Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands: Doing Business Around the World

You're on your way to China, Russia, Malaysia, Brazil, India or virtually any exotic locale. Do you kiss, bow or shake hands? Do you address prospects by their first name, last name or just their title? Should you expect tough negotiations, or will they never say "no!"? Do they expect a gift, or would it be considered graft?

Spring Meeting delegates are encouraged to join in an open discussion with Terri Morrison, author of several best-selling books on international business customs. Discuss how to smooth over cultural barriers and form lasting client and professional relationships. Come and share your experiences, tell stories, ask questions or simply listen as panel members and the audience reflect on a spectrum of intercultural communications topics -- from negotiating styles, advertising taboos, plagiarism, business protocol, appropriate attire, dining etiquette, entertainment, gestures and gift-giving around the world.
