Achievements in Hanoi

160 alumni, staff and friends in Hanoi, enjoyed a lively evening celebrating La Trobe University alumni achievement in Vietnam, gathering for a special reception event held at the Sofitel Metropole Hanoi on 14 March, 2011.

We were pleased to see so many of our recent graduates attending the event, who only the day before had their degrees conferred by our Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Johnson and Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (International and Development), John Rosenberg.

Special guests and speakers included the Australian Ambassador to Vietnam HE Mr Allastar Cox and the Ms Thu Pham, a high-profile Vietnamese entrepreneur and a La Trobe University Young Achiever Award winner.  Other alumni speakers included Mr Pham Vu Hai and Mr Pham Tuan Anh, managing editor of the popular DanTri International. After the event proceedings, graduates mingled with La Trobe senior staff and friends in the relaxed and historic setting of the Metropole Hotel, which capped off and very noisy, positive and enjoyable evening.
