“Your presentation was fascinating and engaging, delivered with humor, and had our members discussing it for the next two days, which say a lot.” At the China Speakers Bureau we received enthusiastic comments from Kathleen Deutsch, vice-chairperson of the Lawyers Associated Worldwide, after William Bao Bean delivered his speech there October 2015 in Shanghai on how China is changing.
The assignment was challenging enough: a group of critical lawyers from all over the world, including the major cities in China. Walking the small rope between telling how it is, without making Chinese participants upset, is an achievement, reason enough to share the comments with you.
Kathleen Deutsch wrote in full: “Our group loved your presentation and appreciated your direct approach to describing Chinese business culture. Your presentation was fascinating and engaging, delivered with humor, and had our members discussing it for the next two days, which say a lot. Although we have had similar types of presentations delivered by Chinese business people and lawyers, no one has been willing to discuss some of the important but somewhat uncomfortable aspects of Chinese business culture that Westerners really need to understand. You were the first to address the good, the bad and the ugly for everyone to consider.”
