Next week telecom access of the Europe office of the China Speakers Bureau will be limited and part of the week fully cut off. Our telecom provider will replace cables from Tuesday 14 March to (and including) Thursday 16 March during office hours.
James Roy of the renowned China Market Research Group has joined the China Speakers Bureau.
James is an associate principal and focuses on retail operations and consumer good companies. He has more than ten years of China experience under his belt. He has worked with retail clients including KFC, Hugo Boss, Shanghai Tang, Chloe, MCM, Ashley Furniture, and Groupe Adeo.
After a hectic June, the China Speakers Bureau is preparing for a sun-induced slow down. While Asia and the US officially have no summer break – unlike Europe where we now even suffer from a heatwave – business tends to slowdown till early August across the continents.
The Year of the Goat is approaching fast, and the China Speakers Bureau wants to take the opportunity to wish its clients, speakers and other stake holders all the best for the upcoming year. 2015 has already started great, and we do not see how the goat could interfere with that.
One of the tools we are happy to use at the China Speakers Bureau is our digital radar. In a combination of rss-feeds from Google news and a good rss-reader (currently INO-reader), we see when our speakers pop up online, often before those speakers have noticed that themselves.
At least, that was the practice until earlier this week. Now our digital radar seems to be broken. Hundreds of feeds are flooding in, sometimes articles from 2005. What is worse: we have not yet a clue what is causing this problem.
