Although it sometimes seems like the business world is getting standardized, and people are all starting to dress and act the same, don\'t be fooled -- we\'re still a very diverse planet, and local customs have deep roots.
This page has detailed instructions on how to conduct yourself in business settings in dozens of countries. You\'ll find everything from how to dress for a meeting in Italy (formal is best) to body language in Brazil (stand close to the other person and maintain eye contact) to scores of other topics. There\'s also a message board, and a new section with tips for women. This site will help you avoid gaffes that could undermine your business relationships.
