About me

Jean Ting
Sage International Consultancy

Sage International Consultancy is founded on my many years of professional experience in China, Brazil, The Netherlands and Belgium where I worked as a consultant on strategic planning projects for various medium-sized and large businesses.

Running my own business in Brazil has given me the entrepreneurial vision that is essential to recognize what really matters. This vision, combined with my eagle eyes’ view of the business situation, allows me to understand the particular concerns and subjective standpoint of the customer.

This, together with my multicultural background, postgraduate studies in both engineering and finance, fluency in 4 languages (English, Dutch, Portuguese and Chinese – Mandarin, the official Chinese language, Cantonese and Shanghainese) and good knowledge in French, enables me to specialize in FDI (foreign direct investment) projects for companies wishing to exploit the ever growing potential of the emerging markets.

At Sage International Consultancy I mobilize and bring together the experts who will help your company achieve its full potential in Asia and South America.

Please take a look at my resume below for an overview of my education and professional background.
