100% Effective is pleased to announce its continuing overseas growth with the opening of its first office in Denmark.

In the past two years, we have seen our customer base outside the UK grow. In response, plans were made to open offices in several locations to help meet this growing demand.

The new Denmark office is the first time we will have a full-time base outside of the UK. More international offices are planned for the next 18 months, with a key focus on maintaining the long-term sustainability of the new sites.

Our international success has led to us being shortlisted for Exporter of the Year at the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards 2014. The winner will be announced on 30th October 2014.

Commenting on the expansion, Managing Director John Wellwood said: “We are delighted to open our first overseas office in Denmark after three years of demand from this market.

“This move is in line with our expansion strategy and shows the value of our proposition and excellent customer service. We look forward to a long and prosperous future in the Nordic countries. Later this year we expect to announce further international expansion.”

Jan Sørensen, head of the Danish Office

100% Effective’s Denmark office will be run by Jan Sørensen, a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and a training consultant with over ten years’ experience.

He said: “I am very pleased that our long co-operation with 100% Effective is now further strengthened. The establishment of an office in Denmark will have a great positive effect on the visibility of 100% Effective’s services in Denmark, and will raise the awareness of Lean Six Sigma in Denmark even more because of their unique concept.

“The market for Lean and Six Sigma training as self-study using eLearning is big, and so far almost unexploited in Denmark, where Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt training is expensive to attend. Prices average 50,000 – 90.000kr. (£5,280 – £9,510) for a Black Belt certification, and the fact that the training is typically of longer duration (time that can be difficult to fit into a busy schedule) means that this certification have been reserved for a smaller audience, until now.

“With 100% Effective’s eLearning concept you can now get high quality learning at a significantly lower cost and the opportunity to study when it fits into your daily life. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt courses are inclusive of full certification including project submission and evaluation, and offer the same standard as typical class-based courses”.
