Presentations in April about working in Denmark

See below my and other presentations in April about working in Denmark which are open to the public. Looking forward to see you.

(Mis) Understanding Danish work culture

In a highly interactive talk, our speaker Dagmar Fink de-mistifies  the unwritten rules of the Danish work culture. Dagmar will share real-live examples, suggestions and anecdotes and will give practical and detailed information about what works best with Danes and what puts Danes off in a work environment. The seminar is aimed at both non-Danes and Danes.
The Non-Danes participating in the event will get examples for situations where they are looking for work in Denmark as well as for situations where they already have work and they want to further their career. As Dagmar has been hiring and people manager over many years she will point out what counts for a manager, such that you can adapt your approach. You will get practical suggestions on how you can adapt your approach to the work culture in Denmark for various situations like applications / job interviews or your interactions with Danish colleagues. The presentation will enable you to have more impact with what you say, what you do and how you work and therefore be easier “recognized” and valued by Danes for your professional capabilities. This knowledge will increase your chances to find a job which fits to your experiences respectively to further your career in Denmark.
Danes will get examples of how the Danish work culture can be understood in a completely different way than they would imagine. Thus they will be more aware of how to work with non-Danes (in Denmark or abroad) – an important aspect for the growing international business of Danish companies.
