International Cultural Differences and Guidelines - Website

I just ran across an excellent website ( that lists information on a range of countries and cultural norms for each, including (using Australia as an example):

Australia: About Australia About Australia
Australia: Appointment Alert! Making appointments
Australia: Business Dress Guidelines for business dress
Australia: Conversation Welcome topics of conversation
Australia: First Name or Title? Addressing others with respect
Australia: Gift Giving Selecting and presenting an appropriate business gift
Australia: Let's Make a Deal! What you should know before negotiating
Australia: Prosperous Entertaining Entertaining for business success
Australia: Public Behaviour Acceptable public conduct

Well worth exploring before your next international trip…
