Closing A Deal In Any Culture: Opportunities And Challenges Of Doing Business Globally

February 13 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-5

Join David Briel, Rivka Riven Kreitman, Vered Nohi, and Karina Sotnik to learn and to share experiences of doing business in different cultures. Cultural differences can influence business negotiations in significant and often unexpected ways, as many have learned, sometimes too late. In some cases, it’s a matter of ignorance or blatant disrespect, as with the American salesman who took a coveted business card from his Asian client and put it in his trouser’s back pocket. But the differences can be much more subtle, arising from deep-seated cultural tendencies that influence how people interact—everything from how companies view the role of the individual versus the group to their attitudes, say, about the importance of time or relationships. Come learn from practitioners who have done business globally in many cultures and counties. There also will be global companies present that are looking to do business in the US.
