Disseminating deep ideas for China success

Ideas are the currency of our age. And in an age when China’s global significance is growing, CKGSB Americas’ Knowledge Series is the go-to source for executives from the US and the Americas for a stream of provocative notions that can beneficially affect the way they think about building and expanding a China business.

Held in our state-of-the-art New York learning center in the heart of one of the world’s great financial hubs, our Knowledge Series lectures and discussions are an opportunity to learn from the world’s brightest minds as they focus on the topics and trends that are most pertinent to your specific China business goals.

Among other themes, Knowledge Series events have examined China’s financial turbulence and what it means for investors; business to business buying: how it has changed, and how we need to change with it; solar power’s future in the U.S. and China; new consumption trends in China and their implication for companies in China’s global supplier network; doing business with a changing China; and where China is and where it is headed. 

Regardless of your China interest, Knowledge Series events are your gateway to acquiring critical insight on macro trends, emerging opportunities, collaboration and competition with Chinese companies, cross-cultural competencies and how to best position China within your own organization.

In an era when ideas matter, the CKGSB Americas Knowledge Series is the authoritative generator of China ideas.
