The World Class Speaking Nights are informal and fun events for people interested in improving their speaking, communication and presentation skills—featuring special guest speakers, World Class Speaking alumni, drinks and a dining buffet.

From Sweden - the country that brought you ABBA, Skype, IKEA and H&M, among other innovative creations - now comes Spotify! Spotify provides commercial music streaming to your phone, computer, tablet and more, of Digital Rights Management-protected music from Sony, EMI, Warner, and other recording labels.

Spotify has in just a few years has grown from a start-up to the world's largest music streaming service with more than 25 million users, and rapidly adding more by the week. In his presentation Hannes Graah will talk about how a young company from a small country could become so successful globally, in a short space of time. And particularly what digital and other marketing strategies the company has employed, and how they engage and keep in touch with their customers.

The keynote presentation is followed by a short introduction to Argentina's flagship white wine - Torrontes - of which Argentina is the world's number one producer. This is a fresh and aromatic wine—which goes well with Asian spicy food and perfect for cooling down in the hot weather! It will feature a wine from the winery of Susana Balbo—one of Argentina's top winemakers. So don't miss the wine tasting!

You will also have an opportunity to win a Free copy of the World Class Speaking book and a bottle of Argentinian Torrontes wine!
