(N.K., editor, Moscow. )
“I came to a WISE convention for the first time.
This summer my life wasn’t going very well. My condition was as well on a low level. I was stuck in routine. And one day I got another mailing about the coming convention. And I realized that now is the time to get out of this condition and something about it. And WISE convention is a good reason.
I decided to go to the convention and life started to go better. And my condition started to go better.
On the day of the trip everything was ready, and I was ready.
On the convention I got tens of times more than what I was expecting.
I am impressed. I got new data. I got new cognitions and realizations.
Thanks to the organizers.
I will definitely come to the next convention.”
(A.Z., entrepreneur, Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarckiy Kray. )
“Thank you, WISE! For dedication to your purpose: “to unite like-minded people so that we all together could make the world a better place”.
I didn’t like that different lecturers were giving their seminars simultaneously. I would like to listen to all of them, but didn’t have the possibility.”
(D.B., director of “Khimiya and Technologiya” company, Almaty. )
“This convention has shown me the society, in which I want to live and where I want to contribute to. In my ideal scene there is already the implementation of the Model of Admin Know-How and achieving the status of a WISE consultant. Thank you very much to all those who participated in the organization of this convention – you are doing a great job!
When I come home I will change my company, myself, my environment, staff and life in general!
Thank you for a lot of different cognitions!”
(V.S., owner of the “Fabrika Reklamy” company, Feodosia. )
“I was unexpectedly impressed by the scope of the event, by the amount of information. I saw successful people who are not burdened by business problems. While talking to such people you start to realize, that business is really a please, communication, if you know how to create it and what attitude you should have towards it.
Now I have a goal, I have a road. Now I am already standing on it, I only need to reach my goal by moving with a very high speed, and then to run even further, to new stars.
It is great, now I have something to do.”
(A.S., owner of the “Povolzhye” company, Ulyanovsk. )
“Wonderful 3 days together with the lucky, prosperous and successful beautiful people! This is my first time on the convention and I am happy to be in this family! I feel like I was sleeping and now have woken up – so much new, useful, practical information, exact tools for hiring, good administration, setting goals, time management…br> Now I exactly know what I want, where I am going and with whom I want to go and what I want to do!

I wish you luck, health and happiness!”
(A.R., director general of the “On Clmte Moldova” company, Kishinev. )

Seminars held by the speakers on the convention were very useful.”
(O.P., owner of a “Mechta” company, Kirov. )

I wish you to reach your goal and have 1000 participants next year!!!”
(T.S., executive director of the “Executive formula” company, Saint Petersburg. )
“Implementation of management tools is the most important thing in a business, even in a small one.
Right now, 5 years later, when I look back I see that then the business owner has made very right decisions about the implementation of the proper technology despite the protests of staff, no desire to keep statistics and plan own work. By making the data on management technology known, the business owner could create interest about his idea amongst the division heads. We felt the need for study in order to be a part of the common work and the success which was waiting for us in the future.
Participation in the WISE convention is another opportunity to be a part of a group of like-minded people, to communicate with successful people, to applaud the winners and be happy for them, and to feel as a part of everyone’s success and to get recharged with energy and data for the whole following year, as well as to become more successful by applying the data which were given to us by famous speakers.
I wish success to the WISE office in organizing future conventions, so that we could have an opportunity to meet and share our success and experience!”
(E.S., finance executive of the “Lombard Saltus” company, Izhevsk. )
“Being here for 3 days in this atmosphere has given me energy for heroic deeds. It is great to start acting at once and putting to life all of the ideas, which I got during these 3 days.
I am very happy with the results I have achieved (in my company) during the 5 years, when I was implementing the admin technology. I am very grateful to the organizers of the convention that you gather successful people together.
I especially value the love towards LRH and careful safeguarding of his technology by all WISE consultants. I love you!!!
See you next time!!!”
(T.L., founder of the “Snegiri” company, Yurga. )
“WISE convention is always a place to meet like-minded people, to share experience, to listen to speakers. Here you recharge your energy, which you take home and start to use in your business.

“Convention feels me with awe. There is a lot of positive, here you can meet new people and have pleasant meetings with old friends. Some of business related problems were solved here very fast, while before they were not able to be resolved since July.
A lot of contacts with upstat people helped us to find a new business and solve the problem of the expansion of the old one. The speakers are so competent, I am eternally grateful. When you know the data, when you know that they are correct, but the environment is constantly trying to prove you that those data don’t work, then it seems that you can’t change anything for the better.
But it is not like that!!! This was me who didn’t fully understand the data, did not fully apply or started to have doubts. Thank you very much for giving me back my faith to all speakers and LRH and the organizers of the WISE convention.”
