About the event

Central and Eastern Europe is a region that encompasses many different cultures, ethnicities, languages, and histories...

Grouping all of these countries under a single designation can sometimes be problematic. It is also important to note that the countries broadly classified as being a part of Central and Eastern Europe have one thing in common: they were all behind the Iron Curtain before its fall and therefore have experienced different economic growth from that of Western Europe.

This half day training will help you to improve your communication with partners in the region. Knowing your way around the dos and dont’s in business culture will save you from uncomfortable miscommunications.

The training will cover:

  • business cultures: religion, language, values, beliefs and customs
  • different business and economic environments
  • business communication and negotiation styles
  • challenges and solutions for doing business in individual markets
  • understanding and overcoming common trade barriers / pitfalls
  • market entry and protecting your business
  • ease of doing business
  • e-commerce strategy

Who is this workshop for?

This event is funded by West Midlands Chambers of Commerce’s ERDF SME International Growth Project. In order to attend you must be an SME registered within the West Midlands.
