Women Who Inspire in partnership with CIS London & Partners held the cocktail reception at Bvlgari, London, to celebrate the International Women Day. The event was run for the Russian-speaking female entrepreneurs. Svetlana London shared her experience on a business contingency plan, the topic often overlooked by small businesses and currently in demand in light of the recent events.

Svetlana London focused on the balance of power in a typical English company and described an array of tools that can help improve an investor’s standing, with emphasis on access to information and instruments of control. Zima Magazine report about the event is available here (in Russian).
