Doing business in the Nordics and Switzerland

CULTURAL DIFFERENCES WHEN DOING BUSINESS IN THE NORDICS AND SWITZERLAND

It is said that Scandinavians are so alike, and quite like the Swiss. This may be true to some extent, but one who has travelled in the Nordic countries (not Scandinavia!) may have noted differences in behaviour; not reaching the right person, never receiving an answer to an initial e-mail, getting stuck in endless meetings or having to negotiate over and over again, though a contract is in place.

Doing business in the Nordics and Switzerland

In fact, there are quite some differences between the Northerners themselves and between them and the Swiss. Understanding these differences may help you when establishing a company in Zug or aiming for your first deal in Norway.

Switzerland Global Enterprise in partnership with the Nordic Chambers of Commerce are arranging a seminar on differences in business culture in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.
