We all know that trust, networking and personal relations are important in Japan, but it is not so much appreciated that these three facets of business life are dramatically more important to Japanese companies. The three words, while superficially translatable into European languages, have meanings and connotations that are highly culture-specific. In this webinar we will unravel these latent elements which are especially useful to know, and introduce two short – but illuminating - case studies with a particular emphasis on trust. Then we will present techniques for enhancing competences for creating and maintaining trust-based relationships with companies that operate in (arguably) the most networked society in the world.
The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking a fresh perspective on trust, networking and relationship building.
