Cross Cultural Issues: Business communication & styles comparison between Japan and Europe

Trade - Webinars
Date: Tuesday, 19 March 2019

Venue: Webinar

Are there distinctive styles of Japanese business communication?

Specifically, the webinar focuses on styles of business communication commonly used by managers in Japan, comparing these styles of communication to those commonly used by managers across Europe. The term ‘style’ comes from a Latin word stilus, meaning a ‘writing instrument’ or ‘pen’. Just as individuals vary in terms of their ‘style’ of handwriting, so individual managers in Europe and in Japan vary in terms of their preferred ‘styles’ of business communication. As with handwriting, these individual styles vary according to language, culture and communication purpose (audience). By emphasising both distinctive features of and similarities in styles of business communication commonly used in Japan and across Europe, this webinar gives practical examples and ‘plain spoken’ advice to managers in EU companies who wish to communicate effectively and develop productive relationships with Japanese business people and consumers. 

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to do business in Japan and wishing to learn more about the difference in communication styles between Japan and Europe.
