It’s been another busy month across Asia-Pacific for ClarkMorgan, with training in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Singapore. In October we trained automotive, home decor, eyewear, snack food, and IT giants. Here’s a quick look at some of our programs in October:
Daimler – Cross Culture and Business Writing

Daimler is a German automobile manufacturer and has made massive inroads into the Chinese car market, teaming with BYD to develop a new electric car model, Denza. ClarkMorgan has been working with Daimler since 2009, providing management and leadership development for Daimler managers in China, Vietnam, and Singapore. This month veteran trainers, Patrick McDonald and Rupert Munton, provided Cross Culture and Business Writing training, respectively.


Ikea – Influential Communication and Presentation Skills

 Ikea is the world’s largest furniture company, with 2014 revenues as of August of €29bn. China is home of eight of Ikea’s 10 largest stores, and has become Ikea’s fastest-growing market, as the mass migration into cities helps create a middle class with money to spend. ClarkMorgan has been supporting Ikea’s growth since 2011, through the development of management in the China headquarters – Shanghai. In October, Jamie Dixon run a two day Communication and Presentation Skills program for 12 middle managers.


Luxottica – Creating a Feedback Culture

In June 2014 the company launched a global feedback culture program and invited ClarkMorgan to help develop and deliver that program across Greater China and Singapore. In October, ClarkMorgan’s co-founder, Morry Morgan, delivered a session for Luxottica’s APAC directors in Singapore.

Mondelez International is an American multinational confectionary, food and beverage conglomerate, employing around 107,000 people. Formerly known as Kraft Foods until 2012, Mondelez has a current market capitalisation of 59.23 billion US dollars. In 2014, Mondelez’s China HQ asked ClarkMorgan to develop a mini-MBA program that would incorporate specific case studies, processes, and senior Mondelez directors into the curriculum. Jeff Lunz and Yan Sai first consulted the HR department to create the scope of the project and then developed trainer and trainee workshop content. Senior directors were also coached on how to deliver components of the program, and the program was rolled out in October this year.
