Sadykov, master-classes by the AIIC member Julia Poger, Irina Alekseeva (Head of the St.Petersburg School of Conference Interpreting), Stephen de Bethune (senior editor/translator Deloitte, Moscow), Arsen Lasursky (senior editor/translator, The Boston Consulting Group), V.

Konurbayev, the professor of Lomonosov MSU, for the opportunity to visit such a great event and listen to interpreting masters. The contest proved to be very exciting and interesting! I took part in it as well and made it to the quarterfinals. Better luck next time!
