New Associate – Gordon Dumoulin

August 28, 2020

Dutch-born Gordon Dumoulin joined us as TFF Associate in August 2020.

He says this about himself:

“The real source of satisfaction and success in today’s global dynamic jungle is not to blur your spirit and ambitions solely by traditional points of view and conservative concepts.

Instead, let your unbiased and unprejudiced observations, imagination and faith grasp the endless learning opportunities and develop your own humble presence & happiness in this new world.

Gordon broke up from a successful business career in The Netherlands and lives in Beijing where he is the founder and CEO at Dumoco Natural Ingredients.

About this, he says:

“I am passionate about trying to promote a better China understanding in the ‘outside world’. That is why 5iZ has been born – to stimulate a more complete and wider perspective on China today.

I’ve lived in China since 2009 and when people ask me how is life as an expat in China, I always emphasize that I am not an expat; I consider myself an immigrant and a grateful guest in Chinese society.”

And he is rather active and has many followers on LinkedIn. See his profile here.

And he edits and writes the newsletter with blog 5iZ about which you can read more – including the significance of “5” in Chinese thinking.

He also publishes articles about China on Medium.

    I am writing from the U.S. Unfortunately there has been a significant increase in anti-Chinese rhetoric and animosity in recent months here. I think this can be traced directly to the present administration and right wing media outlets that parrot its words.
    I am gratified to see someone working to bridge the gap between cultures here and promote more mutual understanding. I wish you luck.

      Dear William Manteris – many many thanks. You see, it is in the genes of those of us who work for peace to try to build bridges. The militarists tend, instead and regrettably, to build walls. They will lose in the long run, but for the time being, they get away with it to the detriment of all of us. My best – Jan
