Serge Starenko

Serge Starenko is an entrepreneur with a solid background in software development and business administration.

While working with these slides, he hadn't found any professional presentation templates on the market at that time. Sensing a need, Serge organized and coordinated to create an effective team. He still controls all the processes and is totally engaged in strategic planning and project development. In this conversation, Serge talks about the Chart and Diagram templates available on the PoweredTemplate site.
