HQ Magazine 2013
The latest James Bond film, Skyfall, inspired our editorial team and crept into the theme of this edition of HQ. It features China Executive’s inaugural interview with Qing Xingcai, President of Lishen Battery Co., Ltd, where he discusses company values, global aspirations, and the next generation of leaders. In Turning up the Heat, we explore the pervasive use of social media in our technologically-reliant business world and the different approaches to online crisis. And in HQ Exclusive, we will introduce you to Maria Lustig, a Scandinavian entrepreneur who has more than 10 years experience living and operating a business in Beijing.

Turning Up the Heat
Managing Crises in the Age of Social Media
When doing business globally, cultural lenses are – by their very nature – an often overlooked, yet crucially influential element. Overcoming such hidden obstacles can prove challenging, even insurmountable at times, without adequate preparation or guidance.
As another year draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on what has been an invigorating and successful tenth year of CSOFT. This year we have celebrated our anniversary the world over with our 10-10-10 initiative – ten events in ten locations, signifying ten years.
