Event description

Description

On Friday 17th May at 7.30pm participants are invited to gather in the iconic Flagship store of Victorinox in New Bond Street where they will be introduced to Neil Heritage. Neil is a motivational speaker who will talk about his time in the army, losing both legs following a suicide bomb attack and his remarkable recovery.

Participants will be inspired by his resilience and his attempts to be the first person with his disability to summit the iconic Matterhorn in the Alps.

Throughout the evening participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of Swiss wine or Swiss beer and taste some unique Swiss cheeses whilst admiring the exhibition of professional alpine photographer Fiona Bunn. The evening is kindly supported by Swiss Quality UK and Fossuk (Federation of the Swiss Societies in the UK).

We are pleased to announce the presence of His Excellency Ambassador Fasel alongside representatives from the Swiss Embassy and from the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. With great pleasure, we will also be welcoming the director of the Organisation of Swiss Abroad (OSA), Ariane Rustichelli and the UK delegates to the Council of the Swiss Abroad.

The event is free but registration by Monday 13th May is necessary.

THE EVENT IS NEARLY SOLD OUT!

Doors will open at 6.30pm for Drinks and Light Food, followed by the talk at 7:30pm.


This event is part of the upcoming 54th Congress of the Swiss Societies in the UK which will take place in London from the 17th to the 19th of May 2019. To learn more about the 54th Congress please visit www.swiss-societies.co.uk
