Having obstacles with your Asian Business Partners, Clients or Employees right now?

ONE OF THE MOST challenging misunderstandings I hear about when consulting with non-Asian clients is about "SILENCE".

1. The silence that follows on emails with potential Asian clients;

2.  The silence during or following a business presentation in Asia;

3. The silence when asking a direct question accompanied by the faintest shake of the head or a muttered ‘yes’;

4. The silence punctuated by an indrawn breath like a long hissing sound implying ‘this is going to be very difficult’.

Many of these orchestrated silences in China, Sinagpore, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea and a host of ASEAN countries are the result of an over-direct or impatient desire to get an answer, a result or a deal as quickly as possible on the part of self-consciously ‘globalized’ foreigners.

How 5 Human Errors Can Impact Data Security?

Tighter data protection regulations have forced businesses to put data security at the top of their priority list.  However, most companies still lack a strong cybersecurity culture among their employees. 

Are you aware that only 18% of organisations execute regular cyber security training for their employees, contractors, business partners and relevant third-party service providers.

Lack of cyber security awareness training increases the risk of human errors that lead to data breaches.

Are your cyber risks under control for year 2023 ?

Effective IT systems are crucial for any business.

Those charged with governance (Boards and executive management) aim to achieve secure, reliable and robust systems that support business strategies and deliver value for money.

The challenge is to harness the power of your IT while managing the risks.


With most businesses online and over millions of cyber-crime events each year, now is the time let us help you with your cyber readiness. 91% of attacks start with an email, and the average cost to a business per attack is over USD$200,000. Owners, Boards and management teams need confidence that their IT systems are secure and able to withstand external or internal threats.
