US visitors

A group of six Executive MBA students came to the office today to learn about business in China. Their small group was doing research on keeping mid-level management employees in China. They were part of a larger group of about 80 students, who all were getting their EMBAs at a school in Chicago.

A woman named Samantha is from Sioux Falls, and knows a woman who works in Personnel at the Dak office there, which is how she found out about Dak Shanghai. Another guy in their group, Jeff, had previously lived in Suzhou for two years. It was great talking to them, but we hardly had any time.

Later I met them at their hotel. The whole group had gone to the fabric market and bought many clothes. Unfortunately, about half of them didn’t fit at all. The guys who made the clothes still wanted them to pay for everything and take it, but of course they didn’t want to. This caused quite the common and they were pretty persistent.

I’d been telling Rob and Chris about all of the places Jon and I have traveled to, and they asked just how old I was. I guess I don’t look old enough to have been to 27 different countries. :-) I told them was my birthday and they bought me a glass of champagne to celebrate.
