Based on this experience and on the expertise of key members, the Danish-French Chamber of Commerce offers to companies to organize tailormade trainings on Danish / French work cultures, aiming at bringing participants the basics of the Danish/French work culture and at developing their ability to interact with Danish/French people in professional situations.

Public:  Employees / managers from French group located in Denmark / Danish companies doing business with French people.
