Treat Business in Asia Like a Team, Not a Family – Jim James

Published on 2013-09-09


BUILDING A TEAM IN CHINA is challenging, with inexperienced staff and high turnover. In Asia family businesses have traditionally succeeded, however, Jim James disagrees that this model is the best culture for a business. Instead Jim suggests a model based on a sports team is more suitable to the volatility of Asia.
Jim started his first business in Singapore in 1995, moving to China in 2006. He is currently the Managing irector for Morgan Cars Limited Hong Kong and is based in Beijing, China. He is the founder and Chairman of EASTWEST Public Relations and Chairman of Eggplant Digital.
