Doing Business in Asia;
In addition to the 'Innovation for Business Leaders' Book Series, Andy Wynn has also written about his many years of living and working in Asia, in his book 'The Biggest City You've Never Heard Of'. Many of the TTIP team have a strong connection with Asia, having lived and worked there for many years, strengthened further recently with the opening of our office in Singapore. Andy wrote the book to help demystify the challenge and reduce the anxiety that many Western businessman and their families experience on their first trips to China and the broader Asian region. Andy is often invited to speak at many industry and corporate events about 'Doing Business in China', and the book is a great source of reference to many businesses to support cultural awareness training for international travellers and soon to be expats.
