  • Mark O'Reilly Team Humber Marine Alliance

    A very enjoyable event amongst key UK and Danish representatives across the whole energy spectrum. It was good to be able to participate in small discussion topics as well as listen to informed speakers about the latest thinking in the energy industry especially my area of interest Offshore Wind. In addition the lunch was very nice and the networking opportunities invaluable.  

  • Jens Anders Palmqvist

    The DUCC provides its members with a platform from which they can communicate and meet with customers and competitors alike. Its networking events are an effective professional relationship tool, attracting like-minded individuals to share and debate strategies, policy and ambitions. It exists uniquely to assist and nurture Danes both here and at home.

  • Isaac Sheps

    What really matters is what you learn after you know everything.” (John Wood)The networking opportunity provided by DUCC is fulfilling this need of continuous learning and gathering of information.Sometimes it may be just small talk but by meeting colleagues from other businesses and understanding their business valuable openings can occur."

  • Ken Fiddes

    At Vestas, we believe networking is a critical factor in fostering and building strong relationships with customers, partners, suppliers and the general business community. Vestas is a truly global organisation but we are proud of our Danish roots. We relish the opportunity to meet similar minded individuals and organisations from both the UK and Denmark, where we can share ideas and best practices within a relatively relaxed forum environment. The DUCC allows us excellent scope for communication with other members at informal events, organised meetings and online, helping us to strengthen our network and to make a positive contribution wherever possible.

  • Annette Niebuhr

    Networking is an essential and valuable part of our lives. It is the basis for our continuous personal development and the key to establish, maintain, and leverage our professional relations.The DUCC provides an excellent forum for its members to develop relationships of reciprocal value.

  • Rasmus Ankersen

    Business is all about connections and relationships, and through DUCC I've got introductions and contacts to people I wouldn't have been able to create myself. DUCC has made an effort to understand my needs and therefore been able to connect me with the right people.

  • Peter Alstrup

    The Chamber has enabled me to not only strengthen my network, but also has helped to expand my market intelligence

  • Kyrre Haugen

    The way DUCC organise the different events is really good and gives excellent value for money and more importantly a good return on investment I would highly recommend all businesses dealing with Denmark and Scandinavia to become a member of DUCC and to utilise the network and business opportunities they offer

  • Magnus Skaarup

    I am a member of The Danish-UK Chamber of Commerce because of its formal and informal networking opportunities. The contacts I have made and the relationships I have built have been invaluable to me both professionally and personally. I hope to continue being a member of the Chamber and to develop the full potential of my business

  • Ulrik J Walther

    Not only does the Danish UK Chamber provide me with opportunities to strengthen my network within Denmark, but it also gives me access to the much wider Nordic markets with 25 million consumers, a diverse range of export driven businesses, many of which are global leaders within their field and with a total stock market value in excess of $1.3 trillion. This makes the DUCC truly unique.

  • Jeff Rebello

    SAS sees that being an Advisory Board member of the DUCC is of great value in many ways, but most importantly, it gives us the opportunity to meet up with other members at DUCC events who are, in most cases, our most valued customers. What better way to engage with our customers first hand and find out how their experience with SAS has been.

  • Claus Hyldager

    Membership of the DUCC has given us the opportunity of getting to know a broad spectrum of Danish and other Nordic colleagues from a very diverse range of businesses here in the UK.Exchanging ideas and news with people from different sectors is both valuable and stimulating. Business is all about those you meet and work with, whatever their backgrounds, and we find the DUCC a very refreshing forum for such encounters.

  • David Thompson

    Gunnar and the team at the Danish-UK Chamber have provided us with invaluable business contacts through a diversity of events and networking opportunities and have always been on hand to encourage commercial interaction between members. They are a pleasure to work with and I highly value their efforts.

  • Peter Willems

    It was both educational and enjoyable to participate in DUCC's dinner with Merryck & Co. The event provided a valuable insight into a fascinating business and its unique proposition. Furthermore, the arrangement was well thought through and smoothly executed. Well done!

  • David Franks

    David Franks about the Annual Dinner 2012 - "A truly memorable evening. Fine wines, fine food, a stunning venue, and very fine company. A perfect evening for all.

    DUCC is a great partner for networking in an international business community. We have come across good opportunities through the one-to-one introductions, the regular events that they organise and their targeted approach to mixing established relationships with new.

  • Alessandro Lobbi

    Nordic Business Forum 2013 has been a great experience. It was the first DUCC event I attended. The choice of the location was amazing and the speakers very interesting. I would definitely join more of your events because I found it a high standard professional networking.

  • Christine Vu

    I enjoyed the seminar Business Coaching for managers(ed:SME-Club Business Coaching 09.07.2013), it gave ideas and inspiration of what opportunities are there to push forward your company. It was good with the elements of change management. Many thanks to the Pelham Hotel, it made the seminar even better with stunning surroundings.

  • Tamar Meshoulam

    Fantastic and well organised conference (ed: The Customer Experience & Loyalty Conference). Good mixer of speakers and a high quality of presentations.

  • Annemette Kjær-Nielsen

    Tak for en spændende konference i fredags (red: Customer Experience & Loyalty Konferencen). Der var mange interessante input og jeg vil bestemt dele mange af dem internt på Kunde & Co.Det var også spændende at høre Anne Sofie fortælle om jeres arbejde i The Danish-UK Chamber of Commerce.

