Cross Cultural Training to conquer the Chinese Opportunity
Inbound visitors or an outbound mission – interact politely and build your platform
The opportunity presented by almost 1.5 billion Chinese consumers is tantalising – one pair of socks to every Chinese is a dream often shattered when the reality of selling in China dawns.
Double your budget and your time, halve your expectations shout some…
Open a China office only to find the rules have changed
Hook up with a Chinese partner, except they stole your brand …
Even being Chinese doesn’t protect you from the complexities of doing business in China, but having Chinese Language skills and cultural understanding is a great advantage.
Chinese Culture Training
When in Rome … When in China you need to know what the Chinese want, how they want it, and how to behave. A masterclass on Australian etiquette run by the doyen of etiquette and no spring chicken, June Dally Watkins presented to the Chinese audience on table manners, meeting and greeting and business interaction with Aussies. She is going great guns in China too apparently at the ripe old age of 92.
Chinese culture training then ought to be about using chopsticks and saying Ni hao, right?
Well not quite! Chin Communications has developed a number of training programs designed to help you understand how Chinese think, communicate and behave – what drives that behaviour and how you can engage appropriately – even without a word of Chinese. We also include information on Chinese social media and marketing and can package up a program to suit any need or purpose.
Chinese Language Training
The reality is that if you start today it will take years to come close to fluency in Mandarin. You’d be best to go and live there for a few years to accelerate the process. You can however pick up a few key phrases and etiquette tricks to win friends and develop a sharp appreciation of Chinese cultural differences through training. You can also master Chinese pronunciation without ever looking at a Chinese character.
