About this seminar:
The best way to manage conflict in China is to avoid it completely – but how can international negotiators avoid confrontation with Chinese counter-parties and still deliver value? They must walk a delicate line between building lasting relationships and defending their own core interests. One slip, however, can scuttle your China deal and cost your firm a huge opportunity. Andrew Hupert of NYU’s Shanghai campus and publisher of ChinaSolved.com & ChineseNegotiation.com will differentiate between Conflict Avoidance and Conflict Management and uncover the sources of most disagreement in Chinese deal-making. This presentation is designed for experienced deal-makers who want to improve their success rate in the vital China market.
