Women entreprenueurs participants in China Center, US Embassy in Beijing. The event was organized by US Embassy (the officer in the middle),
On September 29, I delivered a workshop on How to Pitch Your Stories with 50 outstanding women enterpreneurs in China. The event was organized by US Embassy in Beijing.
Each of the participants have their own business, some are startups and some are healthy small busineses. In the workshop, they learned a methdology that I have developed to put togehter the value proposition of their company or product. They also had the opportunity to pracitice the 30-seconds elevator pitch of their business or produt, and get feedbacks from each other. They then learned how to tell a story to make their value proposition stick with the audience if they have two more minutes. Everyone was excited about their stories.
Here is the post from the US Embassy to advertise the event.

I am very impressed by the US Embassy activities in China. With my very limited exposure to the US Embassy in my life, I only knew that the Embassy handles visa applications and sometimes important diplomatic arrangements and issues. In the fall of 2016, I was invited as a speaker to China by US Embassy, and they arranged a series of events for me to share with various audiences in three cities from September 25 to 30, From this engagement, I discovered the other many things that the US Embassy does. Almost every American employee I met in the US Embassy or Consulate speaks Chinese! They are very much integrated to the local culture and economy. I was very impressed by the efforts they made.
Below is one of the event promotions the US Embassy in Beijing did for my speech. They used the most popular Chinese social media tools such as Weibo and WeChat to promote the event, with Chinese and English. Impressive, right?
