CNN Travel recently posted International business etiquette 101; the article opened with three examples:
In Spain, a business dinner will last well into the early morning hours — many restaurants don’t even open until 9 p.m. and don’t get busy until 10 or 11 p.m.
Australians aren’t impressed by a title or status — they expect your work to speak for itself.
The Japanese aren’t afraid to ask how much money you earn or how large your home is.
And these are only three out of thousands of different customs, business protocols and social mores throughout the world! It is good to remember that a handshake does not always make the deal, sometimes it breaks the deal.
