IWC Copenhagen Calender
We can order a Self-Tour guide in either Danish and English.
After the tour of the museum we can meet for a light lunch at the museum Café and discuss the exhibition.
There will be an exciting guest speaker, Anne Laxholm, former elite sports dancer, dance instructor, start-up company initiator, and recognised judge on TV2’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ (Vild med Dans) programme.
For those of you who would like to join the IWC Reading group, you will be most welcome to join us.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 8 March 2022.
Please ring for the venue and time.
We will be reading “Oh William!” by Elizabeth Strout. In this Pulitzer Prize, New York Times bestseller novel the author traces the enduring bond between a divorced couple in a poignant novel about love, loss, and the family secrets that can erupt and bewilder us at any point in life.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and welcoming anyone new, who loves reading and talking about what they’ve enjoyed.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, this tour has been cancelled. We hope to run it at a later time.
This splendid castle is over 400 years old, built by King Christian IV, situated in the King’s Garden (Kongens Have) in the heart of Copenhagen. It houses Royal art treasures and the Crown Jewels and Royal Regalia.
Our guide, Peter Kristiansen, was the Superintendent of Rosenborg Castle and lived in the castle for many years. He has a wealth of knowledge of the history, the art exhibits and the Royal Family.
After the guided tour, we can meet at a local café for a lunch.
The speaker at the luncheon is Tanya Ellis.
Tania is a Danish-British prize-winning author, speaker and business innovator, specialising in social business trends and strategies.
Her internationally acclaimed book ‘The New Pioneers’ was listed on Cambridge’s Top 40 Sustainability Books in 2010, and has cemented her status as a global trend-spotter and thought-leader. Tania is the founder & CEO of The Social Business Company.
Tania will speak about why and how sustainability and responsibility is moving gradually into the heart of business. She will be sharing insights into the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, along with some of the current sustainability trends and best business practices of how many companies are using their business as a force for good.
Particularly interesting for the IWC and its goals, Tania will also share examples of how companies are working with strategic philanthropy and skilled volunteering as a part of their responsibility and sustainability efforts.
As one of Scandinavia’s leading social business experts and front-runners, Tania Ellis has, over the years, continuously set the agenda by identifying new trends and business concepts built on values of ethics, responsibility, sustainability and meaning. This has made her an expert commentator with regular features and contributions in national and international media like, such as Eco-Business.com, Berlingske Tidende, Børsen, Mandag Morgen, the South African Human Capital Review, The European Financial Review and The Guardian.
We look very much forward to hear this formidable, forward-thinking woman speak of her life, her work and why her subject excites her.
