Estonishing Evenings to “unlock the code” of the working culture in Estonia

The Estonishing Evenings series returns to Tallinn, discussing how to bridge the Estonian and expat cultural norms in a workplace.

Organised in partnership with Estonian World, the Estonishing Evenings series is an English-speaking evening hosting different speakers expressing their viewpoints and experiences on hot topics and matters concerning both the locals and non-natives living in Estonia. The first, sold-out event, took place in early May and discussed how to settle in a new country.

The second event will focus on working and the work culture in Estonia. Laura Salu, a partner at the relocation company, MoveMyTalent, interacts with hundreds of expats moving to Estonia for work. She will shed some light on the Estonian working life from a local’s perspective – how, why and where we work and what do we expect in return.

Kathleen Naglee, the director and CEO of the International School of Estonia, is an award-winning international teacher and educational leader. Naglee will be talking about how to bridge Estonian and expat cultural norms in the work place.

The visitors are free to express their opinions and to join in on the discussion as well, the organisers said, adding that a surprise guest will also make an appearance.

The event will again take place at the Erinevate Tubade Klubi (the Club of Different Rooms) at the Telliskivi Creative City in Tallinn on 14 June.

The evening will be moderated by Silver Tambur, the Editor-in-Chief of Estonian World.
