As a business consulting executive, I advise and help European, American and other international companies with their business development and expansion in China, as well as other East Asian markets (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, etc.).
If you are new to doing business in China and East Asia, you absolutely need an experienced intercultural manager and consultant like me — to help you cross not only the language barrier (I speak fluent Mandarin Chinese), but also the cultural and legal ones. Trust me, it is a world apart.
I have been working in Asia since 2001 and have spent 15 years in China alone, managing project budgets of up to €15 million and building long-term business relationships for my clients — mostly from the food & drink industry, various trade and industry associations, as well as other areas.
In addition to having lived and worked in China, I also hold a university degree with exams from Modern Chinese Studies, Sinology, Political Science, Law and Economics from Rhenish Friedrich Wilhelm University of Bonn, as well as PhD and Master’s Degree in Chinese Environmental Protection Law from the University of Cologne. So I am well aware of the complex environmental, political, and economical issues related to European trade relations with China.
If you are looking for an highly experienced trade expert who speaks a number of international languages, I would be delighted to discuss your business case. My approach is always pragmatic, innovative, proactive, and I am also willing to travel and lead difficult business negotiations — two skills that are totally indispensable when dealing with Asian as well as European partners.

I have known Jan for a number of years as a friend as well as an outstanding professional with extensive knowledge of South East Asia and especially China, where he lived and worked for many years. He was one of the peer-reviewers of my best-selling book, The Freelance Way, and he helped me greatly to tweak some cultural details, making the book more relevant for readers in Asia. Jan knows his trade very well, and I can only recommend him as a reliable expert and business partner.
