Overview

Be IN THE KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Doing business across borders is very different from doing business across town–subtle and not-so-subtle differences in attitudes and etiquette play a big role.

Did you know?
• Flowers are so inexpensive and plentiful in Mexico & Central America that they’re considered to be too cheap to give as a gift.
• Be patient, and don’t rush into discussing business. You can ruin a business deal if you don’t spend time on small talk.
• A lot of Mexicans and Central Americans hate to deliver bad news; they are more likely to tell you what you want to hear

In the Know in Mexico & Central America helps you:
• Fit right in by understanding local manners, etiquette, and behaviors
• Navigate through everyday life with tips for the whole family
• Get an insider’s perspective on the social and business environment

Editorial Reviews

bn.com
Published in cooperation with Terra Cognita, a company whose services prepare international businesspeople for life abroad, In the Know gives the kind of inside information expats will find invaluable. Avoid common pitfalls and learn how to work and socialize gracefully abroad by understanding not only cultural differences but also how each culture views foreigners -- for example, in many countries a female expat may be seen first and foremost as American, Canadian, or British and so will be treated differently from local women.
