REDWOOD CITY, Calif. Sept. 10, 2012 – The Helen Wang Group has launched a new program, “The Secret of Succeeding in China,” to help U.S. companies crack the China market. This one-day program, held at Hotel Sofitel, Redwood City, California on November 9th, 2012, combines strategic case studies with hands-on workshops to tackle one of the hardest questions facing U.S. companies: how to succeed in the world’s most populous country.

China’s growing middle class has opened opportunities for companies not just to manufacture there but also to sell into its vast market. “The Secret of Succeeding in China” takes a deep look at why some companies succeeded in China while others failed, and how companies can re-brand and re-position their products and services for the Chinese market. The program also offers a trademarked Success Formula and workbook to guide attendees developing plans to succeed in China.

“This is a very unique program,” said Steve Mushero, founder and CEO of ChinaNetCloud, an Internet server management and cloud computing company based in Shanghai, China. “While there are many conferences and seminars about China, there is no such program that gives people a concrete take-away that they can apply to their businesses.”

Chinese-American Author Reveals How China Will Change America

San Francisco, CA— The Chinese president Hu Jintao’s state visit to the U. S. is a sign of strengthening ties between the two countries.  The relationship between the U.S. and China is one of the most important relations in the 21st century and is critical for the world’s stability and prosperity.  Although there are notable differences between the two countries, the leaders of both recognize that the U.S. and China have a lot to gain by working together.  One of the concrete results of the visit is the $45 billion agreement allowing U.S. exports into China, which will create 235,000 jobs in America.

Author Helen Wang says, “In the long run, there will still be issues in currency, human rights, and intellectual property, etc., and there will be ups and downs, but I don’t think the U.S.-China relations will turn into a cold-war kind of confrontation.  It will be a work-in-progress relationship.”

Invite her to answer:

  • Is China America’s worst enemy or best friend?
  • Will China’s growing middle class be a saving grace for America’s economic woes?
  • What are the secrets for U. S. companies to succeed in China?
  • Is it a myth that China is a global manufacturing power?
  • Why should every American student start learning Chinese?

CREDENTIALS: Helen Wang is an author, business consultant, and Forbes columnist.  As an expert on Chinese culture and business, she can offer insight on commonly accepted misconceptions about China.  Her book, The Chinese Dream: The Rise of the World’s Largest Middle Class and What It Means to You, examines the rising middle class in China and how it affects America’s economy (Available on Amazon and other channels).  She has been featured by Asia Times, the nationally syndicated Michael Ray Radio Talk Show, WVTL 1570 AM in New York, KBZZ Fox News 1270 AM in Nevada, KOA 850 AM news radio in Colorado, and many others.

AVAILABILITY: San Francisco, nationwide by arrangement, and via telephone

Press Release Headline:
Chinese-American author breaks ground on China’s middle class growth explosion

‘The Chinese Dream: The Rise of the World’s Largest Middle Class and What It Means to You’ (ISBN 1452898049) by Helen H. Wang brings a fresh paradigm on how we view U.S.-China relations.

PALO ALTO, Calif. / In her new book, ‘The Chinese Dream: The Rise of the World’s Largest Middle Class and What It Means to You’ (ISBN 1452898049), Helen Wang examines the impact of a growing Chinese middle class on the United States and the world. As a Chinese native and American citizen, Wang challenges readers to recognize that some of our fears about China are misplaced.

Over the next 15 years, Wang estimates Chinas middle class to reach a population of 800 million, more than double todays number. While some people in the West may fear the fast growth within China poses a global threat, Wang presents readers with information and research in an effort to show how this rising middle class will provide enormous opportunities for Western companies and become a balancing force that could help with Americas economic struggles. The Chinese Dream offers a fascinating look at one of the most dynamic forces shaping our world today, says Gady Epstein, Beijing bureau chief, ‘Forbes.’ A truly valuable read for anyone who wants to do business in China.

The author also argues that the United States and China complement each other in culture, technology, and manufacturing, which, when adopting a spirit of mutual learning and collaboration, could help solve environmental problems facing both countries and achieve a major leap in clean energy that neither could make alone.

I believe that the worlds stability and prosperity will depend on how well China and the West understand each other, trust each other and learn from each other, Wang said.

Wang hopes readers will realize both the unexpected similarities and the complementary differences between the Chinese and Western middle classes. Wang aims to deliver readers to the world of the Chinese entrepreneurial middle class through in-depth interviews, personal stories, and an exclusive perspective into how a growing global mindset may pave the way to a saner and safer world.

Whether China will become a more liberal and democratic society, whether it will retain the creative talents of people who in past generations have chosen to emigratethese and other questions are answered in Helen Wangs fascinating book, says James Fallows, a national correspondent for ‘The Atlantic Magazine.’

‘The Chinese Dream’ is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.

About the Author: Helen Wang is a ‘Forbes’ contributor and consultant on Chinas middle class. Originally from China, Wang has lived in the United States for more than 20 years. After finishing her masters degree at Stanford University, she worked in Silicon Valley, holding a variety of jobs, from consultant to Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneur at Internet start-ups.
