Joy, I would like to thank you for the great job that you did for us with the training at JACS. To be honest, I thought I was going to be quite bored, even though I really had no idea what to expect. I found you to be very knowledgeable on the subject matter and your style very entertaining and interactive. The topics we learned from you is hugely helpful to us all.  Thank you!

Joy, your workshop energized our company on the topic of working with our Chinese counterpart. There is all around great feedback from leaders and employees about the workshop. Your interactive style, thoughtful content and measured pace made for a very beneficial day.

Joy did an excellent job coaching me for a meeting with a partner of ours based in China. This was to be the first of many negotiations and I knew that the cultural barriers between US and Chinese cultures could be a signifcant impediment to successful outcomes. Joy thoroughly prepared me for those negotiations and took a broader view of the meeting. She met with me several times to really understand the larger goal beyond the meeting itself. She also thoroughly educated me on Chinese culture in general in addition to specific business applications. With that background and context I more readily understand the way my Chinese partner works and why certain behaviors exist so that I can be more successful in my negotiations.  

In addition to being an expert, Joy is very caring and very thoughtful. She's a trusted partner to me and followed up with me to make sure that I had what I needed on an ongoing basis.She was also always available for follow-up informal counseling.

Joy presented a workshop on doing business with Asia for our Women in Technology group. She is a very knowledgeable consultant and an engaging and insightful speaker. We could've spent the entire day learning from Joy; she left the group wanting more. She is on the top of my list for her knowledge of the Asian culture and how U.S. companies must approach their strategy when engaging Asian business partners.

We were so happy to have Joy host a workshop at the 2012 Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit. Her workshop was extremely engaging and the participants were participating throughout the day. She was a delight to work with and I would highly recommend her to any group or organization interested in learning more about Chinese culture for business motivations or otherwise.
