I also finally wanted to write something on our blog and as I had a presentation yesterday about ‘HR recruiting & training challenges of SMEs in China – Cultural expectations and how to use them for recruiting and training’ and as Simon and Florian took some pictures, I thought this is a good opportunity.
The presentation took place in intercontinental hotel and there were 52 (mainly business) people listening. They mainly came from China, Germany, Australia, the US and it was a good presentation. If anyone of you want to know more about the content of my presentation, it will be uploaded on http://www.qingdaodirect.com/ soon. If you come to Qingdao yourself you will be able to join one of the wine tastings which follow every presentation of the Qingdao International Business Club which take place every week and all the nice food which you can see on the pictures (especially the little fruit cakes!)…
Hope to see you around and will post some more soon,
Often we go out on Friday nights to have a beer and play a game of pool or two. Anyone can rent by hour to play and ssLPG has great beer and often good music. You can find lots of foreigners there as well as native Chinese people; eating, drinking, and sharing a laugh or two.
We all took buses from our host families and then met to ride the ferry out to Huangdao island not knowing that later the wind would pick up and we wouldn’t be able to get back. Funny story… We went to the beach and it was warm all day… and then the night hit and they shut down the ferry boat and we all had to ride a big bus home which they made us switch over to a different one and we waited one hour before we could leave because they wanted to fill the bus… It cost us 30 Yuan each… Great time all around anyways because we have such a fun group of people.
From left to right- Dennis, Martin, Simon, Viet-Ha, Mia, Andrea, Steve, Kristen, Nicole, Danou, and Jacob-(he is a teacher who has just graduated from college in the U.S.). We had a great journey that day. We had tons of laughs and took some amazing pictures and the hike really wasn’t that long. Fu Shan is one of the coolest places to hike. I found it to be the single most spectacular view that I have seen in China (even better than my experience in Beijing at the Great Wall).

In order to solve global energy shortages and increasing environmental pollution, countries around the world have invested large amounts of manpower and resources to actively develop new energy sources. In recent years, the alternative energy industry has been expanding while the technology has become more advanced. This industry is expected to become a new source of economic growth.
Shandong Province as a Chinese coastal economy is facing the dual pressure of accelerated development and the need of improving energy savings. These factors will lead to the imminent development and application of new energy. After several years of promotion, Shandong Province has developed and utilized alternative energies such as wind, biomass, geothermal, and ocean energy. To strengthen international cooperation and to promote industrial development, Shandong Provincial People’s Government and the Chinese People’s Institute of Foreign Affairs along with eight ministries and commissions will hold the “2010 China (Qingdao) International Forum on New Energy & Sino-German Cooperation Qingdao Summit.”

It is located near the Yellow Sea and by the Fushan Bay and it is a huge flame like sculpture that is absolutely something that your eyes will not miss… Especially from our office windows. We have an amazing office space now that has recently been renovated and we are in the oldest skyscraper in all of Qingdao and I believe in the Shandong Province.
