Stepping into a new environment - be it a new industry or a new culture can be daunting. During the transition, things aren't always set up perfectly on the ground.

Ethics and culture in China influences all areas of daily life, including doing business. What makes the China a highly sought after destination can also be attributed to its unique characteristics - that many have been figuring their way about.

How can we manage customer relations in a city that is moving increasingly faster? How can I cultivate innovation and a enterprising spirit in a new environment? How can I establish trust and build my individual brand?

To answer your questions, Digital Bootcamp Asia invites you to join their upcoming networking event that will cover a broad array of issues from starting your business and inculcating innovation at every step, to marketing your personal brand and building a community in China.
