Speaking

It’s a long term project, not one proposal can finish it. Every week, our team should update our process and report to our boss. This week, we will report the process on Thursday in Beijing. If we have important meeting, all of key members should go to Beijing. If you want to have a business trip in your position, I suggest you to some positions that need to report to the whole company. Our sales teams based on three different cities. For me, I should go to different cities with different departments to communicate things or business. If you want to choose the marketing position, you should ask your boss: is it whole marketing or regional marketing? If the marketing is only responsible regional marketing, you didn’t have enough time to have a business trip.

I know a lot of friends to do strategy things, most of them lose hair. I don’t want to be a lose hair people. It’s horrible. It’s hard thing, you will think about more than other people. You will think about the future, more than step.

Revised

It’s a long term project, I can’t finish it with just one proposal can finish it. Every week, our team should update our progress and report to our boss. This week, we will report the progress on Thursday in Beijing. If we have important meeting, all of the key members/ management level should go to Beijing. If you want to have a business trip in your position, I suggest you to work in a position which needs to report to the whole company. Our sales team is based in three different cities. For me, I need to go to different cities with different departments to go over the project plans. If you want to work in the marketing department, you should ask your boss: is it national marketing or regional marketing? If the marketing position is only responsible for the regional marketing, you won’t have enough time to go on a business trip.

I know a lot of friends who work as a strategist, most of them are losing hair. I don’t want to be one of them. It’s horrible. It’s hard thing, you will think about more than other people. You will need to think one step ahead.

Northerners, they look down on people. When they do something, they are very slow, they never push it. When we work with southerners, most of them just focus on the project. We work out an result together, so I think working with Southerners is smoother than Northerners. In the Shanghai office, the staffs are more direct when they need to express their opinions.
