‘Tis the season… for business events

Filed under: Business, Documentary, events — norekefoto @ 4:39 pm

Weddings are predominantly a summer thing here in Sweden, but that’s okay because business usually avoid having their big events in the summer.  Now begins the season for kick-offs, company parties, and gala events.

A few days ago I photographed the Våga Vara Stjärnentreprenör (Dare to be a Star Entrepreneur) gala at Ystad Theater.  I love this place!  It’s like stepping back in time and into a Verdi opera.

There were even some token men, courtesy of the event’s sponsors.

Isabella Löwengrip

The headline speaker was Isabella Löwengrip, otherwise known as the blogger Blondinbella.  I was pleasantly surprised with her.  At the age of 14 she was a bullied kid who started to blog about her fantasy life.  Now, at 20, she is one of Sweden’s most successful businesswomen.

The evening concluded with the presentation of this year’s Star Entrepreneur: Annakarin Sjöberg.

Bröllop är mest en sommar sak här i sverige, men det gör inget eftersom företag brukar undviker att ha sina stora evenemang på sommaren.  Nu börjar säsongen för kick-offs, företagsfester, och jubileer.

För några dagar sedan fotograferade jag Våga vara stjärnentreprenör galan på Ystads Teater.  Lokalen är fantastisk!  Det känns som att man lever i en Verdi opera.
