A Night With Hagar

Drinks, canapés and a screening of «The Whistle Blower», put on by Hagar, an NGO involved in the rehabilitation and support of women who’ve been trafficked or suffered domestic violence.

Film
Poor execution, but excellent topic and, ultimately, a harrowing film with the lovely Rachel Weisz and Monica Bellucci. That said, I was definitely not a fan of the incredible male prejudice.

Crowd
Interesting people at this event, but predominantly rich middle aged expats. Makes sense considering it took place way out in, what must be, the suburbs.

Overall though, so refreshing to hear about something that benefits real live human beings – as opposed to listening to all the ways my company wants to make more money.

With half of myself feeling too shy to target one specific person (whom I hadn’t met by the end of the night) and the other half of me blatantly not wanting to ruin the night by talking about sales, I made the concise decision not to do the last minute PR I was offhandedly assigned. I stand by that decision.
