Recently, we enhanced our senior leadership meeting with a visit to the renowned Sanxingdui archaeological site in Sichuan Province. Famous for its significant Bronze Age artifacts from the ancient Shu civilization, Sanxingdui was discovered in the 1920s and extensively excavated in the 1980s. The site has revealed a wealth of unique cultural relics, including intricate bronze masks, jade artifacts, gold objects, and pottery. It has been trending in Chinese society, with some brands making collaborations with Sanxingdui. McDonald’s, for example, has collaborated on a burger and packaging with the Sanxingdui Museum.

At Sanxingdui, executives had an opportunity to delve into the mysteries of ancient civilizations. Through expert lectures and witnessing excavations, they explored cultures once thought beyond China’s reach, hinting at Sanxingdui’s main thesis: connections with distant civilizations. Some even pondered about extraterrestrial influences—an intriguing notion sparking discussions on innovative thinking.

Sanxingdui proved to be the perfect setting for fostering fresh perspectives and embracing “blue ocean thinking” — venturing into uncharted territories of exploration, culture and creativity.
