“Inviting James as a speaker for our conference about abilities and requirements for managers and future developments was definitely the right decision, since James is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in terms of the nonprofit sector. We received great feedback from the audience and are looking forward to seeing James again this year.” Sophie Winckler, Registrar / Exhibition Manager at Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin, Germany, hired James as a conference speaker in 2008.

The Future of the Nonprofit Sector in China, January 22, 2010. James spoke at a luncheon of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong about the future of the nonprofit sector in Hong Kong and Mainland China, comparing it with that of the United States and Europe. In the speech, he drew parallels between the leadership challenges that occurred in the nonprofit sectors in the United States and Europe and offered predictions about what is likely to occur in Hong Kong and China. He also offered some immediate steps that may address the inevitable growth of the sector in Hong Kong and China. The content of the talk is based on interviews with many nonprofit executives in Hong Kong over a period of eighteen months, a review of various research reports and government documents and draws upon his thirty years’ experience as an executive search consultant and commentator in the field. This essay is adapted from that speech.
