About John

I'm a Canadian entrepreneur and philanthropist who has been in China for almost a quarter of a century. During that time, I've founded four companies, and been a consultant to numerous Fortune 500 companies.

For those who are interested in business in China, I have a wealth of experience, and lots of connections and networks. Always looking both for people that I can do business with, and for those who are simply seeking advice/help about how to navigate the waters of doing business in China.
