Critical Issues in Cross-Cultural Communications

“Critical Issues in Cross-Cultural Communications” – which was held on Monday, November 27th, 6-9 PM, at the offices of Pearl Cohen Zedek Latzer Baratz and organized by Israel Startup network.

Culturally-correct or incorrect communications often determine a startup’s gaining or losing important opportunities. This event provided the audience with essential information regarding the delivery of messages in a culturally-correct manner. Topics that were discussed included oral, written and body-language communications across the cultural divide – including how to improve one’s chances of success and avoid blunders that may be irreversible. My presentation focused on U.S. business culture and on the dangers of “cultures of similarity” ie. Israeli and U.S. culture.
