It all starts with an idea, but that's not enough! You always need to learn and improve yourself and your team! There will be no progress without development!

Like any person I have my difficult moments too, but I try not to allow myself to be in this state for a long time. I just know one thing - I love what I do. To be honest, I really enjoy my work. Therefore, everything is simple because if you like what you do- you will never fall down!

Returning to the age when you were 20 what advice could you give to yourself?

Igor, you are doing everything right! Even if times could be turned back, I would never change anything!

Do you have your personal motto for life which keeps you creating such wonderful project as Quality Standard and Dubai People?

Motto - your inner voice knows the whole truth, just listen to yourself!

Your businesses are built on exquisite experiences but how do you define an entrepreneur on your own?

Any entrepreneur - is a person who takes risks and wants to change the world! An entrepreneur - is a person who answers the question “what to do?”
