Korea Business Central Releases Exclusive Interview with Tom Coyner, Author of Mastering Business in Korea


Carlsbad, CA January 29, 2010 -- Korea Business Central (, the premiere Korean business and networking site, is sponsoring an ongoing series of interviews on how to succeed at Korean business. The first interview is with Tom Coyner, author and business consultant.

Tom Coyner has more than 20 years of management experience in Korea and Japan working for American firms. He has an MBA in International Business from the University of Southern California and his recent book is entitled Mastering Business in Korea.

Coyner's Korea Business Central interview highlights the idea that doing business in Korea is not as hard as it may seem at first glance but relationships are most important. He notes "There is no substitute for getting one's feet on the ground and getting to know people." What may surprise many, Coyner points out, "Many companies make more net profits out of Korea than they do even in China...."

In the interview Coyner shares that contrary to some reports, Koreans are open and receptive to doing business with non-Koreans and are intellectually curious. That said, Korean society is incredibly competitive, both on business and social levels.
