What people say about Haiyan Wang

“….. You gave an outstanding presentation to the Board and Management Team. I have heard a number of presentations on China in the past, but yours was the best I have heard. I look forward to having you do the same in the future for our company. I was delighted to hear of your knowledge of the steel industry in China and hope to be able to maintain a dialogue to get your insights on this subject from time to time.”

“The response we’ve had so far has been very positive, not only to your talk but from the many conversation you were able to have with the attendees. The only comment is that they wished there was more time to explore which is great.”

“Thank you Haiyan, I think your presentation was among the strongest we’ve had from a speaker at our Annual Conferences, in terms of both content and delivery. I thought the discussion panel went very well, and I particularly like that you gave a very direct and serious answer to the question concerning the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.”
