Kay Xander Mellish, an American keynote speaker in Denmark, can be booked for a variety of events, including “Welcome to Denmark” presentations, events about Danish culture and Danish working culture, and tips for Danes working with internationals, in particular Americans.
Kay is the author of five books about Denmark: How to Live in Denmark (2014 and 2017), Top 35 Mistakes Danes Make in English (2016), How to Work in Denmark (2018), Working with Americans: Tips for Danes (2019) and Working with Danes: Tips for Americans (2020.)
Standard and tailored presentations
Kay’s How To Live in Denmark events are designed to make international employees feel more comfortable in Denmark, help them understand the Danish mindset, and give them something to chat about with their Danish colleagues besides just ‘shop talk.’
She also offers events that help Danish team members understand their own cultural presets and think about what they may be expecting from their international colleagues without even really knowing it.
A former staff member at Danske Bank, Carlsberg Breweries and Saxo Bank, Kay has worked for Fortune 500 companies on both sides of the Atlantic.
She currently runs a small communications consulting business in Copenhagen, Denmark and speaks to several dozen audiences every year, including corporate groups, university classes, and government departments.
Kay is the voice behind the long-running podcast series ‘How to Live in Denmark’.
