International Talent Conference December 2016 at Arla

To address the need for more qualified international talent in Denmark, Copenhagen Capacity has hosted its second International Talent Conference for the year 2016. The theme for this event was: 'Your future career in Denmark'

This conference is held bi-annually to facilitate matchmaking between Danish companies seeking international talent with international students in Denmark.

In December 12th, 2016, 150 Youth Goodwill Ambassadors were invited to this exclusive event where they had the opportunity to meet and interact with various company representatives from across Denmark.

Students were treated to inspiring speeches from influential speakers such as Natalie Knight (CFO of Arla Foods),  Sally Khallash (founder of Behavioral Strategy and author), Sarah Barron (Senior Director of Talent and Leadership at Arla) and more. 

Other events of the day included workshops with the participating companies Arla, Mærsk, COWI, momondo, Unity Technologies and Systematic, which provided a space where companies could pitch their talent needs to the ambassadors and the ambassadors could interact with the company representatives.

It was super exciting to host so many international talents at our head office for the International Talent Conference, and we were all impressed by the high number of talented and ambitious profiles we had the opportunity to meet. We very much enjoy the opportunity to share our story with talents with international experience and mindset, in the hope that they are inspired to join us on our journey. They day highly contributed to that.
