Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands
Continuing the focus on international resources, I thought this would be a good month to highlight Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands (KBS), a database of dos and don’ts around the world.
Searchable by country, KBS provides you with a look at the country’s history, government, key phrases, views, protocol, business etiquette, and more. If you need to know what’s expected of you if hosting a dinner party or what you can expect during a deal negotiation, this will be a useful source for you. In addition to business settings, you will also learn about cultural norms and safety tips thus giving you a better insight on why dinner starts after 9pm or when to be wary of volcanoes. This is an entertaining and informative resource whether you’re traveling to Europe this summer or staying home.
