FCGroup provides business and professional networking platforms for connections and guanxi to leverage and focus business and career objectives.
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.
FCGroup provides a unique platform of industry themed networking events at which the art of small talk becomes the stepping-stone to big business. 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 Founder of FCGroup, Colin Friedman, has been organising events since the 1970’s. The highlights have included Folk Music Festivals in Israel, a Chinese Language and Culture Exhibition in Beijing, bringing the East Meets West – End (that’s London’s West End) Musical to Beijing, Expat Services Expos in Beijing and, since March 2007, regular networking events in Beijing and of course the now well-known Netbonding “Escape Concrete Beijing” daytrips to the quiet and beautiful rural Beijing. Colin has been invited to talk on numerous radio programmes and CCTV have recently finished filming a documentary about his life in Beijing. It is slated to be screened early 2012.

- Real Estate, Global Mobility, Health & Wellness, Hospitality & Tourism, Green Tech, NGOs, NPOs

FCGroup’s Slogan is “Networking for Business, Learning, and Inspiration“.
FCGroup的创始人费满林从1970年起就到中国，并且组织过各种类型的活动。FCGroup 的前身FC Club 北京活动即由费满林从2006年开始组织。迄今为止，FCGroup 在北京以英文为主的商务社交圈内是最被认可的活动之一。
FCGroup 本身以致力于帮助参与社交的人群实现他们的商务目标，在此基础上，FCGroup 也鼓励创新的人，慈善机构，创业者等利用此平台传达他们的信息。
FCGroup 当前的主要活动是在每周二晚各五星级酒店的场地内举行。为了让更多的人能参与这个活动，FCGroup 也正开始组织一些周末室外的一些活动以及每年一次的Expat Services Expo 活动。
