Presentation:  The Magic of Peninsula Valdés

Time:  Saturday, March 27, 5 pm BA time

Zoom:  email tonilin@aol.com for Zoom meeting info, or join the BAIN DT Zoom room as you have in the past

Join us for an engaging discussion about the magic of Peninsula Valdés, and the excitement and challenges of developing projects in countries like Argentina. Sharilyn Amy (bio below) will share what inspires her to invest and the floor will be open to any and all questions about the region or the projects underway!

Sharilyn will share drone footage of the orcas in their element.  She will give us an insider’s view of this unique wildlife reserve in Patagonia, Argentina.  Your best opportunity to ask questions before you travel to this amazing province.

Sharilyn Amy, MBA

Sharilyn is the developer, co-owner and operator of an award-wining eco-hotel in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage site and wildlife reserve in Patagonia, Argentina, Océano Patagonia: Wild Coast Residence. www.oceanopatagonia.com. She spent the first years of her career working in communications for the oil and gas sector before transitioning to the Red Cross, where she managed disaster response communications, publicity and government relations strategies around the globe. She then founded Go-To Group, a strategic planning, research and facilitation consultancy. Among other leading-and-learning-edge strategic leadership offers, her team specialized in community economic development (CED), social enterprise, and M&A in the social services, charity, education and NGO sectors. In 2012, Sharilyn took a leave of absence from her work to spend some time in Argentina, where she quickly fell in love with the culture and the challenges of doing business and making a difference within this complex society. After supporting the development of a CED tourism project in the mountains of Patagonia, she joined her Argentine business partner to develop socially and environmentally responsible luxury accommodation in Peninsula Valdés, Chubut, Argentina. Most recently, Sharilyn and another Argentine business associate have created ElementPatagonia, an initiative to help Argentine artisans reach broader markets. She has been awarded the Women of Inspiration – Humanitarian award in Canada and recognized with an Alumni Achievement award from Mount Royal University. Sharilyn often speaks to groups interested in development and social enterprise. She also enjoys coaching young entrepreneurs.

Zoom Monthly Social — February 27 — Saturday at 5 pm Buenos Aires Time

 

Join BAIN Downtown for our unique time and day of the month end social. This month only, we are changing the time and day, in hopes that as many members as possible can participate in the discussion.

The program is also a first.  Below is a link to an old (35 years old) movie that many many Argentines consider a classic.  You will find it a bit dated but very Argentine.  It has English subtitles.  Since many of you are studying Spanish, it may serve many purposes.

Watch as little or as much as you want.  Come with thoughts to share.  Info to join the Zoom talk is the same as always.  I’ll send it to you if you email me a request, tonilin@aol.com

Time: 12:30 pm
Place: EL BURLADERO J. E. Uriburu 1488 – esq Pena
Cost: 285 pesos (includes wine and tip) as usual correct change will be appreciated

We are going back to El Burladero next Wednesday for the simple reason that in Michael’s opinion this restaurant offers the best lunch value in the entire city – plus they have a new menu!  The brothers that run El Burladero, Fervor, Sexto and Sotte Voce know how to deliver excellence. As expected we will be served a glass of cider or beer to go with the bread and entrada, and a glass of wine with the meal.

As of this November Tripadvisor now rates this venue as the 58th best restaurant in the city out of 4,253. Please note that the menu does not include water or coffee. If you order either it will be an additional 40 pesos per. Tap water will be available on the table.

Our price will be 285 pesos which includes tip and is about 16% more than our cost in March!
Please RSVP to Michael to secure a place.
