Events in April

This month I will be putting myself out there and speaking at a couple of events. I have listed them all in this blog post but you can also find them on I on Image’s events-page

On the weekend of 14th – 15th April I will give a workshop on finding your best colours at Finnish Womens Day NL in Hotel Bilderberg Résidence Groot Heideborgh in Garderen. This is a very special edition of the annual event as it’s the organization’s 30th anniversary. Congratulations are in order!

I have covered the previous events in my blog and you can read the stories here. Word of warning: the 2017 coverage contains a fan pic… As usual this event was sold out in just a few weeks but I will be posting pics of the event on my Instagram. Stay tuned and follow me already today!

Greetings from SPARK 2016

Last month I had the pleasure to join an amazing group of speakers at SPARK 2016 conference that was held at We Work Metropool on 14th June 2016.

Practicing the art of public speaking

This was my first public speaking event in years so you can only imagine how nervous I was. Last year I volunteered at the event and got so inspired that I set myself a goal to speak there the next year.

When I found out that I was accepted to speak at the event this year my feelings ranged from sheer excitement to paralyzing fear of failure.

How could I possibly measure up with the other speakers who were so much more experienced than I was? The Spark organization must have read my thoughts because us speakers received a fantastic prepping session from Tara Phillips of Cause & Affect Speeches. Continue reading

Finnish Women’s Day 2016 in Zutphen

A few of weeks ago I traveled to Zutphen for the 28th edition of Finnish Women’s Day. It’s an annual event full of fun and friendship that gathered together 94 Finnish women living in the Netherlands.

 

Meeting Minttu and Sampo Kaulanen

This was my second year in the organizing committee and a truly wonderful experience! The event’s special guests were Finland’s craziest shop keeper couple, social media phenomenon from a small village Äkäslompolo in Lapland, Sampo and Minttu Kaulanen of Jounin Kauppa.

They spoke us about their stellar success, stamina and perseverance, family life and love under the event’s theme, untranslatable quintessentially Finnish term, SISU.
