Asia Engage

When people around the world seek products from Asia, they turn to Alibaba. When they seek trusted advisors on Asia, they turn to Asia Engage. 


Asia Engage is a database and marketplace of high-quality vetted advisors, who provide our members with content and insights on greater Asia, with a particular focus on China. 

OTT video channel - drawn from YouTube and Vimeo into the West

App that works behind China firewall through VPN. 

While Alibaba is famous for connecting buyers and sellers of goods, no such platform existed for suppliers and searchers of professional services relating to Asia - until Asia Engage.

Asia Engage is a services database of hand-vetted advisors on Asia from around the world, available via web browser and mobile app. 




Red (红) is a powerful colour in Asian culture, which signifies the blood that flows in every person's veins, and represents our united humanity. 

Circle () connotes egalitarianism (the Western paradigm would be the Knights of the Round Table). Everyone has something to contribute, from their diverse points of view. 

Network ( implies interconnectedness, the strength of a wide network, and the beyond borders when we use the internet to cooperate.

It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a network to achieve value, doing business in Asia. 

RCN Asia is founded by sole owner Glyn MacLean, with the support of a community of 250 + Asia Advisors, contractors and personnel worldwide.

Preparing organisations 

and people to Engage Asia.


More than 50 million Chinese people live outside of Mainland China, which represents one of the largest export markets.


Regardless of the political mood, corporate, government, SME and NGO clients need support to form effective and sustainable strategies to engage Asian audiences. That's where RCN Asia helps, in the areas of media, marketing, business advisory, technology implementation and capability building.
