Audience are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
Have you ever felt that you didn’t come across as smooth, polished or sophisticated enough, because of mere language and culture differences; and/or because you could not effectively present your ideas and bring projects forward?
Have you ever felt frustrated for not being able to form connections, influence decisions and motivate changes with business partners, coworkers, and bosses?
Are you sometimes discouraged with the concept of “glass ceilings”, and feeling unable to either enter or accelerate your career journey fast enough?
EQ (Emotional Quotient; an important soft skill), Effective Communication, and Public Speaking comprise the backbone of society. Oftentimes, Chinese professionals are strong at technical skills, but sometimes fall short of demonstrating strong leadership qualities with persuasive communication aptitude, language proficiency, and savvy cultural readiness. All of this can have a significant impact on your career and ultimately your level of success – regardless of your particular field of work.
