Notes from the Editor
Hello Everyone,
This will be my last message as the Editor of the monthly newsletters and as the Director of PR & Communications.
It seems a fitting tribute to me as we feature the highlights and awards of a very successful world congress held in Africa for the first time in this edition.

Message from the CEO
We returned from Mombasa, Kenya a few days ago, from a congress which has left a very positive balance and during which the General Assembly approved the necessary, urgent digital transformation for Skål.

This decision will allow us to begin working on this exciting project which will completely modernise the organisation.

Executive Committee 2018| 19
We have a vibrant, hardworking team that represents all the regions of the world as well as demographically perfect with 3 males and 3 females on our Executive Committee. I have matched the skill set of each Director with the different portfolios which means that passion and focus will always lead to success.
