Sweden Day 5

28 April 2016

Today the students had to come up with questions they would like to ask entrepreneurs in the city of Mjölby, mainly about their way to success. Then they were sent to shops in the shopping centre to interview the shop owners or managers. Ritchard Dabaghi, the owner of an exclusive chocolate and candy store, told the students about the ingredients of being successful in business: you have to love what you do, believe in yourself and have a good plan.

After lunch we visited Ödeshög Mekaniska, a factory specialising in lasercutting and gascutting and one of the main suppliers of Toyota forklift truck. Karin Claesson talked about the history of the factory and its secret of success, i.e. constantly focusing on improvement.

In the evening we had a delicious farewell dinner at the school, a typical smöregasbord.
