The Bay Area Council is pleased to partner with the Center for Business Studies and Innovation in Asia-Pacific (CBSI) at San Francisco State University in presenting what promises to be an informative and highly engaging conversation with Ker Gibbs, CBSI Executive-in-Residence and past president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, moderated by Dr. Sean Randolph, Senior Director of the Bay Area Council Economic Institute.

Please join us on Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 5-7 p.m.

Drawing from his acclaimed new book, Selling to China, Ker will discuss opportunities and challenges facing foreign businesses in China. He’ll share fascinating insights and stories, such as why social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter are kept out of China while others thrive, and how one tweet about pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong led to hundreds of million dollars of lost revenue and nearly shuttered the NBA in China.
