My profile says such things about me as public relations strategist, brand manager, and researcher.
But when you get right down to it, I'm much more — I'm an entrepreneur, a marketer, a coach, a project manager, a social media evangelist and cross-cultural business developer (ask me things about how to brand, communicate and be successful when dealing with business, stakeholder relationships, even crisis in different cultures, you will get more than you expect).
I'm also a big believer in the power of efficient networking, being a bridge, spotting the cross-cultural business-oriented opportunities, connecting talents with opportunities.
I believe that we, as humans, don't buy "stuff." We don't make decisions based on features and benefits. We make decisions based on emotion, "gut feel", brand promise, and long-term relationships.
Teaching taught me the most: to work with people where they are, figure out their needs and show up prepared to add value to their lives. It takes passion and guts to run a classroom, imagination, and humor to keep folks checked in, and empathy and patience to provide useful feedback. I have coached 500+ businessmen (including 50+ executives) in 3 different countries.
My background, while extensive, isn't traditional, helping entrepreneurs expand their business in China and Latin America (including facilitating Chinese startups to win in foreign markets) is one of my biggest passions.
Specialties include International public relations and cross-cultural networking strategy, business development/sales, executive coaching, public speaking, social media marketing, and branding. I'm also very good at playing flutes, singing Chinese operas & Latin dance. And I make the delicious soup.
I'm right over at [email protected] if there is anything that I can help you. Please feel free to drop me a message.
