Exploring how understanding Chinese Culture can impact business
- Are you managing or working with customers, suppliers and employees from different countries and cultures?
- Do you want to improve working relationships, avoid misunderstandings, improve performance of yourself, your team and the bottom line?
Today most businesses are global by nature. Instead of working with suppliers and employees from our own cultures, a large number of us are working with individuals from around the world on a daily basis.
While it enables us to serve our customers better, these cross cultural conversations also give us more opportunities to misunderstand each other.
Recognising and navigating through these differences has a profound impact on the performance of individuals and the overall team, improving the bottom line, efficiency and team moral.
Our guest speaker, Paul Bailey, General Manager (Europe) from industry leading intercultural specialist RW-3 CultureWizard will help you lead and work more effectively in a multi cultural environment by sharing:
- Insights into key challenges executives experience when working in cross cultural teams, based on CultureWizard’s 2018 survey of 1,620 executives in major organisations from 90 countries
- How does culture impact Business?
- Exploring Chinese Cultural values
- Strategies for success in cross cultural teams
- Lessons from a case study involving US and China teams working together on a billion dollar joint venture project in Shanghai, which opened with massive success in June 2016
- Drinks & nibbles will be provided for your enjoyment!
Agenda of the night:

- 7.45 pm – 8.30 pm – more networking & drinks
We look forward to seeing you and introducing you to other global industry leaders working with China and beyond!
