Improve your export strategy and overseas trade
Learn about business cultures in Indonesia, South Korea, Japan and the Middle East
Cultural understanding is more than knowing how to hand out a business card. It means making an effort to show respect for the ‘unseen rules’. And it is knowing how to manage them to align with your business plan and values.
Business coaching for Asian countries
For many businesses wanting to do business in Asia, it is easy to imagine that as long as you have done your complete market research and have the right product and contracts, your entry should be assured. However, this is often the mistaken view of western businesses. At Bisnis Asia, we work with individuals and groups so that they can put their best foot forward when managing export deals. Learn how to adapt and negotiate challenges caused by cultural differences.
Our world-class export training professionals will equip you with the right skills and mindset to do business in an international market such as Indonesia, South Korea, Japan and the Middle East.