  • Jette Heldgaard

    Tak for en dejlig eftermiddag. Det var en meget fin planlagt julefrokost og jeg nød maden og det gode selskab.

  • Jette Heldgaard

    DUCC and its members represent at fantastic network. People are eager to network and help each other, which creates a lot of opportunity. To me DUCC has been an amazing partner in 2013 and in the future I will try to contribute as much to the network as I have received of help, inspiration and contacts. I strongly recommend joining DUCC.

  • Chris Malyon

    A very good day as always (red: "The Christmas Lunch"), please reserve us a table for next year!

  • Jørgen Erik Andersen

    I did today participate in the “A practical introduction on how to increase export sales to the UK” hosted by Delacour, Aarhus.Must say it was very informative, and I did benefit participating in the session today. After the session I had meetings with EBS, and this gave a good introduction how to “start up” in the UK marked.

  • Mario Amato

    My wholehearted congratulations for a wonderfully enjoyable event yesterday evening at the Embassy.

  • Jesper Krogh Schlosser

    The Nordic Drinks Night at SKANDIUM was an amazing opportunity to network and meet so many different people representing a wide range of organisations... Thank you for a relevant, professional and fun event!

  • Ida

    Invited as a guest by one of your members I attended my first monthly Nordic Drinks event by DUCC last night. Surrounded by fantastic Scandinavian design in Skandium I had a truly enjoyable time. From a warm welcome at the door to meeting exciting and new contacts in a relaxed and informal setting. I've already signed up for the next one.

  • Valentina Kristensen

    A really great evening meeting a diverse and interesting mix of professionals whilst enjoying delicious Danish food!

  • Dennis Englund

    Thanks to Gunnar and his team for pulling the full strength of the DUCC Network and enable a great cooperation between Bang&Olufsen and VisitDenmark.

  • Steen Olsen

    Having hosted the launch of "The Networking Book" by Simone Andersen and LID Publishing last night, I would like to thank Gunnar, Jan and the DUCC team for the introduction and help in making this event happen. It was great to have more than 80 people together from different walks of life participating in, and sharing something we spent a lot of time doing - networking.

  • Amrita Brard

    The DUCC events are always exceptional with many networking opportunities. We have benefited greatly from our membership at the DUCC and have developed many lasting business relationships. The recent event we co-hosted with them at Fritz Hansen was a tremendouns success!

  • Jes Lauritzen

    Many thanks for organising an entertaining network evening with Simone Andersen. It was very interesting and useful.

  • Martin Liu

    Gunnar and his colleagues have always been great friends of LID Publishing. Together, we have managed to create some very interesting book projects in English by Danish authors. We really appreciate this unique relationship.

  • Kieron Moore

    Gunnar & Team, A huge thank you for organizing a truly memorable evening at Birmingham Symphony Hall. The DUCC Reception provided a great opportunity to meet likeminded Nordic-ists and the 2-4-1 ticket offer for us to experience the Royal Danish Orchestra!

  • Simone Lemming Andersen

    I am very grateful and cannot thank DUCC - and especially Gunnar Larsen - enough for the help and responsiveness I have received. Without that part of my network, The Networking Book would never have been taken on by LID Publishing, would never have made it to the top of the British bestseller list and would never have been published worldwide. And without DUCC - LID Publishing and I would never have had a fantastic book launch at Fritz Hansen’s show room on 15 September. DUCC is the epitome of successful networking and belongs to the absolute elite of Britain because their network includes strong brands with active members who go for growth and want to help each other. But a network does not work automatically. It takes very strong facilitators and passionate characters to make a success - and that is where Gunnar, Jan and Maike are in a league of their own

  • Paula Bateman

    DUCC organised a work session on Corporate Storytelling & TV Documentaries. A good selection of participants from across business and a great panel from some of the UK's leading TV production companies. So glad I went along, I learnt a lot and made some great connections. Thanks you DUCC team, excellent event, look forward to the next one

  • Craig Hartwell

    The DUCC Nordic Drinks evenings always bring together an eclectic mix of people, and it seems that inevitably business is done and friends are made. Gunnar, Jan, Louis and the team help with introductions and ideas, and most importantly, it is fun!

  • Frederick Bjoern

    Thank you for another excellent DUCC Christmas Lunch. It was very well organised and the return to the unusual venue made it a most enjoyable occasion. It was also an ideal networking opportunity with diverse table plans to ensure varying topics of discussion during the meal, plenty of schnapps! and a good bar afterwards to circulate.

  • Nils Elmark

    Thank you for a wonderful gettogether at Bodo Schloss in the Austrian Alps. As always with the Nordic Drinks: A freindly crowd where you make new interesting connections with some outstanding people!

  • Karen Marie Sandgren

    Thanks to DUCC for yet another memorable Annual Dinner. A classy event in top notch company. Looking forward to the Summer drinks!

  • Jette Heldgaard

    I attended the launch of the Human Capital and Organisational Development network (HCOD). An excellent network to present and discuss various themes and trends within HR.

  • Georg Toufar

    Thanks so much for a great evening last night (Ed.

Thank you to all the sponsors and participants to have contributed to a really high profile and interesting event.

  • Ólöf Jonsdottir

    Thanks for an excellent event last night too (Ed: “Britain out of EU” 25 Oct 2016) – it was particularly helpful for me to get the legal view and interesting to hear the perspective of the civil service as well. Plenty of food for thought!
