China CEO Program
Fabulous program. I enjoyed a wonderful journey through 4 cities in 6 days, learning, networking and visiting some of China’s best known companies. CKGSB’s network in China is broad and deep, and I met so many interesting and knowledgeable business leaders from all sectors. I highly recommend the program to western CEOs who need to deepen their knowledge and connections in China.
