Natalia Volodina

Marketing Manager

When I received my degree in Marketing from Siberian University, I decided never to give up on it, I reckon it was love. I started my career in an advertising agency where I gained a great deal of experience in all forms of marketing communication. I then worked successfully as a marketing specialist for 5 years around Russia. I am a motivated marketing professional with 7 years of experience in digital and event marketing. I am skilled, creative and innovative and I always try to discover new ways to experience Marketing. The World is changing and I am on the transition team. I believe a positive attitude creates more miracles than any other thing, because life it is not how you make it, it is more how you take it.

I am a born and bred kiwi. I was forced into taking Business Studies in college and this is where I found a love of marketing.

Dennis Vlasin

Founder

I started my professional education in Russia, studying computer science and management.
Later I worked hard marketing and the development of a variety of brands in Eastern Siberia and Moscow. For a while I got some experience in the field of tourism and business development in South-East Asia, and then headed an office of a tourist agency in Moscow. Here, in New Zealand, I’ve been doing marketing, brand management and direct work with clients for more than a year.
I like to work, create, and discover new horizons. I love professionalism, and therefore I am very demanding on myself. In a business relationship and partnership, I value honesty and competence. I am a very sociable person, I am always open to negotiations and am happy to help people who need help.

Vitaly Unzhakov

Filmmaker

My experience sometimes leads me into thinking about the subject, “Do I remember everything?”. Since graduation, I have worked in various positions in a variety of fields, the most memorable was and remains the experience of working in television, which has radically changed my life and now I can not imagine my life without this fascinating affair.
I have always admired people who, despite any difficulties and even losses, continue their business, emitting a huge amount of energy. This resonates with me, because without overcoming difficulties there are no achievements.
