Part of the China Ready Suite - Singaporean professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) often have to meet or communicate their China business counterparts over business-related matters. The lack faced by such PMEs is typically the knowledge and skill to effectively interact with their Chinese counterparts to successfully develop their business.

Lessons are conducted in a structured yet pragmatic manner as lectures are blended with group discussions, role-plays and individual assessments. The group discussions give participants the opportunities to share their experience while presentation and role-playing help the practice and application of concepts and approaches learned through the course.
