Business in America - A Business Etiquette Workshop

Discover the secrets of doing business in the United States, where co-operation, teamwork and networking play an important part in any type of business. The fittest do not survive by merely outrunning their rivals; they win by finding ways to collaborate in an intercultural environment.

Reserve your spot at our EventBrite page! Space is limited!


Join Ulla Buchner-Howard, the president and owner of UBH International as well as an adjunct professor at New York University. As our speaker, Ulla will share the business secrets she discovered when working as an international for US based global companies, including Mercedes/Daimler-Benz.

Some of the topics covered will include the following:

· Working in the US - What are the key differences?

o What to do, what to avoid

o Formal versus informal cultures

· Culture and cross-cultural awareness

· Managing communication in a virtual and international environment: the power of language – and the ‘hidden’ language

· Cross-cultural communication issues as part of the management role

· Result oriented versus relationship oriented cultures

· Working in international projects: is there an intercultural project approach?

· Delegation and motivation in international team settings

· Managing conflicts and intercultural taboos

· Structural characteristics of different cultures

o How different cultures handle topics like time, leadership, negotiations, and ethics


This interactive workshop will give you useful tools to apply immediately and will sharpen your skills of doing business in the US while integrating cross-cultural sensitivity. The 2 1/2 hour workshop will leave you better prepared to work in the United States and better understand your professional surroundings.
