The Supper Club and the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) are delighted to invite you to join them for a roundtable seminar with Mr. Bo JI, the Assistant Dean of Global Executive Education and Chief Representative for CKGSB Europe.

With Brexit potentially closing European markets to UK entrepreneurs, many are looking to new markets to scale. China represents 50% of global economic growth, with The Economist forecasting that China will overtake America as the largest economy in the world by 2024. China has 1.3 billion consumers and 680 million mobile internet users. 

But the time, resources and energy required to operate in China is substantial, even for large corporations, so how can scaling businesses build a foundation for long term success in China? 

Mr. Bo JI will share his insight on the economic trends and changes in China. He will also offer his perspective on the opportunities and challenges facing globally-minded founders and CEOs of high growth businesses as they look to expand their businesses into China – and the mindset needed to succeed. 

This will be followed by a Q&A and discussion over lunch. This co-hosted event is exclusively offered to a select group of members from The Supper Club who will also be offered an opportunity to join the CKSGB’s China CEO program in November.
