John Chan (University of Toronto Trinity College alumnus, 1986), an authority on best business practices in China, will share insights with students interested in working or setting up businesses in China. With 16 years of corporate experience in Mainland China and the region, he will share his expertise and open the floor to questions from students who want to learn more about Chinese business practices.

Chan’s background is a contrast of East/West and rural/urban, which has given him a unique perspective when explaining China. His parents were born in China, but he was born and raised in Saint John, New Brunswick. Currently based in Shanghai, Chan has lived and worked full time in Mainland China since 1993. He is the Vice Chairman of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai and the Yangzi River Delta Region, and special advisor to the United Nations. Chan owns and operates Streetsmart International Inc., a boutique management consulting firm which designs & executes high level strategies and business missions for executives coming to China. In 2003 his book “China Streetsmart: What You Must Know to be Effective and Profitable in China” was published and became the #1 business book on Amazon.
