On October 3, 2014 DACCSW welcomed illustrious founder of Blue Water Shipping. Mr. Kurt Skov, as our featured speaker for the fall signature lunch. The event was well attended with more than sixty of our member and guest present. Mærsk Drilling turned out in full force with a table of ten as did our board member Thomas Damsgaard, who had filled another table of ten with industry colleagues and friends. Needles to say all of the Blue Water boys attended in full force as did a lot of our other members within the shipping industry, seen in the crowd: John Moyell, Finn Rasmussen and Mads Engelstoft.
We enjoyed visiting our member, Chef Søren Pedersen's new venue on Dunlavy Street. Søren served up a delicious, three course "market cuisine" lunch, with the sweet bite having a distinct Danish bent :Citron fromage.
Kurt Skov gave us a fantastic insight into the enterprise that is now Blue Water a global company started from humble beginnings in Esbjerg, Denmark, where they are still headquartered today. He told us his very compelling story from a less than top-end student to successful entrepreneur with both humor and humility, THANK YOU Kurt!
