DKUK Newsletter november 2018

 

Dear Members and Friends,

As we approach the end of 2018, and with only two months left we still have three of this year's biggest events coming up!

On the 8th November, "UK Energy Opportunities II - a new paradigm on the horizon" which includes some very interesting names and companies.

We have the Grand Gala & Dinner & Ball taking place on the 6th December at the Dorchester Hotel where her Majesty Queen Margrethe II will be the Guest of Honour and last but not least we have our Annual Christmas Lunch, takes place on the 14th December which will be full of fun and festivities.

This month's editorial is written by our Chairman, Niels Ladefoged. Much of what we have tried to create with our new organisation is a 'Forening' meaning we are not just a service provider, which organises premises, events, services etc., but rather a community we all feel we belong to.

 

Kind regards,

DKUK team (Emma, Deanne, Mads & Gunnar)

 

 
 
 
Editorial
 

Editorial by Niels Ladefoged, Chairman of the Board

It is a real privilege to be able to share with you my thoughts and feelings as we approach the first anniversary of our Association. Much has been achieved, and all of the practical details in connection with the merger now lie behind us. Gunnar and the office team, helped by volunteers have done all this whilst delivering an impressive list of events ranging from dinners, business working groups and monthly drinks to the wonderful summer reception at the House of Lords.
