As England gears up to host the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the Kiwi Chamber, British Chamber of Commerce in Korea, AustCham, South African Chamber of Commerce in Korea and Korea Rugby Union will be hosting a 2015 Rugby World Cup Charity Dinner on Tuesday May 19th with the support of DHL, Land Rover, and SOCIETE GENERALE.
This year, there will be two guest speakers: Graham Henry, the former coach of the world champion All Blacks from New Zealand, and Olympic gold medalist Chang Mi Ran.
Graham Henry is, of course, most well known for coaching the New Zealand All Blacks to the Rugby World Cup finals in 2011. The All Blacks went on to win against France with a score of 8-7. When he finally retired later that year, he had led the All Blacks to victories in five Tri Nations, three Grand Slams, and one Rugby World Cup.
The second speaker, Chang Mi-ran, is a world record holding Olympic weight lifter. She won the silver medal in the 2004 Summer Olympics by lifting over 600 lbs in competition. She went on to win the gold in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and break world records by lifting a combined weight of 326 kgs. She went on to win the gold at the 2010 Asian Games before retiring in 2013 to continue her education.
The reception will begin at 6:30 pm at the Grand Ballroom on the 5th floor of the JW Marriott Gangnam. Dinner will be a menu of inspired Australian cuisine complemented by wine from New Zealand.
