A native of China, Ms. Wang has spent the last twenty years consulting for and managing multinational business operations in China and the United States in several different industry sectors. Drawing on her broad international experience, she consults with clients and speaks at conferences on building and exploiting global presence, especially in China.
Ms. Wang was among the first batch of Chinese to study international business shortly after China embarked on economic reforms and opened its doors to the outside world. In the mid-1980s, she published several papers on China’s foreign trade reform in Chinese journals such as International Business and International Trade Tribune.
In the United States, Ms. Wang began her career working as a management consultant with Princeton, NJ based Kepner-Tregoe, Inc.. She provided executive training and consulting services in the areas of strategic decision-making, complex project management, and organizational process redesign. Her clients included some of the largest corporations in the U.S. and Asia including Johnson & Johnson, Corning, Sprint, and the Singapore-based Far East Ship Yard.
Ms. Wang also served as Director of Business Development at E-Steel Corporation, a New York based pioneer in e-marketplace in the global steel industry. At E-Steel, she led the company’s efforts to form partnerships between the company and top Chinese steel producers such as BaoSteel.
She also served as a senior marketing and operations executive at PTI Inc., a global manufacturer and wholesaler of home décor products with supply chain operations in the US, China and Vietnam. She helped to realign the company′s strategic focus to service top retail chains such as Target, IKEA, Kohl’s, and J.C. Penney.
Ms. Wang received a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade and a master’s degree in International Business from the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. She also holds an M.B.A. from The University of Maryland at College Park.
In this TEDx Talk, Haiyan Wang speaks about China's impact and relevance in the global market, what it means to America, and how to best leverage the advantages of its market.
"If you take a 100 year time frame," says Haiyan, "we are now sitting right in the middle of a historical turning point." She compares the U.S. GDP (Gross Domestic Product), which was 20 times greater than China's GDP in 1950, with what it is today. She makes a conservative guess that by 2025 China will catch up to that. Haiyan then asks, "What happens after 2025? Will China rise, and then go flat or dip as Japan did? My answer is: unlikely."
Putting it in a historical perspective, China and India's story is one of reemergence in the global market. As China's rise in the global market is inevitable, Haiyan asserts, "I'll say that the starting point for strategizing is to understand the major thrust of how China is changing the global economic structure."
Haiyan Wang’s “Getting China and India Right” program uses clear examples and solid data to show that China and India are the only two countries in the world that concurrently constitute four game-changing realities:
1. Mega-markets for almost every product and service.
2. Platforms that dramatically reduce a company’s global cost structure.
3. Platforms that significantly boost a company’s global technology and innovation base.
4. Springboards for the emergence of new fearsome global competitors.
She outlines how companies can leverage the market and resource opportunities presented by China and India to achieve global dominance within their respective industries.
The “Dragons and Tigers on the Global Stage—What It Means to You” program addresses the forces that are propelling the rise of the emerging multinational market, the relative strengths and weakness of the Chinese dragons versus the Indian tigers, the opportunities and challenges they face, and how established companies from developed economies can effectively compete with these challenges.
“How China Sees the World—and What It Means to You” presents an insider’s point of view of how people from the diverse social layers of China see the shifting landscape of the global market and how they each play a role in it. Haiyan tackles the hot button issues that matter to business decision makers and government within China as well as outside of China.
In the “Cultivating a Global Mindset” program, Haiyan offers solid guidelines that companies and individuals can use to develop a global mindset. With a rapidly changing global landscape, all are encouraged to integrate with diverse cultures and markets.
Getting China and India Right Based on solid data and rich examples, Wang illustrates that China and India are the only two countries in the world that simultaneously constitute four game-changing realities: mega-markets for almost every product and service, platforms to dramatically reduce a company′s global cost structure, platforms to significantly boost a company′s global technology and innovation base, and springboards for the emergence of new fearsome global competitors. This talk will outline how companies can leverage the market and the resource opportunities presented by the China and India phenomenon to achieve global dominance within their particular industries.
Dragons and Tigers on the Global Stage--What It Means to You Given the scale and growth rates of emerging economies coupled with access to global capital and global talent, it has now become much easier for an ambitious company from an emerging economy to become a global powerhouse and compete head-on with established giants such as Nissan, IBM, Cisco, and the like. Wang focuses on the forces that are propelling the rise of the emerging market multinational, the opportunities and challenges they face, the relative strengths and weaknesses of the Chinese dragons versus the Indian tigers, and how established companies from developed economies can compete effectively with these challengers.
How China Sees The World--And What It Means to You Whether you are selling to, buying from, partnering, or competing with China, understanding how China sees the world including itself will make you smarter in your dealings with the Chinese. Haiyan Wang presents an insider′s perspective on how people from various social layers of China′s political figures, business leaders, professionals, urban laborers, farmers, and youth see the shifting landscape and their role in it. She will bring alive the hot button issues facing people from different walks of China. It is these hot button issues that matter to government and business decision makers within China as well as outside.
Cultivating A Global MindsetFaced with a rapidly changing global landscape, many people continue to rely on their old lenses to make sense of the world around them. The winning global leaders, whether individuals or companies, will be the ones with a global mindset who truly grasp the unprecedented transformation of the global economy, and possess the capabilities to sense, filter, and integrate diverse opportunities on a global scale ahead of the pack. Haiyan Wang offers concrete guidelines that individuals and companies can use to develop a global mindset, which requires not only an openness to and knowledge of diversity across cultures and markets, but also the ability to integrate across this diversity.
