Slavonic Society:
Mr Geoffrey Nicholson on the business environment in Russia

Mr Nicholson came to talk to the Slavonic Society on why Russia is growing proportionately more than Britain or America.

He runs his own consultancy firm in London, New York and Moscow. The message of his talk was that he found Russia the most interesting place to work in. Corruption appeared not to be a problem and he sung the praises of the country right the way through the meeting. He voiced his opinions about the benefits of investing in Russia compared to China or Brazil, by declaring that the money was easier to get out once a profit had been made. Russia’s problems were also discussed and Mr Nicholson gave a pretty positive appraisal on Vladimir Putin’s administration.
