Nikolaj, as Copenhagen’s “Chief Talent Attractor”, what experiences did you bring back home to Denmark, after having been working and living in the Czech Republic and Germany?
Most importantly, an international mindset. In my posting in the Czech Republic, I went on the journey we are sending our international professionals on. An exciting journey but also a challenging one, if you don’t have a network at your destination and cannot find the needed assistance to settle in. That’s why we have a strong focus on assisting international talent when moving to Denmark.
