by Fons1 via FlickrZhang Lijia became in December the fastest mover among our corp of speakers at the China Speakers Bureau. She is, at the second place, actually the first to really come close to Shaun Rein, who retains the first place.
Jasper Becker – who only joined our service this month – appears already on the 10th position of our monthly top-10. Other newcomers in this top-10 are Rupert Hoogewerf, who is celebrating his tenth year of Rich lists and William Overholt.
Not surprisingly, with only a few exceptions, interest in speakers with a strong economic background is paramount as people are trying to make sense out of what the current economic downturn means for China, and what China could mean for the world. We note very different opinions among our speakers – not surprising so early in the financial crisis.
