“In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang is a … philosophy, describing how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent…” – Wikipedia

I am currently in Guangzhou, China where I am working with the Guangdong Toy Association and the Messe Frankfurt in producing the second annual Toy Talks Forum. Featuring speakers from the U.S. and China, the forum seeks to create a better understanding between east and west about the challenges facing their respective toy economies. In short, we are looking to find how what we may see as divergent interests, may actually be interdependent if not co-dependent.

I am very excited about this year's line up of speakers. I am honored to have joining me on the dais:

  • Mr. Chris Byrne, Founder, Byrne Communications
    Chris will offer "Inside Tips for Success in the Current Toy Business." This is an in-depth look at what’s working in the toy business right now. With a focus on Western brands, particularly emerging/upstart brands.

It's a formidable line up who will be sharing a wealth of information about the hopes, dreams and yes fears that drive the global toy industry. I look forward to seeing some of you later today and reporting back to you on what we learned.
