About Big Dashan

Dashan in Chinese means big mountain

A big mountain can be viewed as an obstacle or a gateway to your personal or professional objectives. Big Dashan helps clients define a clear vision of the path up the mountain and then gives them the tools and skills needed to climb up. Once on the top of the mountain, you can claim yourself the Big Dashan!
