Hot on the heels of Jenny Plaister-Ten's new book on coaching across cultures comes Maiqi Ma's excellent view on doing business with China - Win with China Volume 1 – Acclimatisation for Mutual Success Doing Business with China.
Available on Amazon this is Maiqi's first English language book and has been very well received:
"This little book packs a real punch. It blends lots of good practical advice about how to do business in China with an explanation of how to understand the culture and deal with individuals", John Knights, Chairman of LeaderShape Global.
This “bite-size” book lives up to its genre. It gives you bite-size, digestible information on starting and doing business with China and its key message can be summarized in one sentence from Chapter 5: "Managing a [business] relationship is like managing a marriage." If you pay close attention to this analogy, you are on the right track.
Ma draws from her first hand experience of growing up, living and working in China to share what it takes to have win-win business relationship with China. Her advice is down-to-earth and practical. Her insights, especially those on Chinese Government regulations, policies and practices, are incredibly valuable.
An active participant in the OIBC and a long-serving steering committee member, Maiqi is also a faculty member of LeaderShape Global Ltd. She is dedicated to assisting western businesses to enter China and help Chinese businesses expand globally. She runs a training and consultancy business in Oxford: MOLAES Chinese Business Consultancy.
