Workshop “Let's Network: Different Business Cultures and How to Deal with Them”
Imagine you have a 20-minute break to build a lasting and fruitful business relationship with several designated partners. How to begin a conversation and end it leaving a memorable impression? How to fix the next appointment? The speaker will introduce you to key world business cultures, focus on the potential cultural clashes between them during networking, and suggest safe communicative strategies to avoid a communication breakdown. Together we will determine the critically important stages of a successful networking conversation and train cautious language.
