AndersWalls stipendium till Svenska Handelskammaren i Shanghai 2020

 

ANDERS WALLS STIFTELSE delar sedan 2008 ut ett årligt stipendium till en ung, kreativ affärsbegåvning för tolv månaders tjänstgöring vid Svenska Handelskammaren i Kina med placering på kontoret i Shanghai. Stipendiesumman uppgår till 200.000 kronor och tillträde sker i april 2020.

Utvecklingen i Kina sker i rekordfart och konkurrensen för svenska bolag på plats blir allt tuffare. Handelskammaren i Kina verkar för att främja svenska företags intressen i Kina och har idag 260 medlemsföretag, varav cirka 160 i Shanghai. Varje månad arrangerar Handelskammaren seminarier, workshops och utbildningar inom aktuella ämnen men erbjuder främst en stark plattform för nätverksbyggande. Som Anders Wall-stipendiat kommer du under ett år att delta i arbetet vid Svenska Handelskammaren i Shanghai och ges möjlighet att knyta kontakter med den svensk-kinesiska affärsvärlden.

Dina arbetsuppgifter kommer att vara varierande. Du kommer bl.a. att delta i planering och genomförande av kammarens månatliga events samt driva ett eller flera projekt inom ramen för verksamhetens service till medlemsföretagen i Kina. Dessutom blir du ordförande för kammarens Young Professional-nätverk och projektleder den årliga karriärs- mässan.

Tjänsten kräver goda kunskaper i engelska och gärna kinesiska (inget krav), och att du snabbt kan växla mellan analytisk förmåga och att kunna kavla upp ärmarna när situationen kräver det. En stor del av marknadsföringen av kammarens event sker via sociala medier, så du ska ha ett intresse för det digitala. För att trivas i rollen bör du som person vara utåtriktad och trivas i miljöer där nätverkande står i fokus. Inte minst ska du ha ett intresse för den kinesiska kulturen.

ANSÖKAN

Ansökan ska bestå av:

1) CV

2) Personligt brev på max 1 A4 där du berättar varför just du skulle passa i rollen på Svenska Handelskammaren i Kina samt vad som motiverar dig att söka tjänsten

Swedcham China: Advanced Sales Management course

eer

 

As requested by our member companies this autumn we will offer a range of workshops targeting sales management professionals and business owners who must assume a sales management role.
Every sales organization needs a leader who can inspire them, support the organization's vision, and set the direction for the future, therefore our training will enable sales managers to establish a management framework built on productive behavior, cooperation, collaboration, and accountability.

Last Wednesday, we had a great pleasure to invite Feng Lu, Co-Founder of Martinsen International, as a trainer of our whole-day training on Advanced Sales Management at the beautiful Jinshang Li(金尚丽) office. There were a lot of interesting and inspiring discussions among 27 participants from near and far.

This in-depth program covers four critical sales management abilities:
- The role of the sales manager and core values of successful sales (optimistic and self-motivated)
- Sales target setting and the logical relations among strategic-marketing-sales
- How to identify user needs and increase sales efficiency
- Construction, Incentive, and Development of Sales Team

The training program was diverse and fun and it ended up with a big success. All the participants had increased the abilities of:
- Effectively use spoken and body language in order to increase influence and confidence
- Manage own customers and provide management decisions for the organization
- Forecasting and resource allocation
- Task follow-up and coaching
