It will focus primarily on the practical elements of working in China and how to communicate and work effectively with the Chinese.

This event will cover:
•    The differences in Chinese and Western cultural values
•    Stereotypes and perceptions of other cultures
•    Developing working relationships with the Chinese
•    The role of hospitality, meetings and etiquette in China 
•    Using international English and interpreters
