Bridging the Gap in U.S.-China Negotiation and Communication Styles

May 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am CDT

/ Free

Join us for a program addressing how different styles of negotiating and communicating used by American and Chinese companies and government officials can impact, and sometimes derail, successful business dealings and government-to-government negotiations. We’ll look at common pitfalls and strategies to overcome them, to achieve more effective communication, resulting in better commercial and diplomatic relationships.
