Professor Xiaojun Wang, visiting scholar from Wuhan, China

Join Professor Xiaojun Wang, visiting scholar from Wuhan, China, for a presentation and discussion on how to conduct business in China.  During the presentation, you will learn how to:

  • Strengthen relationships with your Chinese business partners
  • Distinguish variations among China’s ethnic regions and learn the importance of adjusting your manners to meet expectations in different cities
  • Learn the art of greeting and exchanging business cards and gifts “the Chinese way”

Following the presentation, Professor Wang will walk you through the details of a business banquet – seating arrangements, eating different foods using chopsticks, returning toasts. You will “learn by doing” as you practice the “dos and don’ts” of a Chinese business banquet while enjoying a variety of menu items at Imperial Garden.
