The Trade Council in China is pleased to invite your company to Danish Company Day 2017. The event will take place on June 23 from 2.00 pm at the United Services Recreation Club in Hong Kong. The Trade Council has hosted a Danish Company Day in Hong Kong for the last three consecutive years, and is pleased to continue this laudable tradition.

The headline of this year’s event is “Understanding Your Danish Colleagues”. The main aims of the event are to provide you and your employees with insights on how to improve cross cultural cooperation within your company as well as to help you to enlarge and bolster your company’s Danish network in Hong Kong.

The Trade Council proudly presents Henrik Larsen as the day’s keynote speaker. Mr. Larsen has more than 15 years’ cultural experience in China. He consults, coaches and trains managements in various topics, integrating cross-cultural knowledge. He is Danish, has lived in China since 1999, has a background in banking, IT and general management, and is a member of the Hong Kong International Coaching Community.

Henrik has tailored a beneficial programme for us, where you will learn about what formed the Danish culture, some cultural theory, and how to cooperate across your cultures. In fact, cultural differences can be your asset, strengthen your organisation, and can add value to your business, as long as you understand each other and deal actively with cross-cultural issues.

By signing up for this event, your company will benefit from the words of an experienced and encouraging speaker, and you will be provided the opportunity to network with other Danish companies in Hong Kong. To round off this educational day, a well-cooked dinner will be served, and there will be time for social networking, exchange of experience and cosy being together.

We look forward to seeing you at the Danish Company Day.

Kind regards,
Anja Villefrance
Consul General, Guangzhou
