Culture Clash! Doing Bussiness Abroad Without Faux Pas

In international business, first impressions are often the only chance professionals have to impress a business contact. When it comes to avoiding a faux pas, building trust, and creating business opportunities with a foreign partner, knowledge of customs and cultural differences concerning business attire, facial expressions, body language, and eye contact can be what makes or breaks a deal. Our speakers will discuss how business practices, such as negotiations, greetings, and meetings, differ between cultures and companies through their own personal experiences of having done business around the world.
