British Etiquette and Customs Meeting and Greeting: The handshake is the common form of greeting. The British might seem a little stiff and formal at first. Avoid prolonged eye contact as it makes people feel uncomfortable.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

There is still some protocol to follow when introducing people in a business or more formal social situation. Introduce a younger person to an older person. Introduce a person of lower status to a person of higher status. When two people are of similar age And rank, introduce the one you know better to the other person.

Gift Giving Etiquette: The British exchange gifts between family members and close friends for birthdays and Christmas. The gift need not be expensive, but it should usually demonstrate an attempt to find something that related to the recipient’s interests .

PowerPoint Presentation: 

If invited to someone's home, it is normal to take along a box of good chocolates, a good bottle of wine or flowers . Gifts are opened when received.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Dining Etiquette: Unlike many European cultures, the British. Enjoy entertaining in people their homes. Although the British value punctuality you may arrive 10-15 minutes later than invited to dinner. However, if going to a restaurant be on time.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Table manners are Continental, i.e. the fork is held in the left hand and the knife in the right while eating. The fork is held tines down so food is scooped on to the back of the fork. This is a skill that takes time to master

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Remain standing until invited to sit down. You may be shown to a particular seat. Do not rest your elbows on the table. If you have not finished eating, cross your knife and fork on your plate with the fork over the knife. Indicate you have finished eating by laying your knife and fork parallel across the right side of your plate.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Toasts are given at formal meals. When in a pub, it is common practice to pay for a round of drinks for everyone in your group. If invited to a meal at a restaurant, the person extending the invitation usually pays. Do not argue about the check; simply reciprocate at a later time.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Communication Style The British The British have an interesting mix of communication styles encompassing both understatement and direct communication

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Building Relationships Most British look for long-term relationships with people they do business with and will be cautious if you appear to be going after a quick deal.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Business Meetings Punctuality is important in business situations. In most cases, the people you are meeting will be on time. Call if you will be even 5 minutes later than agreed . If you are kept waiting a few minutes, do not make an issue of it

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Scots are extremely punctual. Likewise, if you know that you will be late it is a good idea to telephone and offer your apologies. How meetings are conducted is often determined by the composition of people attending: If everyone is at the same level, there is generally a free flow of ideas and opinions. If there is a senior ranking person in the room, that person will do most of the speaking.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

In general, meetings will be rather formal: Meetings always have a clearly defined purpose, which may include an agenda. There will be a brief amount of small talk before getting down to the business at hand. If you make a presentation, avoid making exaggerated claims. Make certain your presentation and any materials provided appear professional and well thought out.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Be prepared to back up your claims with facts and figures. The British rely on facts, rather than emotions, to make decisions. Maintain eye contact and a few feet of personal space. After a meeting, send a letter summarizing what was decided and the next steps to be taken .

PowerPoint Presentation: 

A Multicultural Society: Formerly a very homogenous society, since World War II, Britain has become increasingly diverse as it has accommodated large immigrant populations, particularly from its former colonies such as India, Pakistan and the West Indies.

Superstitions: 

Superstitions Good Luck: Lucky to meet a black cat Lucky to touch wood Lucky to find a clover plant with four leaves.

PowerPoint Presentation:

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Bad Luck: Unlucky to walk underneath a ladder Seven years bad luck to break a mirror Unlucky to see one magpie, lucky to see two, etc. Unlucky to spill salt. If you do, you must throw it over your shoulder to counteract the bad luck Unlucky to open an umbrella in doors.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The number thirteen is unlucky Friday the thirteenth is a double unlucky day because Jesus was crucified on a Friday. Unlucky to put new shoes on the table Unlucky to pass someone on the stairs

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Behavior Always be punctual in England. Arriving a few minutes early for safety is acceptable. Decision-making is slower in England than in the United States; therefore it is unwise to rush the English into making a decision. A simple handshake is the standard greeting (for both men and women) for business occasions and for visiting a home.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Eye contact is seldom kept during British conversations. Privacy is very important to the English. Therefore asking personal questions or intensely staring at another person should be avoided.
