Skål International London Dinner & Member Induction Ceremony

Skål International London held a Wine Pairing dinner and Member Induction Ceremony at Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre on March 14, 2023.

Members and guests were treated to a scrumptious farm-to-table dining experience along with a wine pairing courtesy of member & GM Sean Palmer and his talented team at Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre and Pelee Island Winery.

It was an extra special evening as our newest member, Effie Gurman, was officially inducted into Skål International London. As Inn Manger of London’s premier boutique hotel, the Idlewyld Inn and Spa, she has transformed the Inn into a customer first destination location.

For more than 30 years, Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre has been the destination for inspired events. Nestled on 30 acres of sprawling parkland, this historic Georgian manor is the ideal retreat for private and corporate parties. With a rich Southwestern Ontario history and amenities catering to wellness and relaxation, a stay her will foster growth and nature inspiration.
