Alum Talks: A Career Using Chinese, From Beijing to the State Capitol and Back.
During this academic year, the Chinese program will be hosting a series of Alum Talks to help our current students connect with our alums and hear their stories.

 

Our first event will be next Thursday (Oct. 22) at 7 PM, featuring Brian Connors (’00). The title of his talk is “A Career Using Chinese, From Beijing to the State Capitol and Back.” Brian is Executive Director of the Michigan-China Innovation Center. He founded the Center after managing the State of Michigan’s China initiatives for four years. Brian also coordinated seven China trade and investment missions for former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s office, establishing partnerships with some of China’s most important provinces and industry groups. Before serving his home state of Michigan, he opened a successful chain of cafes in Beijing.
