How to Approach Your Target Audiences and Expand Brand Awareness in China Today

Date: February 07, 2023

Event: Webinar

Time: 9:00-10:00 a.m. DK/4:00-5:00 p.m. CN

renewable-energy

Amongst a sea of brands, and endless content, one of the biggest challenges brands face today is effectively connecting with their target audience, both online and offline. Often, marketing initiatives can feel like marketing into the void, without direct and tangible results. With an ever-changing communicational landscape, and ever-increasing number of touchpoints, what we aim to explore is how to avoid exactly that. In this webinar we will try and provide some insights around how to effectively reach your target audience, in a cost-efficient way through "KOL Grass Planting" and "Circling Effect".

Siyu is the Head of Marketing, Georg Jensen China. Before joining in Georg Jensen, Siyu has more than 9 years of experience in PR and EPR in the fashion industry. Siyu has extensive experience in both luxury branding as well as fast fashion brands, as both in-house, as well as with a number of top tier agencies.

Upping Your Game Within Cross-cultural Communication!

Date: March 07, 2023

Event: Webinar

Time: 9:00-10:00 a.m. DK/4:00-5:00 p.m. CN

renewable-energy

Have your ever felt puzzled about by the behavior of a global colleague and thought something along the lines of: Why didn’t they say no if they meant no? Why didn’t they say that they couldn’t meet the agreed deadline? Why didn’t they just say it like it is???

The explanation is most likely that they actually did say this! They just said it in a different way than what you’re used to.

If you want to avoid ending up in these kinds of situations in the future, the first step is to become aware of how you and your global colleagues typically prefer to communicate.

During the short webinar I’ll introduce you to the term ‘Low-high context communication’ and by using many real-life-examples and cases we will take our departure point in the difference btw DK and CN communication and you will walk away with insight and a few practical things to do and not to do to maximize your output in your cross-cultural communication.

Future-Proof Upskilling and Reskilling of Tomorrows Workers in China

Date: September 27, 2022

Time: 9.00-10.00 a.m. (DK) / 3.00-4.00 p.m. (CN)

Event: Webinar


By Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of strategic initiatives, Area9 Lyceum

With the availability of AI-powered Adaptive Learning, we can now rethink how we want to develop our organization. For the first time, we can use technology to upskill an entire group of people and have everyone receive the personal attention they need. The need for this technology has been further accelerated by the effects of COVID-19, especially in relation to China, where travel restrictions and closed borders have caused barriers relating to knowledge transfer across borders.

In this webinar, Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of Strategic Initiatives at Area9 Lyceum will introduce the concept of adaptive learning for workforces and explore how this technology for example can be used to ensure that workers build adequate product knowledge. Furthermore, Khurram will go through case examples of companies where the technology is applied, such as Audi and Lockheed Martin. Starting last year, companies with teams in China can use Area9’s technology thanks to local cloud hosting and support.

Join the webinar to explore how the technology will help ensure your learning organization is ready for the next decades.
