Cultural Training in Hong Kong

Doing business in Hong Kong 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 to do business in Hong Kong? 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 Hong Kong

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.
Etiquette in Hong Kong is very important and the concept of loosing face is integral to business when expanding a business. It is therefore important not to criticize, contradict or appear insincere publically, as this will result in loosing face, both for yourself and the recipient. There are other idiosyncrasies, such as the gift of clocks, handkerchiefs and straw sandals being viewed as inappropriate because of the objects association with death.
