Pretty excited! Confirmed the venue, and going to make it happen – Been meaning to get up to Shanghai for years now, its been over 2 years already! As I recently blogged – I have a jam packed 2 week trip in Shanghai – and I’m happy to say that I had an amazing talk with Founder / president of Xin Dan Wei Shanghai coworking space and she does have space available on Saturday afternoon, June 23rd for me to host a 3 hour English social media training course.
She thinks it will be a great success, and will be providing tea and snacks as well. I needed help with on the ground check in and other items, and she can help with all those details as well! I get to focus on what I enjoy, marketing the event, and hosting the event.
Many people in Shanghai had sent me messages on Weibo asking me to host this event in Shanghai – so, based on your feedback, I’m going out on a limb here and going to test it out! A little nervous its only a week and a half away, but think we can make it happen. Liu Yan and her Xin Dan Wei team have been an awesome support already these past few days.
Here’s the info:

Please let me know your feedback. I have a feeling many more people in Shanghai will enjoy this- I will do the event in English but having the slides printed in Chinese as well as English
Again, as China continues to develop its need for marketing knowledge, I think training seminars will be a hot business.
After the Training seminar, result
We had 4 people come, as well as Liu Yan, which worked out perfectly. We had a nice room in Xin Dan Wei on the top floor, projector, white board, printed slides out for everyone. It was a good mix of foreigners and Chinese attendees, and we spent time on each person’s case study.
I would say it was a success, and I now have more confidence to do more social media seminars in Shanghai in the future. I think I will try to make regular trips from Shenzhen.
Never give up! Add oil!
