Glögg mingle at Arnall Golden Gregory

Thank you to all who took the time to join SACC-GA and Arnall Golden Gregory last night for a Swedish inspired holiday mingle.

Delicious saffron buns (lussebullar), gingerbread cookies and wonderful christmas candy was catered by Anna Bringle at Swedish Dreamish. We hope you all enjoyed the evening, made some new connections and/or got time to chat with friends and colleagues in the Swedish-American community.

Happy Holidays,

the SACC-GA team

 

 

 

SACC-GA Wine-Working

SACC-GA’s wine-working 2017 took place on November 16th at the SACC-GA office space at SPACES Midtown.

Wine-guru Brandon Tai, with over 10 years experience in the industry, presented a wide variety of wines and we all tried to “taste the price”. We learned about how a fine wine tastes like it was painted with a fine brush with intricate layers of flavors, while a more inexpensive one might taste more blunt and as if the painter used wider brush strokes. It was a great evening and we wish to thank all of you who attended and participated in the tasting. We hope you enjoyed it and learned as much as we did!

 

WTCA Monthly Spotlight: Sweden

World Trade Center Atlanta held it’s Monthly Spotlight themed “Sweden and the U.S. – Blending the best of both cultures” on October 19th.

Honorary Consul of Sweden, SACC-GA Board Member and Chairman Emeritus Tom Rosseland gave a great speech about Swedish-ness, Swedish business and export.
We also got to hear a great panel discussion on differences and similarities between Swedish and American business culture. Thank you to Ivan Turk, representing SACC-GA corporate member Nefab, for giving us your perspective on the pro’s and con’s of working in a Swedish company in the US.

Open House at Spaces Midtown

SACC-GA and Spaces Midtown would like to thank everyone who visited our offices on Friday for a cup of coffee, a cinnamon bun and a chat. We had a great time and hope you did too!

If you by any chance could not make it on Friday, or you just can’t get enough of SACC-GA, you are welcome to stop by anytime.

Thank you for attending SACC-GA’s Summer Afterwork
