Key topics:














  1. Confirm the influences of culture in negotiation.

  3. Cultural considerations to factor in.

1 flip chart and a marker. Room arranged such that the audience can be grouped into four teams (at least two people/team). Ideally, there would be 3-10 per team. Once we pass about 12/team, I’d plan to put 6-8/team and fishbowl the rest.
