Cambodia Investment Review
Rose Entertainment, the full-service event management firm based in Phnom Penh, has hosted its business and corporate luncheon to help Phnom Penh’s ex-pat community better understand local business opportunities.
Keynote speakers at the business luncheon were CIR Media Founder Harrison White and American Hardwood Flooring Founder and CEO Géraldine Adolh and moderated by Secil Rose Dy, Founder of Rose Entertainment.
The panel discussion hosted at Midpoint Restaurant in Phnom Penh centered on the business opportunities for the ex-pats living and working in Cambodia as well as stories from their own entrepreneurial ventures.
Many opportunities for skilled ex-pats
CIR Media Founder Harrison White reflected on the increasing need for skilled ex-pats in Cambodia as well as the constraints that COVID had previously put out on the opportunities for business delegations to visit.
“Since the easing of entry requirements and the lifting of quarantine restrictions, Cambodia has witnessed an uptick in the number of visiting business delegations visiting the Kingdom both regionally and internationally,” Harrison said.
“The international business community is finally beginning to get past the persistently negative and sometimes distorted or biased headlines about Cambodia, to take a serious and more objective look at one of the fastest growing economies in the world,” he added.

Géraldine Adolh is Founder and CEO of American Hardwood Flooring and is involved in the local business community through EuroCham and currently running for a board position and AmCham as the Vice-President of the Women’s Committee,
“Going to events like today helps getting to know people and increase your business visibility. Social media resources are also beneficial for startups and don’t forget to use LinkedIn to reach a more professional community,” Géraldine said
When asked about challenges of doing business in the Kingdom, she reflected on the few skilled workers available.
“Training opportunities are available in Phnom Penh, and workers would greatly benefit from attending training to grow and share their knowledge. This is the best way to improve the quality of goods and services sold in Cambodia,” she said.
Corporate events in Phnom Penh
Rose Entertainment was created by pairing together passion for business and events to bring a fresh, unique approach to the event management industry.
The team has over 12 years of experience in event management and understands that a properly executed event can be leveraged to support an organization’s strategic vision, incorporated into a company’s marketing plan, or used to build networks and client loyalty.
Secil Rose Dy told Cambodia Investment Review that hosting major corporate and private events has become the subject of intense competition among nations after the lockdown was lifted.
“Most of the International and local companies have financial commitments in order to balance work-life concept views the success of a company largely in the happiness and productivity of its employees,” Rose said.
She also admitted the importance of building connections all over the world would help to improve people’s personalities, and communication skills as well as expand their business.
