About the FCGroup

The FCGroup® organises networking events in Beijing every Tuesday, organises monthly Daytrips and larger events once per Quarter.

The FCGroup® is designed to help people Netbond. That is to say it is something  far more powerful than a standard networking platform. The FCGroup® pro-actively helps people to build and strengthen business and professional connections and guanxi in order to leverage and focus business and career objectives.

The FCGroup® is the central hub of a large network of business and professional people who meet to forge new contacts and strengthen existing contacts for business, career and social purposes. The basic concept is that it in order to progress up the ladder to achieve one’s goal the bottleneck is not who you know but who knows that you know. This goal is only obtainable by attending quality networking events where people are interested in listening to each other not in talking at each other. The venues are carefully selected to ensure that they too are of a suitable quality and can provide the fitting atmosphere and ambiance to encourage both successful networking and networking for success.

The FCGroup® provides a unique platform of industry themed networking events at which the art of small talk becomes the stepping-stone to big business. The FCGroup®’s events are open to one and all who are able to converse in English and attract an equal number of English speaking Chinese and English speaking foreigners.

The FCGroup® organises networking events in Beijing every Tuesday

1st Tuesday: Foreigners and Chinese – An All Industry social networking evening to help stimulate new ideas that can only be found outside the box.
