Gain confidence in running your China-facing business with Sinophoria Chinese language and culture courses
Working for a Chinese company for the first time was quite daunting.
Simple things like people’s names, email etiquette were difficult.
When my company offered the chance to attend some Chinese language and culture training I jumped at the chance. Baozhen got a lot done in a few weeks and I’m certain my communications are now much more effective. I have a lot of contact with HQ and so I’m putting her learning into practice every day! I learnt a lot about the fascinating Chinese culture and we have some laughs in the process.
Baozhen Shi was recommended to Lynton by the UKTI (DIT) as an experienced translator and Chinese cultural liaison. Since then, Baozhen and Lynton have worked in partnership with great success, developing and maintaining a strategic relationship with a key supplier in the Far East.
This has been achieved via regular video conference calls and, on some occasions, site visits. Baozhen has demonstrated a good knowledge of international commercial activities and a professional, meticulous but enthusiastic approach to her work.
Although Baozhen has acted on a consultancy basis, she has presented Lynton in a great light at all stages and operated with our best interests at heart.
It is very rare to find someone combining strategic commercial insight, legal background with first hand cultural and linguistic knowledge of China. Baozhen has demonstrated an adept ability in all these areas. Her excellent support is greatly appreciated.
This combined with her contagious enthusiasm and energy has helped us considerably in our business development activities across several projects in China.
I would not hesitate to recommend Baozhen to companies that need strategic business development and relationship management in China.
I thought I would let you know that everything went really well at the party last week (in China). Our individual speeches went great and the poem went down a storm! Everyone was so impressed with all of us and really appreciated the effort we had gone to! Thank you so much for supporting the three of us and making it possible.
谢谢 and 新年快乐!
Baozhen helped me enormously with Chinese language and understanding Chinese business culture as our business started trading in Taiwan. She helps businesses develop a mutual understanding.
Sepura undertook the services of Baozhen Shi as part of an internal drive to train our staff on Chinese culture and how it differed from western cultures. We also included some learning of some key Mandarin phrases with a great insight into the characters used to build Mandarin sentences. Baozhen was very engaging, keeping the lessons focused but also fun.
I would highly recommend Baozhen to any other western company that is working with Chinese companies, the insight and understanding taught to our staff has really helped our relationships with our Chinese owners.
