|Greetings from the Chairman|
And just like that, it's December!
With that, also the last newsletter of the year - and there are so many things that we would like to say to our DCC community = YOU, the recipients of this newsletter.
But most importantly - a big thank you! We really feel that we have come together as a community in the past year. From a DCC perspective, this is exactly what this platform is for and it has been great to see the forging of new professional connections and friendships. A network that helps each other when the going gets tough, shoulders to lean on, encouragement and help when things does not work out the way we plan.
Commemorating on the year that has gone - then it was amazing that we could send a small regatta of 4 junks to sea for our annual Mid-Summer junk. It felt very special and it made waves in the business chamber community that the Danish Chamber was able to gather that many people. And as if that was not enough, then the community also had no issues waking up in the middle of the night to watch the Danish National Football team in the EURO 2020. Fantastic memories made and this just goes to show, that our community is full of amazing people.
We greatly appreciate the support and engagement and are looking forward to see you on Saturday for our annual Christmas dinner where we will also celebrate our 25th. anniversary.
None of the above would have been possible without sponsors. A special thanks to: Modern Terminals, DSV, Maersk Brokers, Jebsen and Carlsberg.
If you cannot make it to the Christmas Party, then let's meet for a cocktail or two at Normann CPH (13. Dec) or at the Nordic Winter Market (21. Dec) and wish each other a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. See below events and register if you can make it.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas.
We hope everyone will make the best of it, maneuvering the current pandemic challenges.
