Vadim Kotelnikov (VadiK) inspirational speaker business trainer,

The ability to create a great first impression is a strategic key to success. The first impression is created within seconds and lasts for years.


A first impression is a mental image of you that another person forms when s/he first encounters you.




As the brain-father of 'First Impressionism', I started by teaching it by example. Below is my 30-second first-impression video.










First Impressionism

'First Impressionism' as a social art was introduced by VadiK at the 3rd World Innompic Games 2019.

Amazing and charmingly different performances of all contestants at World Innompic Games 2019 and World Innomic Games inspired creation of FIRST IMPRESSIONISM as a vital new art that helps people achieve much more both in life and business.
