Summary of the SKÅL event held 29.11. at the Ambassador Hotel Prague

Speech

29.11.2018

Ambassador Hotel

 

Welcome

to the Ambassador Hotel. Many thanks to our hosts Eva Dvořáková and Alena Dytrychová and their team. Thank you for accommodating us again. It was always a great experience and hopefully not the last one !

Todays guests are:

Miloš Kutlák GM Hotel DUO

Petr Fišer, GM Duplex

Tomasz Janczak, Organiser of "Marketing to China" Conference Prague and

Benke Aikell which I believe does not need to be introduced to you anymore

 

What´s Skål all about ?

This question is often raised and answered by members individual and variously interpreted. Some whant to experinece the friendship of the fellow Skålleagues. Others see it as a platform for communication and exchange of ideas. If oyu ask me, It´s a little pit of both. Our motto is „doing business among friends“.

However, as all the clubs on this earth there is one simple answer. Each club is only as good as its members are. You can only get out what you put in. It´s the same as any other partnership. I suggest to ask our members.

 

Todays presentation

will be done by our Young Skål team consisiting of Fabian Strecker and Jan HOUŠKA. They are planning to organise next year a YS get-together in Prague. No doubt you will learn something about this in the following presentation. Many thanks, well done. Very much appreciated !  YS-prezentace-2018_1.pdf

Special event on 16th November 2018

I think I can proudly say that this event with prior visit to the Muzeum Karlova mostu, followed by two boat rides was a success. It was a great event and I think that all present enjoyed it very much.

 

Guest speakers / presentations

We try, as every year, to make our events as interesting as possible by finding appropriate guest speakers and presenters. My appeal goes to everyone to propose interesting personalities and topics. It should not be forgotten either that we call our members to introduce themselves and their companies under the motto “let me introduce myself”

 

Coming up General Elections

Next year is an election year in the club. All those people who are looking to stand for a position on the board should register in time with our clubs General Secretary Jiří Matoušek.

Further details about th eregistration procedures will follow in good time.

Joke of the month -

The Irish never hesitate to come to the aid of their fellow Irish. Shortly after take-off aboard an Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to Boston, the head flight attendant nervously said, “ I don´t know how this happened but we have 103 passengers on board and unfortunately we received only 40 dinners. I truly appologise for this mistake and inconvenience”. While the passengers muttered among themselves, she continued. “Anyone who is kind enough to give up their meals so someone else can eat will receive free and unlimited drinks for the duration of the flight “. Her next announcement came about 2 hours later. “If anyone is hungry, we still have 40 dinners available”.

What´s left ´to say. Cheers……… but before the YS presentation and without any further delay let´s raise our glasses for the Skål Int.Toast

To all the Skålleagues everywhere

 

HEALTH * HAPPINESS * FRIENDSHIP * LONG LIFE * SKÅL
