Thanksgiving 2019

Thanksgiving 2019

Last week was the occasion for many of us to celebrate Thanksgiving. Even though Cambodia’s weather has plenty of sun to share, this family-oriented holiday is, for Canadians, the dawn of Autumn. 

Thanks to our main sponsor, Dara Hotels, who arranged a unique catering around this Canadian holiday’s themed menu. As well as the Canadian International School of Phnom Penh for hosting this event. We hope to see you all very soon, and again, on behalf of the CanCham, we thank you for coming and making this event a success.

La semaine dernière a été l’occasion pour beaucoup d’entre nous de célébrer l’Action de grâce. Même si le Cambodge nous gâtent de 12 mois d’été, cette fête familiale est, pour les Canadiens, l’aube de l’automne.

Un remerciement spécial à notre commanditaire principal, Dara Hotels, qui a organisé un menu unique autour de la thématique de cette fête canadienne, ainsi qu’à la Canadian International School of Phnom Penh pour nous avoir reçu dans ses locaux. Nous espérons vous revoir tous très bientôt et, encore une fois, au nom de la CanCham, nous vous remercions de votre présence et d’avoir fait de cet événement une réussite.

Women in Business (WIBKH) Event: Creating Your Personal Tagline

Women in Business (WIBKH) Event: Creating Your Personal Tagline

Last week at our WIBKH (Women in Business in Cambodia) event “Creating Your Own Personal Tagline” hosted by AusCham, BritCham and CanCham, we were encouraged by the 71 participants who joined in for a night engaging in various activities led by Nadzrin Wahab, a Professional Learning Facilitator and Partner of THe Capacity Specialists!

Nadzrin presented on various aspects of Creating One’s personal tagline and had participants try these out in small groups.

It was a fun filled night of laughter and lots of conversations as both Khmer and Expat women from from many different sectors within the Cambodian business community practised and shared their individual taglines with each other over canapes, wine and soft drinks.

A special thank you to our gold Sponsor Prince Bank for their sponsorship of this entire event and also to The Capacity Specialist for sponsoring our presenter for the evening.
