Chaslau Koniukh was born on March 14, 1985 in Belarus, in the city of Grodno. In 1999, he graduated from high school with good results. From his childhood, Chaslau’s father convinced him to go to military school in order to make a career as an officer in the future. But Chaslau himself always liked mathematics and numbers, so his personal choice was economics, marketing and project management.
After he entered Grodno State College and studied there for 4 years, Chaslau met his first partners in business marketing. That meeting was a turning point in the young man’s life, because it directly changed his thinking and outlook on life. After college, Chaslau gave up a good job as an economist at a private firm and moved to Minsk in 2004. In the Belarusian capital, Koniukh and his partner opened their own advertising agency.
Chaslau Koniukh’s education and career
After working for six months, the advertising business did not bring the desired results. It became obvious to the partners that the lack of experience and knowledge played a key role in their failure. Having closed the firm and going their own way, Chaslau found himself without money and a source of income, which forced him to go to Europe to earn money as an ordinary worker for 2 years.
The desire for a successful life and the first defeat in the business only strengthened his motivation to move and develop further. Having earned a small capital and gained good life experience, Chaslau in 2006 returned to his native city Grodno, where he began to actively study and attend business training courses. Chaslau took internships in well-known financial companies in the UK and Switzerland in 2015-2018 as a financial analyst. Since 2019, he has also focused on the work of a commodity trader, import and export of goods, as well as marketing and project management.

In addition to his active business activities, he was also engaged in educational activities – he gave lectures and conducted online training.
