    "The mentoring session is an amazing opportunity to enable us entrepreneurial students to speak with someone who has direct experience in business. It is bridging the gap from theory to the real world. I spoke with Slava about my business idea to connect people to the internet and he provided me with questions to do further research to make the idea world more effectively in the real world. I will be asking for further advice in the near future and the PPE Entrepreneur in Residence is an invaluable resource to have for our course."

    Jonathan Pullock, BA Entrepreneurship Student of Westminster Business School

    "My mentoring session with Mr Slava was very insightful, full of information and very useful, I would have asked him much more questions however the time got to the better of us... I do genuinely look up to him as a mentor as I find him to be very helpful in the field that he works in, I do hope to keep these meetings on a regular basis, as I am sure it will help me grow my business skills."

I really enjoyed the experience. He comes highly recommended."

    "In the session, Slava has guided me to the exact way of how to solve areal physical problem by using a digital system. He have announced all his talents and creative approaches in placing my idea on track. This has caused me even more confidence in my idea as an entrepreneur student, also to be motivated and keep heading to achieve my goal. For sure I will come take more advices. Appreciated!"

    "I knew that I had found an inspiring entrepreneur who I would learn from, the first time I heard Slava speak at the Westminster business school about Eligent task manager. He brought incredible insight, balanced perspectives and at the same time has challenged me at all the right times to push myself that much harder to achieve my ambitions. His kindness and willingness to share his own experiences has been incredible. Specially to have insights from a highly talented entrepreneur who is growing in every aspect of his profession has been very motivating personally. Our conversations helped me grow personally and professionally."

    "A founder’s pitch is like the distilled essence of startup and founder. Done well it is a key that unlocks doors, badly, bridges are burnt. So to film pitches it is absolutely vital to get the tone, style and flow correct. Slava and his team were unobtrusive and sensitive during our pitch day at The Startup Leadership Program. They successfully captured our founders in their stride. Not an easy brief. Thank you."

    "I really appreciate how open you were to answering our questions and tailoring the talk to suit the needs of the audience; your drive, professionalism and commitment to harnessing and optimising entrepreneurship really shone through, and I know that we all left feeling stimulated and inspired by what we had seen and heard."
