Being Grigoriy’s direct supervisor and senior lawyer of the KPMG, I consider that Grigoriy is a suitable candidate to take part in the Russian Business Leaders program.Grigoriy is a good professional in jurisprudence, he is highly motivated and has excellent written and verbal communication skills. When carrying out the projects, he shows a unique, creative approach, and he is good at analytics. For example, in one of our projects on the development of a legal strategy for corporate restructuring, he offered a decision that was excellent not only from the legal point of view but also took into account the client’s business needs, and in the aftermath got positive feedback from the client. Grigoriy also possesses strong leadership skills, his colleagues often ask him for advice and assistance in different projects, and he is not afraid to make decisions. To my mind, he enjoys being a leader and feels confident in it. As a legal consulting company we run numerous projects at the same time and Grigoriy is able to effectively multi-task to ensure that all projects are completed in a timely manner.As an area for improving his professional skills, I would call attention to detail. While developing documents, Grigoriy sometimes shows insufficient cautiousness, however, in recent projects there has been a tendency to improve, which also positively characterizes him as a person striving for education. Ivan also should concentrate his professional interests, undoubtedly, his spacious mind often allows him to come up with a more creative solution to the problem, however, if he turns his focus more purposefully, he can achieve more.Grigoriy strives for development within our company and wants to move up the career ladder and this interning will definitely benefit not only his career but also our business – most of our clients are international companies and understanding of their business processes and culture will give a more productive way to interact with them.From the point of view of a person who has studied in England, I am sure that international education experience is priceless and I would like this opportunity to be provided to Grigoriy, as a person who will try to seize maximum opportunities from the program. If you have any questions about Grigoriy or this recommendation, please contact me.
