CHINA SEMINAR: BEYOND THE HEADLINES

A dynamic analysis of Chinese political and policy developments, and how they will impact U.S. companies in the Year of the Snake

The New Year is bringing political change on both sides of the Pacific, while headlines provide few details on how these shifts will impact daily operations of companies doing business in China or alter the landscape for American companies exploring Chinese opportunities.

Join us for breakfast on February 6 in Cincinnati, Ohio or Louisville, Kentucky (or via webcast) to gain insight from James Sasser, former United States Ambassador to China and a former U.S. Senator from Tennessee, along with his son, Gray Sasser, member at Frost Brown Todd in Nashville and adjunct professor of Asian Business and Political Economies at Belmont University.

In addition, best practices will be shared by industry professionals who look forward to discussing with you China hot topics and current state of the China labor market (and how U.S. companies are managing). Once again this year, we expect broad, informative interaction among participants.

Specific Topics include:

  • China’s new leadership and its economic relationship with the U.S.
  • Why businesses are increasing their footprint in China
  • Re-shoring update
  • Changing dynamics of the Chinese labor market
  • Recruiting and staffing for success
  • Key retention practices
  • Cultural differences and training

Panelists:

  • Robert Smith, Papa John’s International
  • Jason McDaniel, French Oil Mill Machinery Company
  • Mark Ramsey, East West Associates (former Owens Coming China Director)
  • Pei Zhang, Frost Brown Todd LLC

Moderator:

  • Alex Bryant, East West Associates

Continue increasing your China HR knowledge now by reading Talent Crunch. The live Cincinnati session at Frost Brown Todd’s downtown office will be broadcast from the Frost Brown Todd office in Louisville as well. In addition, the session will be available by webcast.
