What I Say is Not What I Mean: Stop & Think!

Expat Women linked to an amusing but interesting article on the Kwintessential website about the importance of being aware of cultural differences.

Whether for business or pleasure, being abroad requires a little knowledge of local ways - ignorance could have costly consequences as many have found out (including George Bush).
Check out an article on the management culture in the Netherlands for some useful insight and pointers to doing business/working with the Dutch.

I would love to hear from anyone who has personal examples of cross cultural blunders!
