Swiss Business Focus at Kyiv Networking Evening
In October, Fryday Kyiv teamed up with the Embassy of Switzerland in Ukraine and a selection of leading Swiss companies. The result was an excellent evening of networking with a clear focus on developing Swiss-Ukrainian business relations. The evening was attended by a selection of top international and Ukrainian business and diplomatic professionals who enjoyed an assortment of Swiss produce and three exclusive speeches from top industry experts. The first speaker was Guillaume Scheurer, Switzerland’s Ambassador to Ukraine and Moldova, who spoke of ‘uniting Swiss and Ukrainian businesses’. Second to the stage was the Managing Director of Nestle Ukraine and Moldova, Ansgar Bornemann who summarised his talk with the title ‘150 years of Nestle: success factors that apply to Ukraine’. The final speaker of the evening was Patricia Shmorhun-Hawrylyshyn, co-founder and partner of the Porcelain Medical Group who told the audience of her journey as a Swiss entrepreneur in Ukraine. October’s Fryday W evening took place at Porcelain, a Swiss-Ukrainian medical group established in Kyiv in 1995. Fryday W will return on 16 November with Christian Dons Christensen, Denmark’s Ambassador to Ukraine, Georgia and Armenia.
