Tatiana Vishnevskaya is a famous Russian TV personality, producer and business woman based in Dubai since 2014.
TATIANA, I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING YOUR ACTIVITIES FOR A WHILE NOW. I SEE A LOT OF CREATIVITY, PASSION AND HAPPINESS IN YOU. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF, WHO ARE YOU?
I am a media producer & a business woman from Moscow. Living in Dubai. Born in Hungary, where my father was working at that time in a Soviet Union Military base. Most of my childhood i spent in Europe. I speak English, German and Russian. Learning Italian at the moment. I got my 2 Television high educations in Moscow: tv-presenter and top media manager. Built my media career at Moscow federal TV Channels and commercial business radio stations. In 2014 opened media business in Dubai. Since then creating my projects there.
HOW DO YOU GET YOUR SMILE? YOU SEEM TO RADIATE SUCH POSITIVE ENERGY AND SUCCESS?
Positive thinking is as easy as breathing. For others, it is a real challenge to themselves. I got it as a habit from childhood. I have worked very hard to achieve where I’m today. I can honestly say that I am extremely happy with my profession and the great network of people that surround me.
IF I MAY SAY, YOUR CHARISMA IS ALMOST ADDICTIVE, IS THIS SOMETHING YOU WORK ON OR ARE YOU LUCKY IN THE SENSE THAT IT COMES NATURALLY TO YOU ?
Thank you! I guess you could say both. My star sign is Leo. This sign likes to achieve big goals. I am passionate about constant self improvement. I was born in a family of a military man. My parents were dedicated to giving me an excellent education. Plus, I have been in media since 2005. I have had very good coaches in life as well as in my profession.
Ever since I was a young child my parents knew that I had a keen interest with having media profession. From my mother’s side of the family all women had creative careers.
My mother and grandmother were lecturers at the university. My grand mother was an actress. My great grand mother was a teacher of Russian language and literature at Imperial Institute of Noble Maidens in Moscow. She had an award from Empress Maria (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Feodorovna_(Sophie_Dorothea_of_Württemberg) for her brilliant teaching skills that she implemented on her students.
DO YOU FEEL YOU HAVE A GOAL THAT YOU HAVEN’T ACCOMPLISHED YET?
I think, it is a human nature to want to continually succeed and improve.
At the beginning of my media career my focus was to become a TV presenter and to work prime time in the political and economic news. That was my biggest dream and after a lot of hard work I managed to achieve that position.
I moved step by step from one TV channel to another. I worked in 2 commercial business radio stations Business FM (https://www.bfm.ru/) and Kommersant Fm (https://www.kommersant.ru/fm)observing economic markets.
Finishing the air on the radio station, I was in a rush to my next project on TV. It was so exiting. Plus, the level of happiness that I experienced had no limit. In 2013 I started working on RBC TV with 100 million audience in the CIS countries https://www.rbc.ru/
My life looked more than complete. But I felt as if I was stuck in high tech castle. Plus, Moscow is known for massive road traffic.
So, I developed a new dream. I felt that I needed to live in warm climate, by the sea and to grow in my career further and I am proud to have achieved it. Then I began to have new dreams…I felt extremely inspired and I followed this inspiration, until it revealed love and joy. In the end, I came to a conclusion that i can live anywhere on this planet, but in harmony.
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE IF YOU HAD THE MAGIC WAND FOR THE POSITION / ROLE OF THE WOMEN IN DUBAI AND THE EMIRATES?
I am a practical person and I don’t believe in magic, I believe in common sence and if you put in the work it takes your dreams can be achieved.
Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is a very wise person. He opened so many opportunities to the women of Dubai to live, study and work in a safe and smart multi cultural society. Both to local and expats. I wish every woman to transform her dream into a goal, visualize it and make it real. To be unique and I extraordinary. Plus, never forget about their roots. As our roots made us who we are. Who we will become. It’s completely up to us.
CAN YOU PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS HOW TO BECOME A LEADER?
There is a famous saying to wish health, wealth and prosperity. And luxury comes from prosperity. I’m a big admirer of Lu Kuan Yu. Who is known as a very successful politician, born in Singapore, Mr.Lee successfully turned Singapore from a third to first world.
„I do not yet know of a man who became a leader as a result of having undergone a leadership course“, Lu Kuan Yu says.
I advise to practice more in your business.
As I’m Russian by origin, I am honored to announce that Russian Emirates Media Group (https://russianemirates.com/) became the first official media partner of the Russian Pavilion at the Expo 2020, Dubai.
Our team will provide comprehensive media support to the Russian Pavilion and with the help of my ‘Magnificent Middle East with Tatiana Vishnevskaya’ (https://youtu.be/zSbsH0ksKHg) media project that you can find in YouTube as well, I will show the world WHAT AN amazing country the UAE really is.
