Our world is facing tremendous challenges in multiple dimensions: economic, social, and environmental. I genuinely believe close collaboration and connection between people from different cultures, backgrounds, and businesses can create a wide range of sustainable impacts on peace and prosperity, for people and for our planet. It’s my mission to help and support people from different cultures to connect with each other, learn from each other, inspire each other, and add value to each other. In Our Cultures & Our World Podcast, I will invite people from China and other countries to share stories about their intercultural journeys, their challenges along the way, and their effort to create understanding and connections. I hope their stories will give all of us insights, ideas, and inspiration to create a more connected world together. Music Waldemar Moes: "Chinese Walz"

    #4 Hoe bouw je het Guanxi netwerk op in China? Jasper Delisse van We R Asia

    #4 Hoe bouw je het Guanxi netwerk op in China? Jasper Delisse van We R Asia

    Achttien jaar geleden vroeg oom Ben die zijn producten liet produceren in China aan Jasper Delisse of hij voor hem naar China wilde, “China, wat kan ik daar gaan doen?” vroeg Jasper. Hij was 22 jaar en net klaar met zijn studie. Maar omdat hij met een goede vriend samen mocht reizen naar China was hij toch gegaan. Door deze reis en door daarna 1,5 jaar lang in China gewoond en gewerkt te hebben was de passie en liefde voor China ontstaan.

    Nu 18 jaar later, runt hij al 15 jaar lang een mooi bedrijf We R Asia met kantoren in Nederland, China, Vietnam en India. We R Asia helpt bedrijven in Europa met het uitbesteden van maatwerk productie in Asia.

    In dit interview deelt Jasper met ons hoe hij  als ondernemer zaken doet en Guanxi netwerk opbouwt in China, hoe de duurzame ontwikkelingen in de outsourcing sector gaan op dit moment en hoe We R Asia daarin een actieve rol speelt.

    #3 How the disability of my son has reshaped me? Bei Wang from StraightFire Studios

    #3 How the disability of my son has reshaped me? Bei Wang from StraightFire Studios

    This week I had the chance to talk to my good friend Bei Wang in Our Cultures & Our World Podcast. Bei is the Co-founder and CMO of StraightFire Studios, Co-founder of FIVE DEGREES, Lecturer of Creative Business, and Course creator Digital China. 
    I am so grateful that Bei shared her personal story about the disability of her son Elias and how this experience changed her and helped her to see the world through a different lens. It is such a beautiful story and it touched me deeply. 
    Our Chinese upbringing is very much focused on having ambition and achieving a lot of success. But what’s the definition of success? Elias brought Bei to reflect on her old beliefs and redefine her mission, her personal role in this world, and what she wants to contribute to this world as an Educator, Cultural Broker, Brand Interpreter, Metaverse Explorer and Creator of NFT 2.0 Ecosystem
    Bei also shared her view about the importance of humanistic thinking and ethical thinking for digitalization, for our economic and technological development. 
    For entrepreneurs who are doing or want to do business with China, Bei also shared valuable tips and historical, and cultural contexts to help you navigate your business in China. 
    I hope this conversation between two Chinese friends will inspire you to reflect on the definition of success, achievement, contribution, and happiness, and how we can slow down to improve the well-being of our planet, our own well-being, and especially the well-being of young people!
