Indeed an excellent training

"It was indeed an excellent training. My expectations were exceeded. This was because of the very concrete content and frameworks that were showed and demonstrated skillfully. In addition, there was much extra content and great, deep discussion through which it was easy to gain simple individual learning points."

Christopher Holdgaard Bukh, Associate HR specialist, Organisational Development – Global mindset training for Grundfos

The training was excellent. Eye opener.

"The training has broadened my sense of understanding of how to deal with the uniqueness of the individual cultures we bring with us onboard and it has helped me know in depth my own culture too. The training was excellent. Eye opener."

Melgrace Lagumbay, Third Officer – Global mindset training for NORDEN, focusing on Danish, Indian, and Philippine culture

One of the best trainings I have attended

"I liked the way Annette was including us in the training, always being very participating and active. One of the best trainings I have attended."

Lone Lynge Svendsen, Team Assistant – Global mindset training for SGRE

Great discussion about Risk and meetings

"Great discussion about Risk and meetings. It really got me thinking about how I manage meetings with my team, even though they are all US citizens. I also really liked the discussion around brain chemistry and the fight/flight reaction."

Charles Harris, CSU Manager – Global mindset workshop for Grundfos

I liked the professional level of the workshop

"I liked the professional level of the workshop, the mindset and perspective of looking at cultural differences, and the concrete tools and practical / pragmatic approach."

Michala Prip, SAP Security Controller, Master data & authorizations – Global mindset training for ECCO

Good concrete tips and tricks that I can easily use

"I found that there was a good balance between theory and exercises. The content and models used was not only focused on differences between two specific countries, but a general introduction to the subject. Good concrete tips and tricks that I can easily use every day."

Daniel Sandgaard, Department Manager Service & Support – Global mindset training for DEIF

I liked that we laughed a lot

"I liked the energy, the knowledge and the way Annette communicated the message. It was done in a way so no one felt stepped on and when it was a "serious" message then it was done with humor. I liked that we laughed a lot, that brought us closer with our colleagues."

Birgitte Christiansen – Global mindset training for SGRE

An eye-opener for me

"I liked the group work where we had to classify our own culture and learn about the cultures that the other team members came from. That was an eye-opener for me. I learned something new about the Mexican culture, but it also made me reflect on how my own actions can be related to my culture."

Pia Helene Jensen, Senior Master Planner – Global mindset workshop for Grundfos

Vivid, engaging, and involving

"Thank you so much for once again giving an excellent speech. Not only is the topic very interesting, but you're also doing a really great job! Vivid, engaging, and involving. It's simply a pleasure."

Jan Lindegaard, Network Director, Executives’ Global Network – Global mindset speech

I liked the 4R model

"I liked the 4R model – it is a very structured tool to describe "gaps" between the Danish and French culture. The instructor's personal knowledge of and ties to the French culture made her very credible to listen to."

Søren Bloch, Senior Supply Chain Planner, Supply Planning DK – Global mindset training for Lundbeck, focusing on French culture

Everything was simply perfect

Managed to move our understanding of culture to a higher level

"Annette Dahl gave an amazing talk on cultural awareness training at our rotary meeting. With charm and elegance she managed to move our understanding of culture to a higher level.

Annette showed us how an open mind to cultural differences leads to new ways of understanding the good intentions of other people and turn the soul of Rotary into a tangible tool."

Anton Storgaard, President Brædstrup Rotary Klub 2018/2019 – Global mindset speech

I've only got positive feedback from our people

"Thank you so much for a really exciting training last week! I think it went really well and I've only got positive feedback from our people. Many have said that it's actually really good to discuss cultural differences and similarities and to become aware of these things.

Not everyone has thought about these things and about how differences can affect the collaboration with subsidiaries, so the day has probably raised many thoughts on how to enhance the collaboration."

Henna Helena Mikkola, Management Coordinator, Land Power – Global mindset training for DEIF

An excellent workshop

"This was an excellent workshop I have taken in my 20 years of global career, which takes one into the Danish way of working, in a step wise manner.

The course highlighted the cultural and behavioural aspects of Danish society and work culture, and how to navigate across these cultural boundaries to be successful working for a Danish company. The presentation material and flip chart discussions and activities were very useful."

Ashish Paradkar, Consultant – Global mindset training for Novozymes, focusing on Danish work culture

I really enjoyed the good energy

René Poulsen, Product Manager, Land Power  – Global mindset training for DEIF

Very action oriented

"Very action oriented, very well founded in our reality (Grundfos / IS)."

It put things in perspective

Everything on the training was exciting!

"Everything on the training was exciting! After the training, I found a way to communicate or collaborate with other nationalities by knowing first their culture and other relevant factors to achieve good results and promote a harmonic working environment. I will continue to explore more factors to help improve my ways."

3rd Officer Marvin A. Ordaneza – Global mindset training for NORDEN, focusing on Danish, Indian, and Philippine culture

A lot of great information

Winnie Kudahl Høstgaard, Project Coordinator – Global mindset workshop for DEIF

Highly competent within a difficult and complicated field

"Annette, you're highly competent within a difficult and complicated field, so your knowledge is really needed in many, many Danish businesses. That you have such a positive charisma as you do is just an extra plus!"

Jørn Henriksen, Network Director / Meeting Facilitator, Executives’ Global Network – Global mindset speech

Also moved the whole group closer to each other

Techniques on how to improve collaboration and harmony

"The topic that I liked the most was the emphasizing of the importance of 'tell and ask'; the cultural iceberg; and the sharing of cultural differences between Filipinos, Indians, and Danes in order to seek for techniques on how to improve collaboration and harmony despite the barriers due to differences in culture."

Participant at Global mindset training for NORDEN, focusing on Danish, Indian, and Philippine culture

The practical examples were great
