Bulgaria Cultural Training
Doing business in a foreign country 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.
The formalities and informalities: the how dyou dos and how dyou donts. 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.
When starting up a business in Bulgaria, you need to assume certain etiquettes. When greeting a person, shake hands, use direct eye contact and say the appropriate greeting for the time of day.
Building relationships is essential in Bulgaria, so get acquainted with people before rushing into business. Itll help with both networking and referrals too.
The first meeting is almost always treated as an introduction, so dont expect any serious deals to be made. Deadlines are not always adhered to, with a more relaxed and elongated process given to decisions and meetings.
Formality and professionalism should always be at the forefront of your mind. Casual behaviour isnt particularly accepted in the business arena.
Suits are a must, with no garish colours. For women, keep jewellery to a minimum. If you receive a present, it should be opened instantaneously.
