Presented by the Professionals for Diversity and Inclusion Group
IECA: Houston PDIG Panel and Networking Event
Navigating Nuances in International Credit and Business
Join the IECA's Professionals for Diversity and Inclusion Group (PDIG) for an informative panel discussion on nuances in international credit and business, followed by a networking event at Part & Parcel in Houston's The Whitehall Hotel!
Panel Discussion Description:
In the ever-expanding global economy, businesses are exposed to different cultures and business practices. Often, business deals are lost because the parties involved did not take the time to learn about each other’s cultures prior to engaging. Aspects of the discussion will include language, customs and even gestures – for example, a simple ‘yes’ can have different meanings or intent. The panel will highlight aspects to consider and strategies that can make a difference between business success and failure.
