China Café Podcast: Aldo Spaanjaars over zijn nieuwe boek “Dragon Tactics”

Entrepreneurs are facing a new era of tremendous unpredictability and uncertainty.

Covid-19. Ukraine. Energy prices. Climate challenges. Rapid digitization and robotization. And all that in a fully new geopolitical landscape.

Why are Chinese entrepreneurs coping so well? The simplest answer is … they never had it easy! They have always had extremely uncertain and unpredictable times while building their businesses. It’s only now that entrepreneurs in the west have to cope with similarly uncertain conditions.

I wrote the book “Dragon tactics” with @Sandrine Zerbib to spread my inside knowledge of how the Chinese do business amidst baffling uncertainty and unpredictability.

My sincere thanks to @Lilian Kranenburg and the @Leiden Asia Centre for their recent invitation to their “China Café” to come speak about this book and the secrets of Chinese entrepreneurship. The Leiden Asia Centre is the premier platform in The Netherlands to generate academic knowledge on modern East Asia that can find societal applications in the Netherlands.
