Welcome to Dr Kirk’s Cross-Cultural Consultancy
Doing business with the Chinese is increasingly common. There is a need for effective oral and written communication between the Middle Kingdom and the United Kingdom. Winning a deal and maintaining good ‘Guanxi’/ relations requires understanding.
Understanding what your client or customer is saying is vital. Increasingly British institutions and companies are working with people whose first language is Mandarin Chinese, the official language of Mainland China, Taiwan and Singapore. A good Mandarin interpreter is often crucial in helping you to overcome the language and cultural barriers. The quality of interpreting matters greatly for any individuals and companies when you are holding business meetings with Chinese-speaking suppliers or visitors. When you are able to communicate clearly and effectively, it will help you in securing an important contract or building long-lasting relationships.
Dr Kirk’s Cross-Cultural Consultancy provides a wide range of consultancy on British companies doing business in China and Chinese companies working with UK businesses. Western companies and multinational enterprises.
Dr Kirk accompanied a number of UK companies/business people to visit their clients, factories and attended Exhibitions and other missions in China.
