Transforming to a global-class young entrepreneur.

Rise from the “臺灣小池” to global-class entrepreneurship.

Various Taiwan companies work so hard (拼命!) to help leading global corporations make amazing profits. Their Taiwanese employees become exhausted, and lose life balance. The Taiwan companies make tiny profits, while their global partners dominate everyone and build amazing wealth.

Will your start-up fall in to this “New Taiwan Trap”? (Or, will your pre-start-up corporate career suck the life out of you?)

Are you ready to serve multiple customer segments across our multi-cultural world? What must you learn... to impress and collaborate with the best global partners – with equality and mutual respect?

Our brief 20 minute session will distill the most crucial lessons, tricks and principles for young Taiwanese to gradually reach equality with global-class performers. Gary Lewis has accumulated and honed these methods over 18 years in America and 10 years in Taiwan – advising and training thousands of high-achieving professionals from 300+ respected companies.

We will help you understand the underlying strategic, marketing and logic strengths of top Western high-growth, high-profit, balanced-life companies. The Western education system trains top achievers systematic logic, persuasion, mutual empowerment and creative innovation... beginning around age 10 years-old. We will suggest paths for you to develop these strengths for yourself.

Equally crucial, this session respects your strengths – Taiwan's unique competencies. We discuss how to leverage and portray your advantages to gain eager acceptance, to “level the playing field” and influence global-class partners to prize you and share rewards fairly. The prejudices and arrogance of Many American and European companies leads them to trivialize (小看)or ignore your crucial value. We discuss how to derail their tendency to exploit you.

You'll learn strategies, tactics, powerful ways to communicate, and how to avoid wasting time and  energy on low-value learning. For example, we show examples of how to reduce your English  learning burden... How to use simple grammar yet sound sophisticated; How to use cross-cultural communications skills to connect and impress even with easy English.

Gary will share “the overlooked keys” to cross-cultural entrepreneurial and business collaboration that he's used across America and in Europe, Latin America, Turkey, Africa, China, and of course: Taiwan. Dare to become Global-Class, working somewhat hard – but extremely smart.
