DKUK Newsletter January 2019

 

Dear Members and Friends,

The first year of the Danish-UK Association has now come to an end, and we have to say that it has exceeded all of our expectations on so many levels. We have hosted more than 35 events, and there was an incredibly high engagement from our members every time!

We would like to wish you all a Happy 2019: we’re sure that it will be a year full of exciting events and opportunities and hopefully the Association will grow even bigger and more attractive for all our members!

This month’s newsletter includes some exciting news stories, member-to-member offers, pictures from previous events, vacancies and upcoming events, amongst others!

 

Kind regards,

DKUK Team (Emma, Deanne, Mads & Gunnar)
