Cultural Training in Australia

Doing business in Australia isn't like going on holiday: don't expect to get by with knowledge of a few words, and don't assume business is conducted in the same way universally.

But how can you properly prepare? There are many cultural training companies and schools which can help you. They offer cross-cultural grounding, bridging the translatory and protocolic gaps between nations and people.

Providing guidance in all areas of business and sociality, these cultural training companies are experts when it comes to negotiation training; management training; and diversity training. All training, of course, can be country-specific.

Tutorials can take many forms, so investigate which will be right for you and, if necessary, your employees.

Business Etiquette in Australia

The formalities and informalities; the how d'you dos and how d'you don'ts. Etiquette is one of the foundations of modern civilisation, and business is no exception. A business blunder, in some countries, could mean the difference between a deal and disrepute. Again, its all about culture if not adopting, at least recognising and respecting the traditions and protocols of a people.

Generally, doing business in Australia is simple for UK exporters when compared with other foreign markets. Culture, language, and business practices are remarkably common. However, subtle cultural differences do exist that can either invigorate or undermine a business relationship. In dealings, take your time to confirm that their perceptions about roles and expectations are consistent with those of their counterparts.

Timely delivery of goods, including spare parts, is expected.

Australians are not very formal so greetings are casual and relaxed: a handshake and smile suffices. Aussies prefer to use first names, even at the initial meeting

Australias business etiquette remains similar to that of the UK. Australians pay attention to advance planning, promptness, and follow-up, and are generally direct in their business dealings. They typically exchange business cards for information purposes, but without any special ceremony.

Lunches and breakfast meetings are common, and Australians do not typically schedule business functions on weekends. Business attire is the norm for the cities, with country areas being slightly more informal.
