Chairman’s Corner – Poul G. Kristensen

Dear Members and Friends of DCCC,

We are on the last quarter of the year and despite this, DCCC has been very busy with many events in October. We have had the 2nd course of the Team Management Training program which was the Effective Communication for Teams & Managers. We also had our informative corporate events like the Cyber Crime in China & Future of VPNs and Convert Social Events to Business Impact. We had 2 joint chamber events which were The 10 Costly Mistakes during Hiring Process and How to do it the Right Way, and Business Insights with Mats Harborn. Last but not the least, we had our usual Danish Friday held at Union Trading.

In the beginning of  November, we had the most awaited and the biggest event of DCCC, the Business Person of the Year 2017 Gala Ball which was held at the Wanda Reign on the Bund on the 4th   of November. It was amazing to see that we did not only have Danish guests but also Canadian, European and other Asians as well. The event was graced with the presence of  Anders Carsten Damsgaard the Ambassador of Denmark to China and Consul General Nicolai Prytz. Danish celebrity Jim Lyngvild was the master of ceremony who did a very good job in giving the limelight to the winners.

The winners this year were:

Business Person of the Year 2017           John Markmann

Entrepreneur of the Year 2017                  Mikkel Hippe Brun

Young Professional of the Year 2017      Kasper Elmholdt Pedersen

I would personally like to thank all our sponsors as without them, this event would have not been possible. I look forward to having them support BPOY 2018 again.

Looking forward to see you all at our annual Danish Christmas Lunch on the 9th of December at Henkes!

Sincerely Yours,

Poul G. Kristensen
