Thursday 28 March 17:45 – Tea Tasting Challenge!

Want to use your English skills, meet new people and learn something new about tea? Join the after work tea challenge – no experience necessary! 

We’ll provide tea, sandwiches and friendly and a welcoming atmosphere.
 
The evening will begin with a brief introduction to tea from local tea sommelier Harriet Endean, who will explain what to look out for when tasting teas. In teams we will taste six different types of tea, make our own tasting notes and then compare what we discovered. 
 
During the evening we’ll hear some hot tips on how to brew the perfect cup of tea and hear more about teas from different cultures. We’ll round up the evening with a chance to mingle and share some of our own tea stories with each other. 
 
Harriet Endean is an independent tea sommelier and cultural anthropologist from Great Britain. 
She runs bespoke tea workshops and writes articles and tasting notes for independent companies.

Thursday 24 January 17:30 – Inspiration Evening!

Let us inspire you!

Three great speakers, lots of ideas, inspiration and activities to get you going in 2019 – you won’t want to miss this energising event! A warm welcome to our guest speakers* 

Veronika Nesverova – PhD student, blogger, entrepreneur

Veronika is a Ph.D. student in biochemistry at Lund University who is never satisfied with doing just one thing. On the side of her research she has opened and closed one company, founded an NGO in Lund organizing regular PechaKucha Nights, rented part of a field and started growing her own vegetables and put various challenges on herself. Right now she is testing life without sugar. She will talk about why everybody needs a side project.

Christian Altenius of Citypolarna 

Citypolarna.se is a Swedish social activity website where you meet new friends at all kinds of activities. The concept is simple: invite people to join you for a “fika”, play some “innebandy” och get out there in the woods for some serious hiking at the “Skåneleden” 🙂 Perfect if you are new to a city – and if you want to practise your Swedish as most of the users are Swedes! With more than 200 000 visits at the activities IRL since 2006, Citypolarna has become Sweden’s most popular website for social activities. Welcome to “log out and join in” at one of the 250 activities / month! 
 

Zenia Nielsen – Global Speaker, Author & Thriving Entrepreneur

Zenia Nielsen has a clear and definite burning desire to create opportunities and platforms where people get to identify their inner strength & powers, their genuine potential & calling, their true passion, and transform it into physical, mental and economic richness.

“I believe that deep down in our core, we all are driven by unconditional love and we are all here to thrive, not to “fight and survive”. And my mission is to deconstruct life as it is, demolishing all of our fears and low frequency feelings, to unfold what really matters.”

We hope you can join us!

*Due to scheduling conflicts, there has been a slight change in our guest speakers – thanks, Zenia, for stepping in!
