Author of Importing From China
and Award winning Business Woman

If so, then getting the latest knowledge from an expert can be THE thing that makes your business fly!

Lindy Chen, Managing Director of award-winning ChinaDirect Sourcing and author of 'Import From China', has worked for multi-national companies and started a management consultancy firm in China and has also lectured in international trade. With a mission of "making their clients prosperous and globally competitive", Lindy started ChinaDirect, assisting companies' business dealings with China and helping them to grow and expand.

Originally from China, Lindy has been a resident in Australia for eight years. She is fluent in English and Chinese and has a natural ability to connect people from diverse backgrounds. Lindy is a creative and dynamic business facilitator blending the best from the East and West. Her refreshing personality, excellent communication and interpersonal skills enable her to build trust and confidence with people and organizations. Her professionalism and passion for getting things done has gained her a good reputation both in China and around the globe.

Triton Foundation Manager, Helen Baker says why she chooses Lindy Chen above the dozens of other Chinese brokers:
  1. Most people purport to have contacts in China but these turn out to be three layers deep - that is, they are using Hong Kong brokers. So by the time you get a quote, two even three other people in the chain have put their mark-up on which makes the deal unworkable. Lindy employs her own team working just for her on the ground - no middlemen.

  2. Other brokers are non-Chinese who have done a few business trips, made some contacts and are trying to deal with the cultural complexities - but really start from behind the eight ball. Lindy is Chinese and therefore understands the cultural factors that are imperative for success.

  3. I am so impressed with Lindy's professionalism and passion. Lindy has a system, a business process created strictly for the benefit of developing business needs in and from China. Lindy's process helps customers understand exactly what they get for their money.

Everyone knows that sourcing products from China reduces costs, but where do you start (... and does it have to be difficult)?

So many small businesses would like to take advantage of using Chinese suppliers but don't know where to start, or are lost in a cross-cultural communication breakdown.

Before selecting the optimum supplier, obtain the relevant knowledge and learn what to look for.

"Having actually been burnt a couple of times when dealing directly with China in the past, we know the dangers. Using Lindy Chen's system dramatically reduces this risk. From her experience, sound honest advice, clearer communication, and access to a well established Chinese network - the benefits more than cover the cost."
Mike O'Hagan, Founder & Owner, MiniMovers
"Lindy Chen has carried out many different projects, all of which were completed on or before time and many times at a much lower cost than originally estimated. Lindy secured a fully imported price of nearly 80% less than could be achieved here. I was amazed. Even better is the quality is exactly the same... of equal importance to cost is reliability, communication and technical understanding. In regard to these, ChinaDirect is excellent. Everything is always explained clearly, at every stage you know what to expect."
Rohan 0'Reilly, CEO, Alternative Foods Company Pty Ltd
