"TAKING A LOOK AT CHINA: Negotiating With China. Negotiating In China: Business Deals. Daily Life. Cultural Elements."

Wednesday 27 February


Cocktail. Ta-Wei's Presentation. Plat du Jour. More Great


Our Guest of Honor

Ta-Wei Chao

Business and Negotiation Consultant on China

"TAKING A LOOK AT CHINA: Negotiating With China. Negotiating In China: Business Deals. Daily Life. Cultural Elements."

Given China’s unprecedented economic growth and its integration into the global business landscape, doing business in or with China is important for companies who want to maintain their competitive edge and growth. It is also a growing market and resource for small businesses, consultants, services and tourism. Due to Chinese historical and cultural uniqueness,
negotiation in China still poses great challenges for foreigners, in business and in daily life.

Ta-Wei will introduce several historical and cultural elements influencing Chinese negotiating behavior, explain why they are challenging for foreigners, and share with us how to overcome these challenges. Ta-Wei Chao is currently a visiting scholar at the Institute for Research and Education on Negotiation in Europe (IRENE), at ESSEC Business School, Paris, and is simultaneously a consulting manager in the Taipei office of Accenture

Over the last several years with Accenture, he worked extensively in the greater China area, to help his clients achieve high-performance in business by enhancing their negotiation capabilities. He is currently studying 'Cross-Cultural Negotiation' issues in IRENE, and acted as one of the training facilitators to help ESSEC IRENE with training delivery activities, such as the European Commission Negotiation Workshop, ENA Negotiation Workshop, ESSEC MS "Leading Teams" Workshop, ESSEC MBA Negotiation Workshop, ESSEC & MANNHEIM EMBA Negotiation Workshop...etc. Based on his results with ESSEC IRENE over the past year, his latest 2-day/4-module training workshop "Negotiate Business Deals In China" will be launched by ESSEC IRENE this Spring.
