From Russia to NI with training

A marketing manager from Russia is currently in Northern Ireland as part of an international management training scheme.

Russian Maria Mirenstaya, is visiting the province as part of the Russian President's Management Training Initiative to share and develop management skills with local IT and training company Sx3.

As Marketing Director for Andreev Soft, the leading IT company in the Russian region of Tver, Maria said she had gained much from her placement at the Northern Ireland-based company.

"Sx3's work on the Classroom 2000 initiative is directly relevant to the services offered by Andreev," said Maria.

"There are many other parallels between our companies so as well as sharing my experiences when I return to Russia, I also look forward to developing Andreev's business relationship with Sx3."

The Russian President's Management Training Initiative aims to foster closer commercial ties between British and Russian companies.

The scheme provides support to middle and senior Russian managers who are committed to developing Russia's enterprise sector.
