We will serve Swedish Fika in the inter­mis­sion

With their voic­es mov­ing togeth­er in tight har­mo­ny or inter­twin­ing in a whirling tem­po, the high­ly acclaimed folk vocal group Kongero draws tra­di­tion­al Swedish music out of the past and into the present. A con­cert with Kongero will take the lis­ten­er on a fab­u­lous jour­ney, an all-embrac­ing Scan­di­na­vian folk music expe­ri­ence. Blue notes, amaz­ing vocal polypho­ny, groovy, pow­er­ful, and inti­mate. The band was formed in 2005 and besides doing con­certs they also con­duct well-received work­shops in tra­di­tion­al Swedish vocal music and vocal har­monies.

Kongero has released three albums. The debut ”Om Mikael­ida­gen” in 2008, ”Bakvän­da världen” in 2011, and ”no. 3” in 2014 and their music has been sam­pled, has appeared in movie pro­duc­tions, has fea­tured on a Nax­ox gold album and more. Their fourth album will be released in June 2017, and will be fol­lowed by an exten­sive tour all over Europe and the Amer­i­c­as in 2017.

Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

pre­sent­ed by:  RNOLD SMITH

(Red Robin­son A Ret­ro­spec­tive from a Pio­neer Rock’n Roll DJ Can­celled)

A big chal­lenge for small busi­ness own­ers, self-employed pro­fes­sion­als, and even an employ­ee look­ing for a raise, is answer­ing the ques­tion, “Why you?”. I have asked hun­dreds of peo­ple this ques­tion and the vast major­i­ty don’t pro­vide any use­ful infor­ma­tion that tells me why I should buy from them specif­i­cal­ly. In fact, most peo­ple say some form of the exact same thing! So then, how do you choose between two expe­ri­enced Real­tors, Plumbers or Graph­ic Artists etc.?

Your answer should be spe­cif­ic and con­crete and be tied to what your ide­al cus­tomers care about the most. In this talk I explain how to dif­fer­en­ti­ate your­self so that you become more per­sua­sive and get more cus­tomers with­out spend­ing more mon­ey.

Rnold is a New West­min­ster based busi­ness growth con­sul­tant. He helps his clients acquire new ide­al cus­tomers in the fastest, eas­i­est and cheap­est way pos­si­ble based on their cur­rent cir­cum­stances. Peo­ple work with Rnold because he is fun, has decades of busi­ness devel­op­ment expe­ri­ence and his strate­gies are easy to imple­ment and based in real­i­ty.

He is exec­u­tive direc­tor for the New West­min­ster Cham­ber of Com­merce, the founder of the Busi­ness Col­lab­o­ra­tion Net­work, and Pres­i­dent of the McBride Sap­per­ton Res­i­dents Asso­ci­a­tion.
