The first Danish -Thai Alumni Networking at the Royal Danish Embassy in two years took place in the evening of Tuesday 14 May 2013 with so many Danes participating that they almost drowned out the Thai participants.
For the Thai participants, especially for the newly returned exchange students, the main attraction was to meet Ambassador Mikal H. Winther and his wife Ratanawadee in their private residence, which they had opened for the event. For the Danish participants, the evening posed a chance to connect to these newly returned students to canvas for potential new employees – plus catch up with old friends and acquaintances.
An added bonus was the popular Danish hotdog and other nice Danish specialties that were served in the dining room.
Several speakers addressed the guests during the evening, starting with welcome speeches by Dancham President Peter Romhild, Ambassador Mikael Hemniti Winther and Thai-Danish Club President Eid Alexandersen.
The main speaker of the evening was Dr Pensak Chagsuchinda Howitz who talked about the historical background of the Alumni and the importance of the cooperation between the Alumni, the Chamber and the Embassy.
Finally, Carsten Andersen of Kvik kitchen presented the rise of the company in Denmark and its current expansive position in Thailand.[wzslider autoplay=”true” interval=”1300″]
