This for me was kind of a culture shock. I had heard my Danish teacher say that people in Danish society really considered themselves equal, but I hadn’t realized to what extent. I always assumed she was exaggerating when she said if she was working and needed to talk to the CEO, she would just call up his or her number and set up an appointment. My classmate found the CEOs contact information and emailed him. After a few back and forth interactions through email, we were able to set up an appointment with him and interview him about his company and the progress they are making. The interview was wonderful, but what I took away from it was a true understanding of how flat Danish social hierarchy really is. It’s one thing to hear someone tell you about it but it’s a completely different experience when you see it in action.
