March 2008 - Networking Event - Legal Services

Our March event on 27th was another success, the theme was -Legal Services.
We invited a whole 'pack' of lawyers (about 52 of them) from around Kyiv and our guest speaker was Oleg Vysochynskyy, Partner from the law firm Grischenko & Partners, who privided a speech on bank takeovers and mergers in Ukraine.

I think my jokes about lawyers went down OK. None of them threatened legal action against me, so I guess it was acceptable. My favourite joke has to be: What's black and brown and looks good on a lawyer?.....A Doberman Pinscher!! (But some jokes just don't translate so well).

We changed the catering company and were provided with better service, I hope they can maintain the standard. Plus I want to say thanks to Peter Flanaghan who has stepped forward and volunteered to help organise our events and maybe start cleaning up our web site to improve our image. Peter has lived in Ukraine for about 12 years and knows alot about 'The Ukrainian way' of doing things.

Plus we have had more new members joining this month, so things are going according to plan.
Onward and forward.
