Working at Gao Feng Adivsory was one of the most eye-opening experiences of my professional career so far. I joined Gao Feng as an intern just after university with a keen interest in China, a desire to use my Chinese and English language skills in my work, and a curiosity to understand the Chinese business environment and its interactions with foreign and domestic stakeholders. Gao Feng delivered on all of these objectives and more. From my first day, I began working on a mandate to design the China autonomous vehicle strategy for a Fortune 100 client. The mandate was of such strategic importance that we met frequently with the China CEO and senior leadership, and wielded strategic influence up to international HQ level. Such was the repute of Gao Feng.
I was endlessly inspired by the energy and talent of the Gao Feng team. Young, hungry and ambitious, we came from different backgrounds and used these to our advantage working on market-leading strategy mandates, entirely unconstrained by scale or sector (the team worked on topics ranging as widely as pharmaceuticals, TCM, consumer retail and autonomous vehicles). I cannot think of a more challenging, exhilarating, front line place to experience China than Gao Feng.
