Chairman’s Corner – Poul G. Kristensen

Dear Members and Friends of DCCC,

This month we finished our recognized Emerging Chinese Leaders program that started in January 2017. Through the whole program the participants will develop and train different skills as well do network with pairs from our participant companies.

Once again we accepted participants from members of the Finish & Swedish chambers.

We thank all the participants and their companies for choosing our program and supporting us. Based on the feedback and suggestions, we will definitely run it again next year, so if you have interest or let some of your colleagues participate next time in 2018, don’t hesitate to contact Maria & Laura to reserve a place before they get sold out.

June was also a month with many different offers to our members regarding activities and events, as “Multi Speed Leadership”, where we heard how to lead different kind of employees to reach their full potential; “Every breath you take, every move you make”, about air pollution; “Hard lessons in Legal Protection”, to know more about how to protect your company in China; “The Changing World of work”, touching office environment etc. and finally “Food Safety”, to learn more about what we eat and can get in China.

Because of the coming summer vacation, July will be more quite, anyway you will get more information about it from Maria & Laura.

Looking forward to see you at our next events and wishing you all a great summer!


Sincerely Yours,

Poul G. Kristensen
