People and cultures! These are the key life motives of my stories, talks and interviews with people I meet every day. Since mid-November in Shanghai (China), the people and culture of the region are my major concepts of exploration. This starts from the everyday routines of everybody and ends up with the business reflections upon the leadership style people apply, the way they work and cooperate with peers, bosses and foreigner. I am trying to understand the world which is so different from our European standards and values.
Please, find my articles, stories and thoughts on things, concepts and phenomenon that either got my interest or I found like something I need to share with you. In this section you will find information on e.g. the concept of Ayi in China or car drivers. Surprised? Ayi is translated into the English word “maid” but might have so many variations in the way it is applied in China. A car driver is one of the most popular but also most important jobs for expats in the country where none except for the Chinese can drive a car.
I will also present some of the places I have already visited via stories, short films coproduced with my daughter and photos. Enjoy!
