Quickly review the to-do list from yesterday and browse through the industry news updates sent from my colleagues. Warm up for the work day!
Prepare for client meetings. Touch base with the manager on the meeting agenda. We always listen closely to understand the client’s needs & thoughts regarding our work, and tailor our outputs to cater to their nuanced preferences.
Write meeting notes, communicate and brain storm with the research team for the meeting follow up. Gathering and reforming our knowledge is always the most fun part, and is also the base of our work. Team members will be given their individual assignments and the BD team will be informed to keep all meeting information on file for future follow ups.
Lunch time! Relax and have lunch together with colleagues.
Work on other projects. Sometimes it’s interviews with experts to meet project needs. We will cover as many aspects of the industry as we can; it’s always exciting to hear about the latest trends and analysis from different key opinion leaders and players in the industry.
It’s time to sit down and listen to some of the findings from other members of the team. During team meeting, we discuss how to perfect our findings and what else we still need to add to the mix. Numbers are only numbers, but we aim to use “magic” to achieve wonders.

Read over new e-mails and notes from the day. Look over social and industry related news pertinent to our clients.
Figure out what aspects of the current projects and reports need to finished by the end of the day and organize my schedule accordingly. Prepare for and then get on the phone with our client in New York. During this time, touch base on how the project is coming along and see what other requirements or feedback he may have.
Meet with project leaders and start on the task at hand, usually relating to research (both primary and secondary) or excel specific analysis.
Head out and grab some Northeastern Chinese cuisine down the street with some co-workers.
Reconvene with the team and update the manager on our progress.
Either continue with the first project or join in on another one. In the past, tasks I have personally been involved with include drawing up a market entry proposal for a well known American food retail brand, calculating average spending breakdowns for a leading overseas insurance carrier, and assisting the marketing team with external communication and newspaper articles for publications both in Shanghai and abroad.
