Location: The Lin Hotel, Taichung, Taiwan
It is my first time to attend Taipei Business Association In Singapore's Taiwan Annual Meeting, it is more about learning what is happening in this event, everything is so fresh for me. If you are under 40, you can join the junior chapter and learn how to run a business association, ex. voting, arrange the event or making the speech. The most interesting part is I got a first chance to see Taiwan president and governor's speech closely.
There are 2 types of people in this event:
(1) Starting a business by themselves
(2) The 2nd generation of a family business
Sometimes your background and mindset already determined how or who you are going to talk, and how the people evaluate you in the first talk. Sometimes talking to the people for 2nd type is a little bit difficult, because they didn't try hard as the 1st type, so sometimes they don't understand why you can't get what they have.
There are lots of chance to social networking with new people, members in business association and even in the junior chapter are more traditional and protective, you shall try to talk about the less personal topic in the first meeting. And you could try to listen more about what other people's doing, rather talking about what you are doing.
If you have any question, please feel free to leave your comment, or discuss with me.
