The problem with foreign media
You lead a successful company on the Chinese mainland - now you are expanding abroad. But with the opportunity comes risk: while you are familiar with Chinese media, the media in other countries is very different. Journalists are aggressive and ask difficult questions.

They challenge your answers. And after the interview they don't allow you to review their article before it is published.

Trust us to show you the way, to ensure you can be confident in dealing with foreign media.
