China Cultural Awareness

Our 'China Cultural Awareness' training course, can be delivered in a classroom setting or via webinar. It is possible for webinar recordings to be uploaded to an eLearning platform, along with supplementary resources, quizzes and case studies for future access.

Aims of the course

When doing business with people from China, it's important to understand that the business culture differs greatly.  To build trusting relationships and to maximise your outcomes, it's essential that you understand Chinese culture.  By understanding the culture, you will appreciate the expectations that your Chinese counterparts have of you, the Chinese business approach and unspoken business rules. 

This is an online course, developed by China business experts and run by our sister company, 'Commisceo Global Consulting'.  The course will give you practical insights to help shape your strategies and materials and the ability to approach your transactions productively and with confidence. 

The course can be accessed via the Commisceo Global Consulting website, or, uploaded to in house learning management systems.
