On 2 November 2020, the North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence (North Asia CAPE) partnered with the New Zealand China Trade Association (NZCTA) to hold the first in a series of informal breakfast seminars in support of New Zealand SMEs and companies. Our first session featured an experienced New Zealand business executive, Brett Piper, who shared war stories on entering, meeting challenges, and succeeding in the Chinese market.
Brett is Head of Business Affairs at television documentary maker NHNZ, where he leads significant commercial interactions with China. He was previously Legal Counsel and Business Affairs Director at Les Mills International for 14 years, where he oversaw LMI’s establishment of an in-market China presence. Brett has had experience dealing with a range of commercial, intellectual property, and strategic issues in China.
North Asia CAPE and NZCTA intend to hold further seminars as part of this series in the new year. Please sign up to our newsletter here, to be kept informed of this and other upcoming events.
