How Well Do You Know Your International Phone Etiquette?

Meeting professionals who plan events for international audiences will invariably find themselves having multiple phone conversations with their planning partners overseas. This infographic offers some tips on how to keep from unintentionally putting across the wrong message.

The meetings and events business is increasingly becoming a global one as businesses and associations spread far beyond their country of origin. According to the 2016 Wells Fargo International Business Indicator, 47 percent of U.S. companies expect profits from international business activity to increase this year, and 87 percent agree that international expansion is needed for long-term growth. But planning a meeting overseas can include many challenges, and it's vital to have a local partner you can depend on—and communicate clearly with. Tollfreeforwarding.com, which authored today's guest post/infographic, spoke to business leaders and etiquette experts to learn how to avoid communication mishaps while conducting business across borders—over the phone, or face-to-face.
