Welcome to Denmark! When you’ve just arrived in Denmark, there are a lot of things to think about. How do you find a place to live, or food that’s appropriate to a newcomer’s budget? How do you make friends or, if you’re single, look for a romantic partner? And what are the basic rules for succeeding in school or in a professional environment? (Tip: The Danes are happy to help you if you need it, but you have to speak up and ask.)
Kay Xander Mellish has based this fun but very useful presentation on her own first days in Denmark, when she received an “executive move” from a company that quickly went out of business, leaving her to fend for herself.
A trained journalist and a former member of the communications staff at Danske Bank, Carlsberg Breweries and Saxo Bank, Kay runs her own communications consulting business in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is behind the podcast series ‘How to Live in Denmark’ and is the author of the book How to Live in Denmark, available in English, Chinese, and Arabic.
