Marketing Chemical, Engineering and Professional Services to China

Date and Time:

Wednesday, September 11, at the Cynwyd Club, Bala Cynwyd, PA; Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30 PM


Dr. Chan will speak on how consultants can market their specialized technical knowledge and experience in chemical sciences and chemical engineering to Chinese government organizations and corporations. His talk will include: (1) Who are the leaders of chemical sciences and chemical engineering in China; (2) How to reach these decision-makers; (3) What to say to your prospects; (4) How to price your services and get paid; and (5) How to build a trusting relationship and avoid common pitfalls. James Chan’s goal is to help CCN members find ways to realize “money moments” in China, based on his 30-minute YouTube video with Rick Schilling: "Money Moments: Recognizing Needs & Adding Value"
