Are you a manager or leader currently doing, or looking to do business within China?
With the country presently experiencing rapid economic, cultural, political and social changes, the way China and their workforce approach business is constantly being transformed. Managers and leaders from Australia can often face challenges working in this rapidly changing, complex business environment.
Join us for the next instalment in AIM’s ‘Essence of Leadership’ Series where Dr. Shuang Ren and Professor Ken Parry FAIM from Deakin University will share their insights into the key challenges managers and leaders can face when they do business with China, in China or for Chinese organisations. During their presentation Dr Ren and Professor Parry will provide capability building strategies which can assist you in overcoming these challenges as well as provide insights into:
- Better understanding the expectations of leaders and staff from Chinese organisations
- The many contexts within which your leadership must work in China
The presentation will be based on content and research from Dr Ren’s book: Business Leadership Development in China.
We hope to see you on Wednesday, 26th April for this not to be missed event!
