Introduce your new students or employees to the unwritten rules of Danish culture


The "Welcome to Denmark"  event is hosted by Kay Xander Mellish, host of the long-running "How to Live in Denmark" podcast. It will present your students or new employees with the basics of everyday life in Denmark - everything from the importance of being on time to the meaning of Jantelov to the best way to make Danish friends.

Kay Xander Mellish, an American who has lived in Denmark for more than a decade, is the author of two books on life as a foreigner in Denmark: How to Live in Denmark (2014 and 2017) and How to Work in Denmark (2018). 

The "Welcome to Denmark" event is an entertaining, informative presentation your audience of newcomers will enjoy. 



"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
