Steno in a Strange Land – Jade King

More videos

Jade comes across more accents every day than most reporters come across in a year.  She can hear the subtle differences between Cheung, Chung, Cheng, Chen, Tseung, and Tsung; Lei, Lee, Le, Lai, and Li; Chaudhary and Choudhury.  She can use all chopsticks with near aplomb, except those weird square Korean ones.  She will share a buffet of highlights, tips and tricks for working internationally, particularly in Asia.  She will show demonstrations of remarkably skilled Chinese and Korean stenographers at work, and explain what it’s like working under high pressure alongside a colleague you don’t share a common language with.  If nothing else, she can share the wifi passport for just about every international airport on earth.
