On Thursday, June 25, 2009, I presented for a Kiplinger Audio Conference called China Today - Wide Open for your Business. The conference focused on specific tactics the Chinese government is taking to counter the global recession, including investment in second tier cities. My presentation helped my colleague at ChinaOrigins Associates to secure new clients. As a creative, marketing and market research professional, my expertise lies in identifying markets and defining market direction to lead ground-breaking programs that attract and retain customers in emerging markets, such as China, and established markets in the U.S.
