Thank you to everyone that joined us for an insightful webinar organised by DKUK’s Young Professional members for the enjoyment of us all. Thank you in particular to the speakers Liselotte Lyngsø, Lars-Christian Braks, and Mads Faurholt for some great insight. Unfortunatley Brian Mikkelsen had to send his apologies with short notice, however, we thank him for offering to come back another good time.

This event was hosted in collaboration with the Norwegian-British Chamber of Commerce, the Finnish-British Chamber of Commerce, the British Chamber of Commerce in Denmark, DJOF and the Danish-UK Association.

Focusing primarily on Danish and UK corporate relations with learnings from elsewhere, we will explore 4 key topics:

  • How can leaders best navigate during these uncertain times

Join us for this unique online masterclass opportunity if you would like to learn from leading corporate experts how to best navigate these testing times whether you are an (aspiring) entrepreneur, corporate executive or an employee at any level who wishes to learn the tools on how to best support your company in today’s world.
