Don’t rely on business school teachings to get by in the real world, especially when conducting business in China! I highly recommend this course to anyone doing international business.

One of my development targets this year is to expand my business to the Asian market. In order to do this, I will need to work to foster new relationships with those in Chinese businesses. This short course has given me great tips and advice on how to approach this while being respectful and courteous. Thank you very much.

Thanks to this course I have a better understanding of hosting business dinners for Chinese clients, appropriate business gifts and polite mannerisms and greetings. Each module was short and to the point, allowing me to fit the learning around my everyday life.

Working with people from many countries and cultures can be overwhelming at times, as I often wonder what is the correct way to approach certain conversations, particularly if there is a disagreement in opinion. Sandra Zemarityte’s Chinese business course meant that I now know how to conduct a business meeting correctly and how to say no politely – which is an invaluable skill.

Social Q’s guidance on Chinese etiquette helped me understand how to approach communication and business within Chinese culture. I now feel confident when reaching out to my Chinese partners that I am polite and show good etiquette, even across cultural boundaries. By making a few simple changes to my approach, I can now foster stronger and more positive connection.
