Why are the Danes so Weird?

​IDA, the Danish Society of Engineers, and Expat in Denmark would like to invite you to a seminar on Danish culture NB! Sign up here: https://engage.di.dk/cgi-bin/qwebcorporate.cgi?idx=VACME6
Arrangør: IDA København
Medarrangør: IDA København

According to studies around 1/3 of highly skilled people who move to Denmark get negatively surprised by the cultural differences. But it shouldn't be that surprising. In the social sciences it's not a new thing that Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia are significantly culturally different from a lot of other places in the world.
You can't find a country with more general trust, less religiosity, a greater emphasis on equality but also a significant tendency to social reclusiveness and much more.
But why are they so different and how do you crack the code of the Danish society?
Dennis Nørmark will give you insight in the Danish culture and provide you with fun facts and useful advice on how to interact with the weird Danes.

Our speaker for this event Dennis Nørmark is anthropologist and Chief Consultant at Living Institute.
Dennis Nørmark is the driving force behind the development and facilitation of Living Institute's many workshops and courses. Dennis Nørmark has been a lecturer at the Department of Anthropology, Aarhus University, for many years and is author of the books 'Cultural Understanding for Stone Age Brains' and 'the Real Man'. He is known to be a highly skilled and entertaining communicator with great learning value.
The seminar is very entertaining and relevant for both Expats and Danes.
You don't want to miss this!
IDA will be serving æbleskiver (a traditional Danish doughnut served around Christmas) during the break.
Note registration at 5pm!
