Nordic Young Professional (NYP) – Entrepreneurial night & speed networking, Nov 2012
On Friday 02 NOV, 2012, The NYP committee of the Nordic Chambers organized an Entrepreneurial & Speed Networking Event at a hidden gem- TenFace Boutique Hotel. It was a successful turnout with more than 90 NYP members and friends, who joined us to catch up with their friends. It was also a good opportunity to gain valuable insights about being an entrepreneur from our speakers.
Upon arrival, the attendees were registered and welcomed by the NYP committee. In addition, delicious ice-cold Carlsberg beer was also provided as a welcome-drink.
The evening started with an inspirational speech from Mr. Steve Cheah, the president and official host of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) in Thailand. Mr. Cheah presented the global campaign for entrepreneurship and continued inspiring the NYP who otherwise might not have considered being an entrepreneur as a career path.
The next speaker was, Mr. Jakob Lykkegaard Pedersen, an innovative young Danish entrepreneur. In his speech, Mr. Pedersen advised the attendees with what one should do and don’t and how to be successful in social media. He ended his speech by telling us that in order to be successful you need to be passionate and love what you are doing.
The evening continued with a very popular Mini Speed Networking, in which the guests exchanged information and made new acquaintances and friends.
Lastly, the event ended with a lucky draw, in which more than 10 prizes were handed out. At the end all participants seemed to be happy with smiling faces.
The NYP committee and Nordic Chambers would like to thank all participants, the speakers, and our sponsors Carlberg, TenFace, Impression, ScanAsia, ItalAsia, and G Four Fine wines for the lucky draw prizes. Last but not least, special thanks to our biggest sponsor TenFace Hotel for the venue, food and all supports for the evening.
