International Business Etiquette

Enhance your company's corporate image
Give your Chinese team the keys to feel more confident in an international environment

To your key audiences, your employees are your organisation. It is the reason why the image they project is so important.

Manners have a direct impact on one's image. Each culture has its own social and business codes, so in today's increasingly global society, the chances of saying or doing the wrong thing are greater than ever before, as well as the chances of misunderstanding someone else's behaviour.

After this training session, participants won't be embarrassed any more by not knowing how to act in international situations.
