October 2022 Newsletter

11 October 2022

Dear Members,

I hope that you are enjoying the autumn colors surrounding us at the moment. The days are getting shorter and it is slowly getting darker as we move towards the winter season.  All the more reason for us to get together and enjoy each others company.

Our October luncheon will take place on October 11th 2022 at 11.30 at the Hilton Hotel Kalastajatorppa. The theme in October has traditionally been fashion. The Board decided this year not to run a fashion show.  Instead we will have two interesting speakers.

Our first speaker will be Laila Snellman, CEO of Paparazzi Model Agency.  She will tell us about her work with Fashion Model Management.

Our second speaker will be Elina Siira, CEO and founder of AIDA impact which is a Helsinki based jewelry studio.  AIDA impact will also bring a collection of their jewelry to display at our luncheon which gives us a possibility to make purchases for those who wishes to do so.

We will continue the theme of Fashion through out the year with company visits among other things.  Please visit our website for more information.

The Programme committee is offering the following events for October:
