Dear DUSA Members,

We are delighted to invite you to attend DUSA Captain's Dinner on Feb. 28th , 2024 at Niccolo Suzhou.

This time, DUSA Captain's Dinner will be an event exclusively for the top level, senior managers and company representatives such as GMs, CEOs, Chairmen, and Presidents of DUSA member companies.


At this event, we will invite Mr. Gabor Holchintercultural leadership consultant, coach, author and speaker to give us the speech on "How to manage the Headquarters' expectation".

How to manage the Headquarters' expectation

China has long been a source of opportunity, growth and new ideas for multinational firms. But it has never been an easy place to integrate into global strategies and practices. In recent years, the balance between opportunity and challenge has shifted significantly, and strategic responses by headquarters often came with a generous amount of experimentation. Based on his recent book 'Dragon Suit: The golden age of expatriate executives in China', and his practice since the book's 2023 publication, intercultural leadership coach, speaker and consultant Gabor Holch's speech evaluates management localization, "decoupling", "derisking", "China for China" and other popular strategies from the perspective of multinational headquarters running their China branches. He will share practical tips for avoiding typical mistakes, harnessing opportunities and integrating them into global practices in a dramatically changing but still high-potential environment in China.
