus areas of business retired.

In the long run - we did it! 18 days, about 6000 km, broken steering control in the middle of the ocean... and finish! Here we first saw the land!

My main dream and the main task for the nearest couple of years – to create the Yacht Museum. Certainly, I have visited a lot of maritime, boat, ocean museums in different countries and I really appreciate that they have a lot of valuable exhibits and artefacts. But I would like to create primarily cognitive place, where children and adults can understand why boat is afloat, why operate the sails, how propeller moves the boat, what types of materials can we use to create the boat etc. And the main exhibits should be not the valuable documents and pictures on the walls, but everything you can touch and people who can teach and explain based on their experience.
I have read a lot of phsychological books, but the most valuable author for me is Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. I strongly recomend to read his two books:
FLOW: the psychology of Optimal Experience and The Evolving Self.
It was many years ago. And it was the first and the most favorite project. It is the rare case when everybody needed it – candidates received the unique chance to contact the famous business monsters, employers could find the necessary specialists in one day, Universities presented their graduates, sponsors promoted new services and goods and everybody was satisfied and happy.
Even now when the number of events and projects is measured in hundreds I couldn’t remember such a balanced project. Although may be because it was the first.
