"I felt that the I Finnish-Russian Educational Forum in St.Petersburg in March 2018 was very well organized. Topics were inspiring and the speakers were true professionals. We met several prospects and got several interesting contacts in the Russian Education market."
"The I Finnish-Russian Educational Forum in St-Petersburg was first of all a great experience. We were very pleased that we had time to present our services and that there were so many interested about what were are offering. It was good that you brought us together with the organisations and schools from Russia and Kazakhstan. We got even some actual partners to collaborate with. We think that the Forum was a place were everybody was "serious" about the educational needs and ready to collaborate with each other. It was also good that there were presentations from the schools in Russia, so that we could understand more how education is developed in Russia."
I've been in Finland for two days in a frame of a tour. We saw a lot of interesting things: we gave a visit for two schools, a kindergarten and also we had a business visit to the Finnish National Agency for Education. I received a lot of useful, interesting and inspiring information about education. As well a lot of information to think about .To summarize the most important impression of the trip, I would like to say that the Finnish education system begins with trust. The whole educational process builds on this. Finns are experimenting a lot, use innovations and succeed. "
