Balance for Better


From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

无论是草根活动,还是全球行动,我们都正在进入一个令人振奋的时代。在这个时代,整个世界都期待着平衡。 我们渐渐意识到它的缺失,我们开始歌颂它的存在。

Balance is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced media coverage, gender-balanced sports coverage ...Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

平衡不仅仅是女性的问题,它还是一个商业问题。 我们正在追求男女平衡的董事会,男女平衡的政府。我们也在着力追求员工的性别平衡,财富的性别平衡,媒体报道的性别平衡,体育报道的性别平衡等等......性别平衡无论是对于经济和还是社区的蓬勃发展而言都极其重要。

When Your Career Gives You 'Lemons', 

Make 'Lemonade'


Laurie Underwood 


Communications Specialist, Author, Journalist, Corporate Communication Director


Prof. Underwood is an American specialist in cross-cultural and corporate communications with 20+ years of experience in Greater China. Having co-authored two best-selling China business books (China CEO and China Entrepreneur), she is finishing the third book this summer.  As a Sr Consultant with Sino Associates, she specialises in Crisis Management, Leadership, Intercultural Communications, Corporate Communications, and Cross-cultural Management. She holds an MBA from CEIBS and a DBA from Grenoble Ecole de Management, and is based in Shanghai. 

"When your career gives you lemons, make lemonade!" This twist on the American saying is the topic Prof. Laurie Underwood will share during the Women in Business conference. Matching the theme of #BalanceForBetter, Dr. Underwood tackles the difficult but increasingly common problem of overcoming unexpected career set-backs, with the goal of turning disappointment into discovery. She will share (publicly for the first time ever) her own initially painful professional experience as one of the 'targets' of a corporate downsizing -- not once but three times -- during her own career.  The topic is particularly relevant for women: Due to the high number of female employees in 'soft skills' departments (communications, marketing, and HR), more women may be 'first cut' during a business downturn. Being prepared -- mentally and emotionally -- is the secret to surviving and thriving when facing such a challenge.


How Cancer Made Me Better, 
but I Still Wouldn't Recommend It!


Kara Wutzke 


Founder and Head Coach of K2Fit, an online fitness training platform. 


Growing up in Canada, Kara was surrounded by athletic and competitive boys. She played soccer alongside them, until the parents of opposing teams petitioned to get Kara off the field.

She went into the male dominated industry of Personal Training at 19 and quickly became the number one sales person in the city, then rising to Management.

Since being diagnosed with Cancer in December 2015, she went through numerous surgeries and extreme setbacks including being unable to workout (which for a fitness trainer is a huge blow), to not being able to walk without extreme pain and days being bedridden. The PRD community helped her through her battle and finally getting back to her normal self.

She realised that her calling was to help teach people how to live their healthiest lives. She changed the way of training and has helped thousands of people so far. Now, one of the most recognised trainers across China, it is her goal to help over 1,000,000 people transform their lives and live happy, healthy, and fit.
