About the Event

Wherever in the world you sell IT systems, pills, cosmetics, cars or consulting, you must prepare for the China challenge.

If China’s market is the next upward jump for your business, you must prepare yourself, your leaders and teams. If you prefer to stick with your known market, you (or your clients and suppliers) must be ready to face Chinese competition.

Navigating China’s unique business culture requires specific skills that are far from obvious even for seasoned international business leaders. Incoming information is confusing. Politicians exaggerate its dangers. Investors chase endless opportunities. Business consultants promise to smoothen the way but transfer few skills to clients. Whoever they follow, leaders must take responsibility for their investors, employees and customers.

This two-hour virtual workshop with intercultural leadership coach & consultant Gabor Holch introduces 5 principles that leaders can apply to China-proof their business plan, strategy, product or service localization, marketing, or their own management methods in a wide range of industries. The 5 principles are rooted in intercultural leadership theory and 20+ years of hands-on experience, and provide a simple checklist for choosing the right people, structuring projects or crafting competitive strategies for China, or for sectors where competitors use “the China model”.

Join us to:

  1. Understand why most international businesspeople prepare themselves for the wrong cultural challenges (in the wrong order),
  2. Discover preparation shortcuts when you have limited time to plan, smart priorities when you think ahead.
  3. Receive a strategic workbook suitable for business development, product or service localisation, human resource management, and more,
  4. Unpack failed and successful cases we saw during our team’s 20-year experience coaching and advising international leadership teams,
  5. Discuss your own challenges, successes and plans, and their implications for daily leadership work in or with China.

Participants also receive free samples from Gabor Holch’s recent book Dragon Suit: The golden age of expatriate executives in China on the specific issues we discuss at the virtual workshop.
