Visit of attendees from the Women Leaders Global Forum
The Women Leaders Global Forum 2018 was held in the Harpa Conference Centre from 26–28 November, with over 400 women leaders from 80 countries attending.
To celebrate the Global Forum, HB Grandi invited a group of attendees to lunch in the Marshall Building together with women from the Association of Women in the Fisheries Industry (Samtök kvenna í sjávarútvegi).
The menu consisted of redfish and cod from the vessel Helga María AK – 16 landed earlier that morning. The fish was especially delicious, and the view over the harbour was quite stunning.
Guðmundur Kristjánsson, CEO of HB Grandi, welcomed the group. Heiðrún Lind Marteinsdóttir, CEO of Fisheries Iceland (SFS), and Agnes Guðmundsdóttir, Chairman of the Association of Women in the Fisheries Industry, also spoke at the luncheon.
This was an extremely enjoyable visit, and despite the large number of guests that visit HB Grandi, it is not every day that we get to meet leaders from so many countries.
It should be noted that HB Grandi is one of the sponsors of the Women Leaders Global Forum and a proud supporter of this important issue.
