Host: DSV A/S, Hovedgaden 630, 2640 Hedehusene
It was a great afternoon of Inspiration for Success in US!
We were joined by over 100 members and guests at DABF’s 2016 Annual Meeting, followed by an impressive program of inspirational speakers and an elegant dinner hosted by DSV at its beautiful new head office in Hedehusene near Copenhagen.
First we heard an update on the status of DABF’s activities and financials with Chairman Peter Kürstein and DABF Executive Director Einar Dyrhauge.
Then we moved into the Inspiration session, listening to interesting new perspectives from Kristian Jensen, Denmark’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Rufus Gifford, US Ambassador to Denmark.
Last but not least, we heard from DSV Group CEO Jens Bjørn Andersen, who told us with both humor and humility about the company’s journey toward growth through focus on the US market. As you may have seen in the news, DSV has acquired US based UTiWorldwide Inc., a global supply chain services and logistics company with revenue of USD 3.9 billion and 21,000 employees in 58 countries. The combined company forms the world’s strongest transport and logistics networks.
The hour and a half session was expertly moderated by Steffen Gram, Senior International Correspondent for DR Danmarks Radio, with 8 years experience in US.
As always, the event was accompanied by great networking.
You can see more at our video coming soon here, and we’ve summarized some of the key learnings in this post here.
Thanks for joining us! We look forward to creating another inspiring Annual Meeting for you next year!
