OUT OF THE CONFERENCE ROOM

Shanghai is a fascinating and contrasting place that is best understood by stepping out of the conference room and into the urban environment. Our offerings range from three-hour walks to full day programs and more complex week-long trainings. These translate into different applications: visiting and trend-scouting; team-building and orientation; and creative walkshops.
