My career so far has a heavy focus on the management of EU and UK government-funded official overseas development programmes, covering a variety of industries. Currently I am working as an independent consultant for a HMG-funded project on market access issues for cosmetic and pharmaceutical products between China and UK/Europe. Before this, I spent 2.5 years in the UK Embassy Beijing mostly on sustainable urban planning and smart cities, but also on financial services, and consumer and creative industries. Prior to joining the UK Embassy, I was in a project management role for two years in a British private consultancy delivering projects funded by the European Commission.
Since last year, on an ad hoc basis I am also involved in the EU Film Festival that takes place annually in China, leading on the communication with Member States Embassies and occasionally with visiting filmmakers.
I am familiar with commonly used project management frameworks, and used to working in a cross-cultural context with people of all seniority levels. My network of contacts range from government officials and academia to businesses and industry bodies, both in China and in Europe and the UK. My language proficiency is highly regarded by people I work with, and I have a track record of delivering high-quality translation/interpretation, reports and presentations in both English and Chinese.
I have a BA degree for English from Beijing Language and Culture University.
