On 9.8.2010, Lichi Translations hosted the second meeting of the China Forum. The forum is a power circle of successful business people, who specialize in services associated with the Chinese market.

What happened at the meeting?

We began with a 2-minute round of introductions, in which each person also outlined the referrals he was interested in. I then gave a presentation about the Chinese language. Finally, we held a brainstorming session – an open discussion about various topics that were raised.

Referrals to members of the China Forum – everyone gains

The aim of the forum is to create collaborations and to deal with referrals that come our way. From time to time, we all have clients who turn to us with a request that is outside our expertise. The natural tendency is just to say, “No, I don’t deal with that.” In a forum like the China Forum, made up of business people with complementary areas of interest, we can all do cross-referrals, knowing that we are offering our clients the best possible service.

For example:

• A client turned to Lichi with a request to translate documents into Chinese, and she also wanted inter-cultural counseling. I immediately referred her to Tal Reshef, the Chinese inter-cultural expert.

• Mapi Frankel invited Tal Reshef to give a lecture at the PTL conference for business people working in China.

Many examples of collaboration have resulted from the circle, and the purpose is that we should all grow and gain from the China Forum.

We would be delighted to enlarge the circle and invite more business people, managers and company employees with an interest in the East (China, Japan, Korea) to come along and see.

The next meeting will be on Sunday, 3rd October at 10 am, at Tal Reshef’s office in Moshav Azariah (near Latrun). Further details will appear soon on our internet site.
