The bestselling author Frank Sieren is considered „one of Germany’s leading China specialists“. He has lived in Beijing for 27 years and is considered one of the very few who have realistically assessed the rise of China. In „Shenzhen“ (Random House, 2021), his latest book, Sieren reports on Shenzhen, the new Silicon Valley, one of the world’s most innovative cities with 25 million inhabitants.
Frank Sieren has over a quarter of a century of experience as a correspondent and columnist for various daily newspapers and business magazines (Süddeutsche, Wirtschaftswoche, Die Zeit, Handelsblatt, Tagesspiegel). His China documentaries run very successfully on ARD and ZDF. Sieren also writes for China.Table, Germany’s only daily China briefing. His texts reach up to 200,000 readers on LinkedIn, and he has a total of over 21,000 followers. Some of his YouTube appearances have over 200,000 views. Sieren is a highly sought-after keynote speaker for German business and China coach.
NDR recently dedicated its own 45-minute program to him („Das rote Sofa“) and the ARD cult program „Titel Thesen Temperamente“ also devoted its own segment. No one in Germany has written more China books than Sieren, and no one has landed more Spiegel bestsellers on the subject of China.
