This week the Ameson Foundation held its inaugural series of events for its newly created Professional Pathways Program (PPP). PPP was created to offer a series of professional development events for individuals poised to be the global leaders of tomorrow. It provides opportunities for students, graduates, and professionals from all over the world to connect with mentors, attend presentations by successful industry leaders, and navigate the job market as they seek to begin or continue their careers in the United States, China, or around the world.
On Monday and Tuesday, PPP held five virtual speaker workshops on Sesame Bridge (Zhimaqiao), an online career development platform. PPP arranged for several distinguished guest speakers to participate in the event and deliver presentations on a wide variety of topics including entrepreneurship, interview skills, financial services industries, and more. All speakers provided invaluable opportunities for viewers to learn from seasoned professionals at the top of their fields. Following each presentation, online attendees had the chance to ask questions directly to the speaker as part of a virtual Q&A session.
Distinguished speakers for this series included Mr. Guorui Su, Head of North America at Hive; Ms. Rose Luo, HR Manager at Procter & Gamble; Ms. Bella Cui, HR Manager at Unilever; Mr. Philip Li, Vice President at GCM Grosvenor; and Professor Sean Zhang, Executive Vice Chairman of the Ameson Foundation. Recordings of each of the workshop sessions are available at zhimaqiao.com for those who were unable to attend. The next PPP virtual speaker workshops will be held on December 7th and December 14th.
These speaker workshops and all PPP events reflect Ameson's commitment to the development of new educational platforms and organization of educational & cultural exchanges around the world.
