Meet your Trainer

David CantMy name is David Cant and I am a fluent Russian speaker. I have had over 20 years of experience in training companies to improve their sales, communication skills and cultural awareness.

Russia has been my whole career. Starting in the late 1980s, I worked as the USSR representative for a USA trading company. Based in Moscow, I rose to the position of CIS Director and ran their Russian office through some of the most turbulent times in Russia’s recent past.

In the mid-nineties, I returned to the UK and became an Export Promoter, seconded to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), advising UK companies how to do business in Russia.

There followed a period of seven years as MD of the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce (RBCC), where I opened their Moscow office, built a new team, expanded the Chamber’s range of activities and events, and trebled their turnover.

Additionally, I have 2 publications on Business in Russia, both well reviewed.

Why do you need to know this?

I want to prove to you that I know Russia, not only from a cultural aspect from having lived their and worked with Russians throughout my career, but also as a practical, ear-to-the-ground, business-experienced trainer. My knowledge of the practicalities of living and doing business in Russia is almost unparalleled and you can be sure that the training I provide will be up-to-date and relevant, not just from some dusty textbook.

"I have known David for some years, and we have an excellent business relationship. He is always ready for a challenge, even if it scares him, and thankfully, he has never let us down. His core values of transparency, integrity and hard work have clearly been embraced by other members of the team. He is an internationally renowned workshop facilitator. His capabilities as an instructor have resulted in our clients requesting his services worldwide."
