Understanding China


China is part of every multinational’s supply chain. Whether it’s manufacturing of components, assembly of finished products, providing outsourced technical support, or growing from a niche to a major consumer market, China is critical to a company’s success. It’s ironic that it is so misunderstood.

This one-day Understanding China course will equip new arrivals with the necessary skills that will allow them to hit the ground running. Trainees will be exposed to the cultural challenges of working in the world’s largest market, with respect to staff, customers, and suppliers. Trainees will also learn tips and tricks that will build goodwill, reduce tension, and build respect from the Chinese that they engage.

All seven modules in this program are based on ClarkMorgan’s TAPE methodology, ensuring trainees practice the techniques and are evaluated by the trainer before moving to the next skill.



This course was very useful to help me to have a good way to communicate with clients, including both Europeans and Australians.
