You are back from England. How is your business trip?
The company should have sent an older representative to England.
En, in English business culture older people arc respected and better able to assume the air of authority.
My trip is fruitful thanks to our long-term relationships.
Yes. English businesspeople value precedent in decision making.
But once they decide to do business with you they can be blunt, direct and will not hesitate to speak their minds.
That is because they tend to emphasize short-term results rather than long-range objectives.
I find they are humorous.
Yes, humor is often an important part of business discussions in England. They even use humor to show disagreement.
They don’t like hard sell and refuse denigrating other company's products.
What else made a deep impression on you?
In England, a visitor should know when to stop talking and when to leave.
That’s because the British consider it impolite to interrupt a visitor even after all business has been done.
