Webinar | Why Manners Matter: A Discussion on the Lack of International Etiquette
Sponsored by VisitLEX

When: Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2016, at 2 p.m. EDT

As global business continues to expand, understanding the cultural dynamics of a country can be helpful in explaining why people act the way they do and the appropriate way to act while in another country or working with individuals from other countries.

Etiquette is all about human social behavior. Each country has a “code of behavior” that covers right and wrong and improper and respectful ways to act and behave. Passed down by generations, this code is based on basic cultural values and beliefs. Respecting and acknowledging these cultural customs can advance individual business success.

This session reviews proper behavior in everyday situations, from dining and gift giving to basic manners and daily cultural taboos. Resource tools will be available.

Learning Objectives

1. Understand the importance of learning about other cultures and their “code of behavior.”
2. Position yourself for greater success in international business meetings by ensuring a proper first impression.
3. Gain resources for further research and reference tools when working with other cultures.
