Iceland Cultural Training

Doing business in Iceland 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 start a business in Iceland? 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 Iceland

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.

Business etiquette in Iceland is similar to the UK. Punctuality is important and you are expected to dress formally. Icelandic people have a tendency to be direct and concise, so meetings are likely to be similar. Icelandic people also place an importance on honesty, so if you are setting up a business on the island, it is important not to make promises you cant keep. It is also advisable to refer to time in the 24-hour format, to avoid confusion. Icelandic people are also liberal and permissive and generally believe in equality, especially between the sexes.
