Since June 2015, Svetlana has started working as Membership Officer at the Department of Corporate and External Relations at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS). IISS is a recognised world-leading authority on global security, political risk and military conflicts and is renowned for its annual Military Balance assessment of countries’ armed forces and for its high-powered security summits, such as the Shangri-La Dialogue, where Federica Mogherini and Ashton Carter have given a speech this year. Svetlana believes her MBA has enabled her to open new horizons for professional development. “Thanks to my knowledge gained in LSC and in my previous positions, I work on the Engagement Strategy of the organisation, planning activities to build long-term relationship with our members.”
