"Ten years ago I fell in love with my Swedish husband. Eight years ago I fell in love with Sweden. We are far from the traditional couple, we commute between Gothenburg and Lidköping vid Vänern. There we can tick all the cliché boxes: red wooden house along the lake, bastu in the garden, beautiful nature and quietness from the countryside. In Gothenburg we enjoy the vibrance of the city life. It reminds me a great deal of Rotterdam which is quite obvious since the Dutch have helped to build Gothenburg, which will be 400 years ago in 2021. An excellent opportunity to celebrate and strengthen the Dutch-Swedish connection!
The first Dutch Chamber event I joined in 2012 was in my role as marketing officer and sales support for the Dutch family-owned shiprepair yard Damen Shiprepair in Gothenburg. This event gave me useful insights about the Swedish corporate culture and was the kick-start of my Dutch/Swedish network. I highly value my relationships and look forward to connecting with them in order to create many inspiring and giving events in region west. "
