Chairman’s Corner – Poul G. Kristensen 

Dear Members and Friends of DCCC,

After a long summer break, we are back strong with so much events and historical good news for the months of August & September.

Our first event after the summer holiday was on the 18th  of August which was the Danish Friday at Maya. On the 1st of September , we had 1 of the 3 biggest events of DCCC every year which was the Welcome Back BBQ at Lil Laundry. We had a breaking record of attendance this year and we hope to continue this great turn out.

We had a mix crowd of old & new DCCC members and their friends plus newly arrived Danes starting their lives in Shanghai. We enjoyed a night of a delicious buffet of  BBQ meats and sides, overflowing supply of drinks, both alcholic & non-alcoholic, exciting lucky draw prizes and most importantly great company!

In September we had the following events: “Getting things done – The art of stress-free productivity”, September Danish Friday, “My 5 biggest mistakes and what I wish I knew then” with Steen Teisen & Allan Sand, “Impress with Chinese table manners” and lastly “Environmental Protection: How companies stay ahead of regulatory and Policy trends”.

And now for the historical news I mentioned earlier. I can proudly tell you all that starting September, all 3 chapters: Beijing, Shanghai and South China will be working as one  DCCC. This means that all will be acting together in connection with Danish/Chinese institutions, government and associations but will continue to operate independently and will abide by their own bylaws. The Chairmen of the 3 chapters will be electing one of them to be the Pan China Chairman for DCCC and represent us all. The 3 chairmen and each of their administration teams will have regular communication to coordinate the activities of DCCC. I would like  to thank the Board members of the 3 chapters and in particular the 2 other Chairmen: Jan Laegaard Broni and Jens Eskelund for their trust and support! I will do my best to enhance this opportunity together with all the board committees and members.

Looking forward to see you at our next events and wishing you all a great October holiday!
Sincerely Yours,

Poul G. Kristensen
