Hygge & Hans Christian Andersen – Family Event

Hygge & Hans Christian Andersen

Welcome Group Consulting are hosting a Family Event on 6th December 2018 – 16:00-18:00

Join Welcome Group Consulting for some Christmas fun. If you have recently arrived in Denmark for work or with your partner, and you want to find out more about what this ‘hygge’ really means, enjoy carols, and taste some traditional Danish treats, then come along on 6th December.

For the Whole Family

This is a family event, children are welcome and while they are making Christmas decorations (supervision has been arranged), take the time to network with other internationals and hear a panel of expats discuss the challenges/ experiences they faced, and what hygge means to them. Karey-Anne, CEO of Welcome Grop Consulting will host the panel and will give you the chance to ask those burning questions about the Danes – like why do they wait for the green at the traffic lights at 03.00 and what do you actually put in an open sandwich! This is a fun event and it also gives you the opportunity to meet others who might be here with their partners and looking to meet like-minded people to experience what Denmark has to offer.


Be a Part of Something Special

Studieskolen and Welcome Group Consulting have partnered to make the transition for internationals arriving in Denmark as smooth and as easy as possible.

* Please reserve a ticket for each person attending (including children). We will try to give age-appropriate gifts, so please email us with the ages of the children attending using the ‘contact the organiser’ link on your reservation confirmation.
