* Due to the impact of Hurricane Irma, Dr. Briggs's lecture tomorrow is canceled. We will announce the new date later this week or next week.
The presentation discusses the opportunities and challenges facing western companies entering the highly competitive business arena in mainland China. Dr. Briggs will discuss the preparatory processes and knowledge that are essential to business entrepreneurs who wish to engage in contemporary and future business of any type in China, and the implications of Chinese history, culture, government, and business practices on such opportunities. A prominent feature of the presentation is a detailed discussion regarding the numerous variables involved in preparing for and functioning in a business culture that is in many ways markedly different from our own.
