Nahu Girma, president of CrossCultural Connections, and Qin Fan, an Atlanta-based executive recruiter, are teaming up once again to conduct their “Negotiating Your Way in China” workshop at the World Trade Center downtown.

The workshop is to be held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26, and is to cover a variety of topics applicable to doing business in China.

The in-depth program includes an historical and cultural overview to provide a better understanding of working with the Chinese.  It also is to review the role of culture in business and social relationships, explore how differences affect communications and business transactions and outline strategies for identifying and managing the symptoms of cultural stress.

Mrs. Girma, who is originally from Ethiopia, and Ms. Fan, who is originally from China, teamed up in October of last year for their first joint program.

Mrs. Girma’s company provides cross-cultural programs for doing business in South America and elsewhere in the world on a regular basis at the Word Trade Center here.

Ms. Fan recently launched Ardemis Inc., a recruiting firm working primarily with engineering and manufacturing operations and information technology firms sending people to China.  A native of Shanghai, she helped Duke University establish the TIP (Talent Identification Program) that takes students to China.

The cost to attend the program is $225. For more information, call Joanne Martin at (404) 880-1556 or send a fax to (404) 880-1555.
