Lecturer in International Business, Management, School of Management and Marketing, Deakin University

Dr Mona Chung is a bicultural expert in cross-cultural negotiations whose work addresses the cultural gaps between Westerners and Chinese in the fields of commerce and education. Not understanding or ignoring the vast cultural differences between Australia and China has contributed to many companies suffering heavy financial losses over many years.
Dr Chung has extensive experience in Western-Chinese business relationships. She specialises in negotiation, communication, strategic planning, management and marketing practices on behalf of international organisations (commercial and educational). As a bicultural person, she short-circuits processes and produces results that increase efficiency by between 70% and 50%, with significant cost savings.
She is on the executive board of the Victoria branch of the Australia China Business Council. Being highly experienced in a large number of industries and a frequent visitor to China, Dr Chung is a guest speaker at many public forums and author of an extensive list of publications in cross-cultural business studies. Her first book, in 2008, was ‘Shanghaied: Why Foster’s Could Not Survive China’. Her second book, in 2011, 'Doing Business Successfully in China' is now available on
