Infopulse Ukraine Welcomes Guests from Norway
On 26 March 2012, Infopulse welcomed guests from Norway. Norwegians frequenly visit us – we often receive Scandinavian customers and colleagues from EVRY, our Scandinavian mother company. But this time, Infopulse welcomed special guests – students of the Nansen Academy, Lillehammer, Norway.
The Nansen Academy
Infopulse receives the Nansen Academy students for the second time. The Idea – Culture – Society Programme studies the humanities and anthropology, and a large part of its curriculum is traditionally devoted to the Russian culture. It is Kyiv – the cradle of Rus and homeland of many famous people whose works are studied in the Academy – that Norwegian students came to explore. At the initiative of Anatoliy Kyrylyuk, an employee of Infopulse and the Nansen Academy alumni, the students were also invited to visit the company where Norwegian and Ukrainian cultures are closely intertwined.
Kyiv in the eyes of Norwegians
During the three days of their stay in Kyiv, the Nansenians managed to visit the Museum of History, the Museum of Chornobyl, the Museum of Holodomor, a modern art exhibition, a classic ballet and a puppet theatre performance. Walking along the streets, the students gained a better knowledge of Ukrainians, our traditions and mentality, about which they could only judge from books and media before. They noted our openness and amiability.
Welcome to Infopulse Ukraine
The students reserved the last day of their visit for Infopulse. Our employees prepared a number of presentations about Ukraine and the Company’s cooperation with Norway. In the main of part of her presentation, Lyubov Yudenko, HR Director, told some interesting facts about Ukraine and explained how the company exercises its business and cooperates with its Norwegian partners. Anatoliy Kyrylyuk completed the presentation with fascinating examples and, just as last year, surprised the guests by listing Norwegian customers of Infopulse.
And at a traditional Ukrainian dinner after the official part, our guests could share their impressions about the seen and heard.
Inspired by the beauty of the Ukrainian capital and warm welcome, the Nansen Academy students promised to come again next year. And in August, the administrative seminar for the whole faculty of the Academy was decided to be held in Kyiv.
