Stockholm Chess Challenge
— It is important for Data Respons to enable young people to grow their talent and create arenas for them to prosper, says Kenneth Ragnvaldsen. The Stockholm Chess Challenge is the perfect place and maybe we will discover the next Magnus Carlsen, Ragnvaldsen continues.
Another important reason why we are engaged in this tournament is that the type of skills chess players use are very similar to those we are looking for in our specialists at Data Respons. We want employees who are able to focus, think analytically and tactically and who has stamina and courage, says Kenneth Ragnvaldsen.
