At Four Pillars Executives we constantly strive to learn from others. We understand that the knowledge each of us holds can be further utilized when shared with others. Due to having that mentality, our director Alex Tabar will be traveling to California and then to China this week.
For the first part of his journey, Alex is headed to San Francisco, California. While in the city, he will be spending time in different office learning alternative marketing techniques. He will also be observing additional methods of company, consumer, and product branding. However, this part of the trip will end as Alex and other directors fly to Hong Kong, China.
The time spent in Hong Kong will be a mix of business and sight-seeing. Traveling to other countries gives the unique opportunity to see different cultures and their implications for marketing and business. Just as our office is team-oriented, Chinese culture stresses the collective good and the group rather than individuals. This means that if you succeed, your team succeeds, and vice versa. In addition, the Chinese culture traditionally stresses a long term mental orientation. This means that successes today good, but are more important when looked at in terms of the long term future. To a certain degree our office also follows this idea. Each day we form short, middle, and long term so that our office members can remember to look at the big picture. However, we also strive to celebrate the successes that lead to achieving our long terms.
While in China, Alex will also be touring the city so he can bring back pictures from his sightseeing adventures. While in the country, he will be vising places such as Disneyland Hong Kong, Lantau Island and the Giant Buddha, as well as a tour of different food destinations. Just as our director will be learning about the cultural differences and marketing strategies between the United States and China, we at Four Pillars Executives encourage you to take any opportunity to travel abroad that come up. The learning experience will be unparalleled and you will leave with a better understanding of how the world works. Safe travels to both Alex and you.
