Introduce your new students or new employees to Danish culture

WHAT PREVIOUS CLIENTS SAY

"It was a pleasure to have you around at the introduction day. Your speech was spot on in regards to Danes and Danish values and it was lot of fun for us. One of the older international students came to me and said. “I wish I had heard this speech when I first came to Denmark - gosh how many mistakes I could have prevented then."

- METTE ØSTERGAARD SAMUELSEN, INTERNATIONAL UDVIKLINGSLEDER, UCN AALBORG

About the Welcome to Denmark drawing

AN UPDATED VERSION OF CLAUS DELEURAN's CLASSIC 1992 POSTER

Noted Danish cartoonist Claus Deleuran did his version of "The Danes" for an exhibit at Nikolaj Bygning in Copenhagen in 1992. Twenty-six years later, Kay Xander Mellish and Polish artist Karolina Kara re-imagined and updated the poster to reflect Denmark as it is today. (You can see Kay reading reading the original version of her book How to Live in Denmark in the drawing.)
