Sofia, Bulgaria (PressExposure) November 04, 2009 -- âA gifted storyteller, Jung Changâs presentations stimulate emotions and leave audiences reflecting upon her powerful and moving messages, taking them on a thoughtful and, at times, emotional journey.â â says Christina Vlahova, of CSA Celebrity Speakers â âAnd we are very happy to be able to offer our clients across Eastern Europe the possibility to invite Jung Chang to their conferences and events and to have the opportunity to learn directly from her.â
Born in Yibin, Sichuan Province, China in 1952, Jung Chang worked as a peasant, a âbarefootâ doctor, a steelworker and an electrician before becoming an English Language student and, later, an assistant lecturer at Sichuan University. She left China for Britain in 1978 and was awarded a scholarship by York University, where she obtained a PhD in Linguistics in 1982 - the first person from the Peopleâs Republic of China to receive a doctorate from a British University. She has also been awarded honorary doctorates from the Universities of Buckingham, York, Warwick and the Open University.
Her spellbinding lectures charting the dramatic developments in 20th century China provide a truly unique, inspiring and uplifting experience and help to understand the challenges of 21st Century globalisation. The lessons to be learned from her latest highly acclaimed book âMao â the Unknown Storyâ add tremendously to the understanding of Chinese culture and development.
