Towa Sundström, alumni coordinator at Hanken, tells us about their recent alumni event in London:
“Hanken arranged its second international Alumni Day and first alumni event outside the Nordic countries in London on February 29th 2008. The successful event gathered 70 Hanken alumni from the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden and Finland.
The alumni event kicked off with a seminar at Goldman Sachs International. The days keynote speaker was Stora Enso’s Deputy CEO Hannu Ryöppönen. In the afternoon the alumni had the opportunity to take part in different workshops in management and finance.
The alumni networking continued in the evening at a cocktail party in Iittala’s recently opened store at Regent Street and during a festive dinner party in the heart of London. The Alumni Day in London was a perfect opportunity for expatriates to get together and network. Hanken’s first international alumni event was held in Stockholm in 2006, the next one will be held in 2009, also in Stockholm.”
