|China’s Great Media Wall: Opportunities and Censorship
It’s easy to make assumptions about the media in China. That all channels are tightly controlled, restricted and largely ‘closed’ to authentic or creative communication. That if businesses have one big idea, and put it across using one channel – most often TV – they can expect it to reach and influence all their target audiences.
This is no longer the case: China’s media environment is extremely dynamic, powerful, complex and fragmented. There are opportunities for businesses looking to enter the market to tell a powerful story that wins customers and builds loyalty, but they need to understand and adapt their marketing to the ways people use media today.

|SME CEO Roundtable Series – Creating Compensation and Incentive Structures for High Performance
Talent attraction is always challenging for SMEs comparing to large companies, but talent retention and mobilization may be even more challenging due to the limited resources of SMEs. SME leaders always find their employees poached by large companies with better salary or more promising future, and the high turnover in the company increases its operation costs and business risks. A good compensation and incentive (C&I) scheme can sustain positive changes by retaining the right talents and enabling their improved performance.

|A Friendly Cingles Evening
There is a very popular dating TV program called “If You Are The One” (Chinese name is 非诚勿扰) in China. Many singles and their parents watch it to look for partners.
There are many reasons for being single.
Our Cingles event provides an opportunity to meet someone new. Even if you don’t find the right person, it might help you escape from past memories that are haunting you.
Apart from the two above examples there are many reasons why people remain single – too picky, too busy, too much internet, etc. Even majority of them are very outstanding people in their domain and also have good conditions and high social status.
This event will no doubt give people a chance who want to end their single life.
Our event is very different from the traditional singles party which is normally organized by marriage agency. Since we organized the social networking events for 9 years, our participants tend to be higher level.

Beijing today is no longer a consumer hardship posting for expatriates.
The opposite, there is a wide and very diverse range of products and services available. In fact there is now so much choice that at times it is hard to know what to buy or which service provider to use.
The ELAs were designed so that the Expatriate community could show their support for their preferred vendors.
The winning vendor will be able to proudly confirm to new arrivals and old hands alike that they were awarded an ELA in recognition of the quality of their services.
The 2016 ELAs will be granted to 25 categories of service providers.
The winners were decided by an on-line voting process.
There was no cost involved in being nominated and it was open to any provider of goods or services that might be of interest to Beijing’s expatriate community.
