During March I was invited to be one of two international speakers for the TaiSPO 2016 Fitness Industry and Fitness Club Management Forum held in Taipei, Taiwan. This annual event is organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and the Management Forum is designed to give attendees a deeper, more balanced understanding of emerging industry trends. This was the 42nd year of the event making it one of the most established global fitness industry events.
It was my first time in Taiwan and a fascinating trip. I wanted to create a good connection with the audience and so had my entire slide deck translated into traditional Chinese and then worked closely with the translator to ensure the simultaneous translation was accurate. I was pleased with the post event feedback with 96% of attendees rating my talk either good or excellent.
