This event has been temporarily postponed, please check back soon for a rescheduling announcement.
The current global competitive business environment dictates thorough understanding of a prospect’s norms and behavioral patterns in order to establish successful commercial ties with them. In the Middle East and many other regions of the world, personal relationships are emphasized in order to conclude successful business transactions. It is therefore critical to develop full understanding of your customer’s cultural and historic profile in order to avoid any potential downfalls. Join us as Sebastian Ehab Fattal decodes many of the misperceptions surrounding the Middle East in terms of culture and history. This workshop will closely examine Turkey as a case study due to its importance for Canadian import and export firms.

Non-Attendance to Events: The Hanlon Centre often provides its events free of charge, while incurring associated operating costs and expenses, to ensure students have access to international business education and experiential learning opportunities. In the case of an event offered by a “third party” government/corporate partner, the Hanlon Centre might purchase event tickets to give away as complimentary to interested students. Sometimes seating can be limited, and a student wait list can result. If you are unable to attend this event, you MUST give ample notice to the Hanlon Centre so the opportunity may be presented to another student. Where the Hanlon Centre purchased and provided complimentary tickets, you might be charged the full price of the ticket as a “no-show” or failure to provide ample cancellation notice. Seat transfer to an unregistered guest without authorization from the Hanlon Centre is not allowed.
