Alexandra has a strong passion for protocol and international relations. Hence, after graduating from Moscow State University of Foreign Affairs, she started working at the Executive Office of the President of the Russian Federation specifically in the Protocol Department. This precious experience allowed her to gain knowledge in respect of State visits, events organisation as well as protocol aspects. Apart from protocol and international relations, Alexandra has always been fascinated by International Sport Events since she was a teenager. As a result, she decided to take part in the XIX Olympic Winter Games 2002 in Salt Lake City (USA) as a volunteer. In 2008, with the ambition to tailor all the interests into one career path, Alexandra managed to join the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games Organising Committee as Head of Protocol Department, leading the Sochi team from the beginning of the planning process till Organising Committee’s dissolution stage.

Right after the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi, Alexandra was invited to become an IOC expert in Protocol. Her job was to share her knowledge with Future Organising Committees by participating in Project Reviews and Site Inspections visits on a regular basis. In 2015, Alexandra was promoted to be Director of Protocol Department at FIFA 2018 Russia World Cup Organising Committee. It has become a great opportunity for her to implement her previous knowledge and overcome new challenges such as providing protocol and guest management services for VIP and VVIP guests in 11 host-cities and 12 stadiums.

Being one of the founders of the IQ Protocol company, Alexander has been working within the area of international and domestic protocol. Their key projects are Opening and Closing Ceremonies protocol elements for the XXIX Winter Universidad of 2019 in Krasnoyarsk, as well as agreement signing ceremonies an overall protocol support during Major Business events such as St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and etc.
