Business Etiquette

Good manners that facilitate business by allowing one to be taken seriously and to prevent unintended offense. For example, it is customary in many areas for a man to wear a suit to business meetings; a person who does not follow this etiquette is often thought to be less likely to land a contract with a client. Business etiquette varies from country to country and even region to region. For this reason, it is helpful to investigate the etiquette of various areas before traveling to those areas.
