UPDATED CONTENT: Work Visas and Immigration under President Trump

  • Holland & Knight LLC

OBS: Updated content!
Special focus on A, E, L, O, and H type visas, both initial and renewals, as well as the process to apply for green cards and citizenship!

 

Immigration was perhaps the most hotly debated topic in the recently concluded U.S. presidential election. In a surprise upset, Donald J. Trump became the 45th U.S. President and immediately made good on a wide range of number of immigration restrictions. It is time to assess the election’s legal ramifications for the millions of legal and illegal immigrants currently in the United States, how the new administration’s policies might affect employers headquartered here and abroad, and the new stricter policies’ consequences for prospective U.S. residents.  

Please join us as we explore the current state of affairs and expected future changes, and how you, your families and colleagues, and the Danish community may be affected.

DACCNY event: Brand Denmark

Harnessing the Power of "Brand Denmark"

The U.S. News & World Report "Best Countries Rankings" ranks Denmark as the #10 country brand in the world. What is it about Denmark that makes it such a powerful brand, and how can Danish companies use that to help their own brands as a marketing tool in the U.S.?

Anna Blender, a Senior Vice President at brand strategy firm BAV Consulting heads up the Nation Branding practice at BAV and helped develop the Best Countries Rankings in partnership with US News and Wharton Business School. In this session, Anna will unpack the elements of “Brand Denmark” that make it so appealing – and will also discuss some of the weaknesses that might be holding it back.  She’ll present examples of brand that have successfully used their “country of origin” mark to improve their status, and others that have been hurt just the same way. At the end of the presentation, the attendees will participate in a short “brand-building workshop” that will provide them with the tools to implement the learnings in everyday marketing and business.

Program:
6-6:30 – Networking
