Konstantin Orlov, Russia, is a Financial Management Executive and Senior Consultant. He focuses on design and delivery of integrated human capital solutions for organizations all over Europe and North America. “I am driven by helping people achieve better results by opening their minds – so that they can start acting differently”, he says.
Konstantin has been working with Celemi simulations for ten years and is a dedicated Celemi Solution Provider.
He first got into the training industry when he worked as finance manager at “Business Training” Russia. In 2004, he was given the task to run an internal finance program, and he – of course – wanted this program to be engaging and fresh. Browsing the internet for quite some time, he finally stumbled upon Celemi Apples & Oranges™ on a South African website.
“I didn’t really look forward to flying all the way from to South Africa”, Konstantin says. “But, when I called them, I was relieved to know that the creators of the simulation – Celemi – were to be found in Sweden.”
Konstantin held and facilitated Celemi Apples & Oranges on behalf of “Business Training”.“It was a great success!”, he says. Konstantin soon started to facilitate Celemi solutions on his own.
“Since 2004, I have run more than 750 Celemi seminar days with about 10,000 participants!”, he says with a smile.
There are several reasons why Konstantin enjoys working with Celemi, facilitating the solutions:
“Firstly, I think that the simulations are extremely solid, which I am very proud to present in the market”, he says. “Secondly, I benefit from the international network that Celemi and its partners’ offers. Having access to this world-encompassing network and experience is a brilliant part of the Celemi society. Thirdly, Celemi itself is a partner that is very easy to work with. Celemi coworkers all have a very open mind and solution-oriented attitude. Any problems are dealt with as they come – and I enjoy that.”
When asked to pick a favorite among the Celemi simulations he hesitates:
“It is hard”, he says. “I really like Celemi Livon™ for its high pace and dynamics. But I must say that my preferred simulation remains Celemi Apples and Oranges™”.
“In just one day, it actually gives you working finance knowledge! Before I got acquainted with this business simulation, I didn’t believe it would be possible to help participants earn experience at this speed..!”
