Moscow meet-ups with the Silicon Valley philosophy
Anastasia Prisyazhnaya — a young, active and purposeful lady. She organizes IT-meetings based on the Silicon Valley philosophy. She carefully selects every speaker, then “torments” them on the subject of speech to be no more than 5 minutes. Before my speech Nastia called me 5 times with the words that I have to attend the training session to practice my 5-minute-speech, or people will fall asleep. I promised her that I’ll make everything up. Everything succeeded and Nastia was very pleased.
Nastia went to the U.S. And then returned back to Russia with a great desire of creating the working projects there.
