|The “HOW TO” Of Organizational Integration
On the occasion of the second anniversary of DoBe Group’s International Community Festival, on July 20th, DoBe WE” will hold the lecture – The “How To” Of Organizational Integration which will be given by an expert in organizational cross-cultural conflict management, Dr Miguel Cerna.
“There is not such a thing as an organizational success unless there is integration, and there cannot be integration unless there is understanding of the mutual influence among departments”.
The history of business organizations shows that most companies are composed of separated units working under the umbrella of the organization’s name and that people in those units have little knowledge of what is going elsewhere in the organization. This disconnection represents an organizational loss that is seldom addressed, yet it significantly affects organizational survival.
Dr Miguel Cerna, an expert in organizational cross-cultural conflict management and Professor of International Management and Economics for MBA and EMBA programs at Jiaotong University, will discuss the complexity of interactions at work, the factors leading to organizational disintegration, and a generic methodology towards sustainable integration applicable to any type of organizations.
Join us and learn about METODO, a key strategy you can apply at your organization and teams to ensure that they function at their best.

|Local Marketing for Global Companies
Cost: Free. Food and Drink Included
Please register by scanning the QR at the event’s website
Global brand consistency is undoubtedly a beneficial strategy and position of market strength, however the reality is “think global, act local”. This creates persistent challenges for marketing executives across their organisational structures, agency relationships and technical infrastructure. From the local market perspective, global teams may be seen as out of touch, trying to apply a one-size-fits-all messaging model that doesn’t speak to local consumer needs and cultural realities. So how are forward-thinking global brands balancing local, multi-channel relevance with global storytelling, thematic consistency and economies of scale?
We are delighted to welcome Arthur Dagopian, Senior Director of SPRG Beijing, who will give a present on the different China strategies he has helped global corporations on in their entry, and will be joined by Georgia Yexley, the International Social Media Manager of MoBike, fresh from launching China’ innovative bike share app to the U.K. market.

Cost: Free for members. 50RMB non-member
RSVP by sending an email to [email protected]
The new Cybersecurity Law of China took effect on June 1, 2017, and follow-up assessment measures in relation to cross boarder data transmission and security review of network products and services have been released by the Cyberspace Administration of China (“CAC”) recently; however, many companies are still unclear about the specific provisions of the regulations. Given the anticipated uncertain nature of the measures to be issued by regulatory authorities and the potentially high cost of non-compliance, companies should keep track of the new Cybersecurity Law and relevant implementation measures and closely monitor related developments to ensure their businesses are well prepared for cybersecurity and data compliance.
In order to inform members about how these changes in the regulations may affect them, King and Wood Mallesons and AustCham Beijing will host an update on China’s Cybersecurity Laws, especially focusing on how the changes may affect foreign firms.
The KWM Update on China’s Cybersecurity Laws: Key Takeaways for Foreign Firms has been rescheduled to take place on Tuesday 25 July will cover:
