Business Trips

Helping you to get the best out of a business trip abroad

A business trip overseas can represent a significant investment, both in terms of time and financial outlay – but the returns can be enormous. Often, a great deal (maybe even literally!) might be at stake; you may need to impress potential partners or clients in fresh markets to secure lucrative contracts, or maybe you are expanding your reach to establish a foothold and set up in new territories. Perhaps you have to prepare yourself or your team for a meeting, a conference or an exhibition.

The future of the business meeting is assured. Even though communication technology continues to evolve and change the way we all do business, no IT revolution - however intelligent and intuitive the solutions it develops might be - will ever be able to substitute the fundamental human need to build real and meaningful relationships with colleagues face to face.

Whatever reason you might have for your business trip, being certain you will get exactly the outcome you need from it will require careful planning and preparation. So where do you start? Well, the good news is that you are already half way there. At expatknowhow, we can equip you with all the knowledge, skills and intelligence you need to make your trip a success.

Focusing on your objectives, we will provide precisely the cross-cultural training or multi-cultural training programme you or your staff really need to build confidence, increase understanding and enhance business results.

Need to do business working abroad but not sure how to build a relationship with your opposite number? Worried you might put your foot in it?

You know there are things you absolutely should do – and, perhaps even more importantly, things you absolutely shouldn't.

For instance, did you know that, in China, if you eat everything on your plate it means that you are still hungry and want more? To be polite, you must leave a small amount, to show that you have had enough and are satisfied.

And what about what you should call people when you first meet them? And how should you give or accept a business card?

Let expatknowhow guide you from the first item on your business agenda through to the final debrief when you return home, and make sure that you build profitable relationships with all your business contacts.

If you want to be properly prepared to do business working abroad, we will help you with everything – except packing your suitcase.....

Ensure your trip is successful - contact us today by email or telephone +44 (0)1235 855 236 to start your journey to successful understanding.
