M TALKS CHINA aims to deliver the best experience in Shanghai on “culture, books, and ideas” at Glam, legendary site of the Shanghai Literary Festival and one of Shanghai’s cultural and intellectual hubs.


Leading data-based media intelligence agency UNICEPTA tracked and analyzed Chinese print and new media coverage of 15 companies from five industries (automotive, aviation, chemical, IT and pharmaceutical) during Covid-19 outbreak. 

This analysis of nearly 5,000 articles sheds light on some important lessons of managing business reputation in China, such as which topics spark journalists’ interest more than others,  why CSR isn’t just about making donations, as well as how a disaster can be turned into an opportunity. 

Evelyn Engesser, General Manager of UNICEPTA China since 2012, will present this survey and discuss pandemic-era reputation management strategy along with her Chinese colleague Rong Wang, Vice General Manager of UNICEPTA China. 

Dr. Evelyn Engesser worked as research associate and lecturer in the communications department at Mainz University, Germany and led market research unit of a business consultancy before joining UNICEPTA, a leading provider of media and data intelligence solutions in 2010. In 2012, she became General Manager of UNICEPTA China.

Dr. Rong Wang is Vice General Manager of UNICEPTA China. She has more than 10 years’ working experience in communication consulting and market research, and has supported numerous Fortune 500 brands with strategy consulting.

No.5 The Bund (corner of Guangdong Lu)


After 23 years serving in one of Shanghai’s most iconic neighbourhoods, it is bittersweet for us to announce the official closing of M on the Bund and Glam dining lounge & bar on 15 February, 2022.


Over the years, we have served over three million guests across local and worldwide communities, among them some influential and prominent names. With your support, we have become more than a restaurant of excellent food and warm hospitality, but also a platform where like-minded people gather and connect. We are proud of the numerous initiatives we have founded and supported and humbled by the awards we have received, for they have made us one of the city’s most distinguished dining establishments.

It has been a tremendous pleasure for us to serve the community over the past two decades, and we owe an immense debt of gratitude to everyone who has loved our restaurants and supported our businesses. Your trust and loyal patronage have allowed us to grow and mature. Therefore, while we are sad to depart, we are more than grateful for the moments spent with you, and we hope your time with us has left you with nothing but happy and indelible memories.

As we bid our final goodbye, we would like to create a memory photo album of stories and good times. We kindly invite anyone wishing to share their memorable moments with us by sending photos to [email protected], or bring them along when you visit.

For those who would like to send their farewell in person, our restaurants will remain in full operation until the closing date, and we would definitely love to see you again. Please make all reservations via our website, Chope and Dianping.

Together, let’s complete this journey in joy and fulfilment.
