I would like to highlight the flexibility of the consultant as a very positive aspect of the 2-day session. In fact the consultant was taking my personal interests and requirements into consideration and adjusted the program accordingly. Since I had the benefit of a 1-week business meeting in Shanghai, prior to this course, the consultant and myself were able to reflect on this 1 week experience and had a very detailed "dive" into the cultural aspects which became apparent during my business trip. Very much appreciate the ability to allow for this reflection of this experience.
