The achievements of this Ukrainian businesswoman are impressive not only because of their number but because of their diversity, too. The track records of this young talented woman include such big-name projects for her fellow citizens as “Top-100 Pride and Beauty of Ukraine”, “MICE-tourism”, “Education in Great Britain”, “Charity Calendar”, “Breakfasts in dresses” and production of the monthly glossy business magazine Financoff. Elvira Gavrilova – the business expert, who makes a great contribution to the development and promotion of both Ukraine and its citizens.
“Charity is an integral part of my life”
Elvira, could you tell us about your projects: what is your driver when creating them? What is your inspiration?
E.G. I think it is something different for each project but my main source of inspiration are people. For example, when I design my collections of clothing, I get inspired by the extraordinary beautiful women of Ukraine and do my best to reflect it in my looks. For the Top-100 ratings, these are the most talented people of our country, children and adults. I’m particularly impressed by the children who are real drivers for creating projects that help to discover and develop their talents. The meetings and communication with the successful entrepreneurs and business people bring the moving spirit to my work in MICE – tourism and widening the audience of our glossy business magazine Financoff. I can see the new highs to achieve. I am ready to do everything it takes for Ukraine and its talented citizens to be known and spoken about abroad.
The list of your projects includes charity too, doesn’t it?
E.G.: Yes, helping those in need is an important part of my activity. I believe if you achieved something yourself, it is your duty to help people around. Under the “Help” project, we organize charity events to help sick children and give targeted aid: to multi-child families, people with disabilities, veterans, and many more others. Since last year, we publish the Charity Calendar. This calendar holds images of Ukrainian celebrities and talented children. The shooting for the calendar is participated by politicians, athletes, show-biz stars; the children who appear on the calendar pages are the winners of our project Top-100 “Ukraine’s Future. Children”. The money earned by the calendar sales is sent to the specific needs of the children. Last year it was a boarding school for the hearing-impaired children.
“My aim is to enhance Ukraine’s image in Europe”
Your Instagram page shows you are a keen traveler. How do you manage to combine it with so much work you do?
E.G. The matter is that some of my trips relate to my work. Quite often, I have to fly for photo shooting, interviews, and meetings. Besides, now we expand the geography of our glossy business magazine Financoff. So we make agreements with the overseas representatives on the distribution of this Ukrainian monthly business publication in Europe.
Elvira, thank you for your answers. Best of luck and reaching new highs!
