Idea of the project
The speaker of the meeting describes his business. More experienced business colleagues and consultants give him feedback on his project and share what they'd do in case of running this business.

You certainly feel like a pathfinder when running your own business. Having stepped on different "rakes" on your business way and coped, you are easy to understand what's going on in business of others. Sometimes the opinion of an experienced person can lead to new solutions, ideas and completely different vision of business.

Speakers' reflections

We are immensely grateful to the Business Rakes Club for the chance to join their community!
We attended meeting in the Club by a happy coincidence. It was very encouraging so we felt like sharing our experience and presenting our company and business in the Club.
The feedback we got was incredible!
The situation revealed in different perspective, and we saw new opportunities for growth and solving current problems. But the most important thing was that we saved precious time, as we did not try to figure out by our own (and at our own expense!) the eternal truths of making business.
Besides knowledge, we have found interesting acquaintances and started to establish partnership and client relations.
Thanks to the whole team of STEP Consulting for the excellent initiative.
I'd like to express my warmest regards to Svetlana Emelianova and Yevgeny Emelianov for the wise advices and to Yury Pakhomov for the active participation in the discussion and interesting articles. My special thanks to Gulnara Mingacheva for the excellent event organization!

Torrefacto
My acquaintance with the Business Rakes Club started by chance, though, nothing is accidental in my life. We were invited to a meeting of entrepreneurs. And at ones I realized a desire to come here again. My intuition turned out to be right, as usual. Warm friendly atmosphere and enthusiastic people in the audience made the event hearty and adoring. Communication was incredibly warm. The audience was small, so it was possible to talk effectively and thoroughly, to consider new ideas for the implementation.

The next meeting was a few months later. There were other people but the same atmosphere. Again I've spend a few excellent hours in smart and interesting company. The air was full of real human-centric ideas, which, I believe, distinguish the business of the future from the business of the past.

I can't afford to attend these meetings more often because of my own schedule. I travel a lot in Russia and around the world. I would definitely recommend to all entrepreneurs to attend Business Rakes Club.
