I consider myself as a creator. To me, the most important thing is how many useful things I create, whether articles, podcasts, campaigns, talks, or anything else.
Being in marketing and communications industry for more than a decade, I familiar with both western and Chinese business cultures which can give multinational corporations a distinct advantage in opening and growing their international market. I specialise in developing marketing and communication strategy and PR campaigns to attract and engage with customers.
