FOR JOBS IN TAIWAN:
I am your best choice, as I have accumulated both knowledge on the Taiwanese business culture and connections and friendships in many branches. The highlights are: heavy machinery, injection molding, advanced electronics.
FOR JOBS IN MAINLAND CHINA
On average I travel to China 1-2 times every three months. I combine task from multiple clients to optimize travel expenses to all involved.
please excuse my occasional lack of 90% success rate and no "Rising talent" status. Majority of my contracts are small "impossible tasks" by clients who want just to double-check that their product is not available... and then go unresponsive. Frustrating, but that's what it is. Also, 100% of my contracts are "success-fee paid on job done" type, so no hours billed. Apologies again.
MY SPECIAL ABILITIES:
These below three specializations combined help me to be in control of any kind of complex business situations when dealing with the Chinese business partners:
1. BUSINESS BACKGROUND:
I owned a print-house & pre-press studio for 8 years. It taught me to pay attention to detail. I have a business family background too (screen-printing). I can instantly identify the other party's needs and make sure that they are reasonable for the other side.
2. EXPERT ON CHINA & CHINESE MENTALITY
I have expert knowledge on Chinese history and culture with two major books published. Currently I am a PhD candidate at a university in Taipei.
The passion for Chinese language and culture is amazingly efficient lever which allows me to be considered a half-Chinese and thus reduce transaction risks.
3. BUILDING SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
... my own, my client's and the suppliers'. As a researcher and writer I have developed many procedures and checklists which, combined with my experience in legal issues make me a master in maintaining the so-called excess of caution.
While I specialize in wholesale purchases and product developing, I also enjoy doing small and simple jobs. They are my way to connect to new clients whose Chinese end of business I manage for long term.
1. EMERGENCY CONSULTING
I specialize in emergency consulting and negotiation in difficult cases, doing save-the-day trips to minimize or reverse damages to my clients' business.
2. RESOLVING COMMUNICATION ISSUES
If your Chinese partner became unresponsive or you feel that something's wrong
