DKUK Newsletter September 2019

backgroundbridge
 

Dear Members and Friends,

We hope you have all had a great summer!

We also hope batteries have been re-charged, as we are more than ready for a new season of exciting DKUK events. Amongst the most notable are the International Wine, Spirits and Beer Tasting at Chelsea FC on 03 October, the Nordic Business Chamber Forum 2019 on 28 October and last but not least, the Annual Christmas Lunch on 13 December.

We are very pleased to have Jens Lundsgaard, EBRD, writing this month's editorial. Very exciting reading, and topics that we will also touch upon at the Nordic Chambers Business Forum in October - an event at which Jens Lundsgaard will moderate an interesting panel debate on the topic "Investing in Sustainability".

Furthermore, we would like to use this space to announce the welcoming of new interns Kristine and Henrik, who will be with the association for the next year. They will be joining the DKUK YP Council along with Sabrina Johnson and Mira Blomqvist, who are also joining as new YP Council members. They have exciting YP events in the making, so be sure to keep updated on the web and social media.

Kind regards,

DKUK team (Deanne, Kristine, Gunnar & Henrik)

What am I talking about? The UN Sustainable Development Goals, of course!
