Finnish Women’s Day 2018 – 30th Anniversary Edition

 

This year’s Finnish Women’s Day NL-event was held on 14th – 15th April 2018 in Hotel Bilderberg Résidence Groot Heideborgh in Garderen, and it marked the 30th anniversary of Finnish Women’s Day NL.

The event is an annual weekend event full of fun, friendship, learning, networking and relaxing. This  year this very special edition gathered together 120 Finnish women living mainly in the Netherlands, but we also had participants who traveled all the way from Belgium and Finland to connect with old and new friends. For me this was the 6th time I attended and had a wonderful time, as expected!

Here is our group photo. I am happy to report that nobody fell in the pond during the photo shoot! The red goodie bags full of amazing surprises (including a discount voucher from I on Image) were sponsored by Jaatinen L6S Consulting.

Finnish Women’s Day 2017 in Garderen

Last weekend  I attended the 29th edition of Finnish Women’s Day in Garderen. It’s an annual event full of fun and friendship that gathered together an all-time record amount of 120 Finnish women living in the Netherlands and Belgium. There was also a nice amount of ladies who have lived in the Netherlands before and wanted to come and see their friends again.

This year I gave up my spot in the organizing committee to wonderful new talent and fresh ideas and attended the event as a guest for change. Of course I on Image was a proud sponsor of the event and donated 3 gift vouchers in the immensely popular raffle where the prizes are getting every year more and more amazing.

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.
