Water sommeliers

Water sommeliers

Wetskills-South Korea 2018 – It is the third day in Korea and our second field trip. This was a perfect opportunity to continue our team-building and know each other better before the actual work starts. “K-water” – one of the Wetskills partners and case owner organized a visit to the headquarter, which is located in Daejen. From Seoul, it took more than 2 hours to get there. Because of traffic, we arrived later than it was planned and went directly to a small and cozy traditional restaurant. The lunch was impressive. There were “pancakes” from vegetables, smoked duck and an absolute favorite dish of the day – Maesaengi soup.

 

 

After lunch, we got a very warm welcome from the “K-water” employees.  Above all, the “K-water” director came to meet our delegation to shake hands. Further as a part of our excursion, we visited a start-up hub, where people can work on their innovative water-related projects. There we learned how the “K-water” operates a water network in Korea and saw a control room, where all data are collected and analyzed. We also visited research facilities and had a chance to try 4 different water and choose a best tasted one as water sommeliers. Further, we went to the lab and saw how water quality is controlled.

 

 

After a long day full of useful information, dinner and  Korean karaoke were waiting for us. Singing “Gangnam style” all together was the perfect ending of the second teambuilding day.
