Skal Meeting 30/01/2018
Another successful Skal meeting!
31th October 2017
Skal Monthly meeting.
Thanks to all who came to the monthly meeting, various topics were raised and debated, including an introduction from Jordan and his colleague from the StepforBugaria foundation (for more information click this link)
A very interesting round table discussion about employment in the hospitality trade, how it is becoming increasingly difficult and how to try to resolve it by introducing young people into the trade.
We were introduced to the new website and would like to thank James and his team at Opportunity Bulgaria for all their hard work. We have some final tweaks before we make the website live and start to ask all members for input.
Finally a special thanks to Mr Christoph Glaser (GM Hilton Sofia) and his dedicated team for hosting the event and inviting all attendees to dinner and drinks during the meeting.
It is vitally important that all members try to attend these meetings as the more heads around the table the more interesting it gets.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the next meeting.

Interesting Facts about Bulgaria
In Bulgaria, yoghurt is everywhere. You'll find it dolloped on falafel wraps, slathered on moussaka and lined up in supermarket refrigerators. It is the basis of traditional Bulgarian dishes such as tarator, a cold soup made of yoghurt, water, cucumber, walnuts and herbs; and snezhanka, a salad consisting of yoghurt, cucumbers, garlic and dill.
