Business Familiarization Missions

Opening Doors for the Youth and the Nation to the New Opportunities of Today

Economic Development for Today’s World

Aboriginal Leaders And Youth Business Familiarization Mission For Community Economic Development


Helping to Build the New Economic Vision for the Community for Today’s World

This Mission will give the Leadership the opportunities to observe the New Economy first Hand. It will stimulate their entrepreneurial juices to build a vision for their communities in harmony with the current Social and Economic conditions of the world.

It is a fact that in today’s world, distance is dead and geographical isolation is no longer an obstacle to embrace the global opportunities. This Mission will provide the Leadership with direct insight into the Global Economy and how it operates in individual lives and Communities throughout the world.

It is a fact that in today’s world the individual and groups are not limited by their pocket book as much as they are limited by their imagination and their insight. This Mission will stimulate the Imagination of the Leadership.

We live in a world where anything that is imagined probably already exists or can be made.

We know today’s world belongs to the visionary more than to the logician. This Mission in Asia will be an ideal place for the Leadership, to think out of the box and create a new outlook to add to their vision for economic growth for the Nation and the Youth of the Nations.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge”

Success Story From Previous Mission

Sam W. Gull, an Aboriginal youth, with Tulshi Sen at the Hong Kong Jockey Club as a VIP guest of Hong Kong Trade Development Council.

“I went with Tulshi Sen to Hong Kong and established a Hong Kong Corporation. I developed partners in Hong Kong and I made my first deal and made in the region of US$20,000. The second deal I made US$30,000. All this I did under the guidance of Tulshi Sen Consulting which included Andy Chan the resident senior consultant in Hong Kong of Tulshi Sen Consulting and Neil Thompson Chartered Accountant and Senior Consultant of Tulshi Sen Consulting in Vancouver. I am looking forward to helping all the Native Youths to build their dreams and their lives in freedom which I feel is the way for our people's growth.”

Bill Gates talking about the Youth of today

“Although the world has changed dramatically during the last 30 years, I believe we are only at the very beginning of what is possible. If we do our jobs as adults, and equip young people with the knowledge and skills they need to turn their great ideas into breakthrough innovations, I believe they will find solutions for many of the difficult problems our world faces today. Their future – and ours – depends on it.”

Bill Gates, Speech to Waterloo University Students, Feb. 25, 2008


Global Careers and Remote Employment

Today an individual can get employment in any major city and they do not have to commute or live in any particular location.

To know how to take advantage of the opportunities will require insight into the world economy and how it functions today. This wisdom cannot be acquired from books. It must be experienced.

Job opportunities need not only be produced in the Nation. They can live in the Nation and work anywhere in the world and earn more than they ever imagined.

The participants can formulate ideas while in the Mission to facilitate training and development in the Nation for enabling members of the Nation to seek remote employment. They will not commute they will telecommute.

Global Trading House

The leadership and the participants will also get a first hand experience as to how global trading houses work in Asia. The participants will experience how to engage global trading houses to work for their Nations to support their own economic initiatives.

The First Nations have resources such as water, minerals, agriculture and lumber, etc., the world needs these scarce resources and these can be distributed to the Asian Nations from China through the trading houses.

Youth Programs

Creating a Vision for Youth programs

To unleash the creativity of the youth will be the first priority of discussion, observation and planning in the Mission.

The Trade Fairs will be the site where discussions and planning will be done based on practical application. This will give the leadership an immediate grasp of the opportunities available.

In the Mission they will see how the youth of the world are being empowered today in the global economy. They will also see how creativity is the real capital of the world today when backed by innovation.

India and China, the fastest growing economy in the world, have very little natural resources if any. They are growing faster than any nation in the world. Why? Because of the creativity of their people which is their natural resource. The First Nations Leadership and participants will pickup pointers with which they can facilitate empowering their youth and the people of their Nations to enhance their creativity.

Developing Strategies for Transition into Today’s Economy

This Mission will give the leadership and the participants the first hand experience of how the world is operating today. This vision of implementing the strategy of change can be formulated from their own experience in the Mission.

Protocols and Systems for Personal and Economic Development

With the proliferation of instant communications through audio, video and internet and phone system, business deals are made everyday globally.

The Leadership of any nation and any corporation know that they need to know these protocols and systems to lead their nations and their corporations.

This Mission will be the venue through which the participants will be able to orient themselves speedily and effortlessly in Cross Cultural activities.

The New Business Culture

Now we live in the midst of a new business culture. This is the world of collaboration and partnering. We live in a Global community, where knowledge of Social Skills is essential in building businesses and economies. Large corporations are investing heavily now more than ever before in training their leadership and their staff in this new culture.

The Process of Global Trade

This Mission will be of great value to demystify cross border transactions; to know how import and export transactions take place.

The participants will be oriented in this enormously important economic development tool onsite as it happens.

Meeting With The Global Market

The leadership of the First Nations in this Mission will be immersed in Globalization in the midst of a Global Trade Conference and Trade Fairs.

They will be rubbing shoulders with others who are in the flow of the Globalization process.

We also know that the playing field of the world of business has been levelled and everyone can stand on an equal footing regardless of their present size of business, Nations and Communities.
