HOW TO WORK IN DENMARK EVENTS
Learn the Unwritten Rules of Working in Denmark
Working in Denmark comes with a lot of benefits, but a lot of unwritten rules too. Why is it so important to take a break from work and eat cake with the rest of your team? Why do Danish bosses introduce themselves by their first name alone and avoid using their job titles? How can you convince an employer or potential employer that you’re skilled enough for the job without breaking Janteloven?
Kay Xander Mellish’s “How to Work in Denmark” presentations are a great way to introduce newly-arrived employees to the Danish workplace, and a great way for non-Danes and Danish employees to understand each other better. Kay can deliver an event tailored to your needs in either English or Danish.
What audiences say about How to Work in Denmark events
“På en humoristisk og meget levende måde fik Kay sat spot på ting vi som danskfødte tager for givet – ting som ikke er så ligetil for vores udenlandske medarbejdere. Foredraget gav stof til eftertanke og vi fik i den grad set os selv udefra.”
