Here are a handful of highlights from this weeks news cycle: In celebration of the upcoming Mid-Autumn festival our friends down that the MSCE held a lantern making activity at their center in Shekou, Over the weekend some of EyeShenzhen's Global Communication Ambassadors shared their expriences of Shenzhen and the platforms upcoming activites aimed at helping out our community, and lastly here's an interesting opinion piece I chose to share - a surprisingly progressive peice on gender roles and compromise in marriage out of a state run media organization.
Here are my handpicked selection of events for the week: Zack and Shenzhen Marketing are back with another installment of their bi-monthly networking event on Thursday (to be held at a secret location in Futian) - "the" casual mixer event for movers and shakers in the tech-marketing space in my humble opinion. Saturday our friends at Brass House are putting together the 2nd installment of their Open Air festival to be held in Shekou at the Reborn755 venue - our pick for an evening social engagement. Finally on Sunday our own Mindbody Club Discussion/Networking event rounds out the weekend with more socializing opportunities in a more intimate small group setting.
