Prior to his current role, Nicolas Mackel was posted at Luxembourg's permanent representation to the EU.
He was deputy chief of mission at Luxembourg's Embassy in Washington, DC, and then consul general in Shanghai, in charge of promoting Luxembourg's economic interests throughout China as the executive director of the Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office.
Tereba has lived in London, Paris, and Abu Dhabi, where she was the business development services manager of the German-Emirati Chamber of Commerce. After four years there, she moved to Berlin, where she helped set up the first foreign office of the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce abroad and founded Business Club Luxembourg. In 2019, she returned to Luxembourg to take up her current post as director international affairs at the chamber.
Both speakers shared their experiences of living and working in international locations, the role their organisations play to help develop business at the international level and how the pandemic has shaped how they work. Tereba, who has lived and worked in the United Arab Emirates, also shared how the chamber is helping to organise several upcoming missions as the Expo 2020 in Dubai--postponed because of the pandemic--will commence on 1 October for six months. Finally, Mackel also shared his thoughts on how Brexit is shaping Luxembourg’s financial centre.
The panel, moderated by Delano’s Natalie Gerhardstein, was followed by networking. The next Delano Live takes place on 16 November. More information here.
