Oliver, a UK citizen, joined CRCC Asia Beijing in May 2016, following completion of his MSc in Chinese Studies from the University of Glasgow.
His early influences for choosing to work in China stemmed from reading China-centric books by authors-James Kynge & David Shambaugh. It spurred him to teach English in Shanghai in 2012. Since then he has accumulated China work experience in Sino-oriented companies such as: China Britain Business Council, LNP China and Mandarin House.
He is excited to be living in Beijing in an area, rich in old retirees to challenge to Chinese chess ‘xiangqi’.
