Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

Finland’s First 100 Years Presented by Aila Karpio.

Date: Wednesday, November 8, 2017 – 6 pm to 9 pm

Join us as we celebrate Finland’s first 100 years, and maybe get some insight into what’s up for the next 100 years. Aila Karpio, Honorary Vice-Consul for Finland in Vancouver, has put together a presentation that should be interesting and insightful. Many of us who know Aila, from many years in the Scandinavian Business Club of BC, are very much looking forward to this event.

Aila Karpio worked many years in the travel and tourism industries, both in her native Finland and Canada, until she started her own company in 1996 in Vancouver (Spets Association Management).

Aila is a natural organizer who can quickly streamline and update a not-for-profit association’s operations. She is an expert team builder, whether building a board of directors or recruiting volunteers for an event. Due to her personal values, Aila is an advocate of the triple bottom line: people, planet, profits.

Guests are always welcome! Invite colleagues, clients, friends and family.
