Business meetings are usually formal, but business lunches can be held in informal locations, such as a pub. Lengthy eye contact can be considered rude in England while here in the US it is taken as a sign of confidence and conviction. Finally, personal questions are not asked, as privacy is very important. It can be difficult to assimilate to new cultures, but it is important to respect the individuals that one does business with.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
