Presentation of the evening by John Fu, China Insight:

Building Business Success in China: a case study of Danish companies 

China has tremendous growth potential in many vertical markets. To many Danish companies, China is culturally foreign yet strategically important. While many still consider China a low-cost manufacturing partner, more and more companies are investing in China for its talent pool, innovativeness and premium market potential. 

How do you secure your business success during the time of change? This presentation will invite you to explore the recent growth trends in China, cultural and business challenges, and how Danish companies could create better business success. Looking at both challenges and best practice cases, we will discuss:

  • China and its growth trends
  • Becoming a global leader: what Danish executives need to learn
  • Best practice: building a winning business in China

Alumni living and working in China or simply passing through Shanghai are invited for an evening with networking, an inspirational presentation and networking over light refreshments. John Fu, Speaker, Coach and Advisor, inspires you to build successful businesses in China, based on a case study on Danish companies. Reconnect with likeminded alumni and be inspired by our speaker of the evening. Don’t miss the chance for networking and reminisce about your Alma Mater.
