Global Business & Dining Etiquette

 Global Business & Dining Etiquette

In a melting pot global business society where the chances of conflict, misinterpretation and faux pas can be quite high, interacting professionally with foreign business partners is a skill that is crucial to all business executives and must be honed. As businesses expand internationally, we need to ensure that cultural differences continue to be valued and respected and that we are socially-prepared for what we may experience as a ‘culture-shock’. Further,theability to communicate effectively, negotiate and influence people from various cultures is vital to the long-term competitive success of global corporations.

Objectives & Methodology

This program equips participants with the knowledge on cross-cultural (up to three specific countries will be focused on during any one workshop) etiquette in a business context so that values and cultures are respected and business partnerships may be effectively formed and embedded to last a lifetime. Through interactive lectures, role plays, discussions and presentations, participants will be able to apply these unique skills almost immediately.
