"Face is the core of Chinese culture. If you understand and master it, you can get whatever you want in China" Lu Xun

Some westerners have been told that it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to work with Chinese people due to a common misunderstanding about the concept of "Face". According to Professor Labao Wang, Director, Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture at Western Sydney University, we shouldn't be held back by this myth.

In this thoughtful and engaging session, we will learn more about how "Face" plays such an important part in business and social interactions, and how we can learn from the mistakes of others
