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


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.

Explore, Discover… Build a Vision…. and Partner with the World


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.

Why should I participate in Tulshi Sen Consulting’s Asia Mission and not go with Team Canada or with a provincial trade delegation}



Provincial and Federal Trade delegation objectives is to take people who are already in global trade or are involved in global trade to sell more products and services.


‘In Tulshi Sen Consulting’s Asia Retreat the participants need have no previous business experience in global trade.’


To participate effectively in such missions, usually one must already have a global business. In these trade missions the delegates are not usually trained or oriented in global trade and protocols but are expected to be experts in the business. They are mostly export oriented only.


In Tulshi Sen Consulting’s Asia Retreat the participants need have no previous business experience in global trade. The participants learn the art of global trade as they develop contacts and contracts. The participants are given the insight into the world of business in order for the participants to build businesses for their nation or for themselves. They are given hands on experience.


‘Tulshi Sen Consulting will share over 30 years of experience in the field of global trade in Hong Kong and China.’


It is easier and faster to start an import business and the import business will give the entrepreneur deep insight into export business. This way the individuals or Nations can build their import/export business faster.


After participating in Tulshi Sen Consulting’s Asia Retreat joining Team Canada or a Provincial trade delegation would be more productive and effective if the participant had no previous global trade experience.


‘This retreat is specially designed and tailored for the Aboriginal People of Canada and United States’


Tulshi Sen Consulting’s Asia Retreat will make the participants effective players in the world of global business. Tulshi Sen Consulting has taken trade delegations since 1988 of mainstream Canadians and Americans to train them in global trade and build businesses internationally. Tulshi Sen Consulting will share over 30 years of experience in the field of global trade in Hong Kong and China. The participants will gain an understanding of business strategies, from the back alleys to the great trading halls of business on a global basis.


The activities stated above in the information booklet clearly spell out the advantage of participating in the Asia Leadership Retreat. It is for building a vision and a strategic plan for an economy for the First Nation and for individuals.


This retreat is specially designed and tailored for the Aboriginal People of Canada and United States to adapt to the global business community along with cross cultural training.




‘We have to experience global trade in the field like we have to learn swimming in the water.’


Like it is impossible to learn swimming by reading a book on swimming and taking classroom lessons from the best swimmers in the world. We will know how to swim, but we cannot swim. We will know the principles of swimming but if we are thrown in the water in all likelihood we will drown unless we are saved. Similarly, we have to experience global trade in the field like we have to learn swimming in the water. We can learn swimming in the water from another swimmer without having to read a book, so can we learn global trade in the field of action from another global trader without having to go through theories.


Nobody can learn swimming without going into the water and the same way nobody can learn global trade without engaging in the field of action of global trade. This is the opportunity and we feel the safest and the fastest way to build a business or career in today’s fast changing global economy.
