Tackling Global Leadership Challenges

Tackling Global Leadership Challenges


Copenhagen, Denmark – Approximately 50 guests joined us recently for a Danish American Business Forum event on Global Leadership hosted by Mærsk, to learn about strategies and tools for working across boundaries and preparing leaders for today’s global leadership demands. Participants gained valuable insights into how to tackle leadership challenges from global, personal and organizational perspectives.

Featured speakers included:

  • Aperian Global’s Dr. Ernest “Ernie” Gundling, Co-Founder and Managing Partner
  • Jens H. Jensen, Head of HR at Maersk Group Services
  • Mads Mikkelsen, Leadership and Talent Development, Danske Bank


Ernie Gundling, visiting Denmark from California, covered the global aspect of leadership, with a particular focus on bridging the gap between US and Denmark.

Jens H. Jensen provided practical advice from his experience as an expatriate in the US and discussed the importance of not underestimating the subtle cultural differences between the US and Denmark!

And, finally, we heard from Mads Mikkelsen, on Danske Bank’s “local to global” transition and how they support their leaders to succeed in a global work environment.


Check out a summary of the day’s highlights (and a short video) for tackling global leadership challenges here.
