Shanghai Barcamp Fall 2017


Cost: Free

Please register here

What is Barcamp? Barcamp is unique kind of technology event, because the goal is to give everyone — including YOU — an opportunity to share ideas and actively participate.

Here’s how it works:

At every Barcamp there is a big board with a grid. On one side are various room numbers, and on the other is time, in 30 minute increments.

ANYONE who wants to give a presentation or demonstration simply writes their name and topic in one of the squares. There are multiple sessions going at once throughout the day, so there are enough opportunities for everyone to have time (if they want it).

EVERYONE is invited to attend any talks or activities at Barcamp!

Here are some talks we had at the last Barcamp: https://www.meetup.com/Techyizu/events/237971536/

There is only one rule: No advertisements for your business or product! Just let your own energy and nerdiness shine through.

If you want to speak, you can sign up on the morning of the event.  If you know your topic ahead of time, please tell us at [masked].  We’ll put your name and topic on the website!

The goal is to get everybody involved!

As always, Barcamp is free, and everyone is welcome to join!

Make your lunch productive by joining 12-15 motivated young professionals from within the AmCham community to share resources and best practices for success and career development. Young professionals interested in expanding their network, becoming more involved with AmCham China, and getting to know their peers in the community are encouraged to register for this informal discussion over lunch.

This month AmCham is delighted to host Su Cheng Harris-Simpson, Founder and CEO of SCHSAsia. Su Cheng has built a reputation as a strong and consistent partner for her clients in China. She will share tips on how to better understand and anticipate cleints’ needs and direct your workflow accordingly. Statistics show that when women lead, or are promoted to high positions, business profitably soars. However, only 8% of board members in China are women, despite comprising 50% of entry-level positions. As Founder and CEO of SCHSAsia, Su Cheng will also help us understand the gender dymanics at play in the business community in China and how young professionals can better position themselves.
