Why are  we  here?  


Cultural Differences   “Earliest  record  da=ng  back  to  a  ruler  called   Fu  Si”  (Anon,  2008,  Introduc=on).       “Today  the     popula=on  of  China  is   1.34  billion.”     (Lambert,  2010,  Conclusion).  


Cultural Differences   China  is  a  ‘High  Context’  Society    

High Context    -­‐  Unspoken  informa=on,  large   importance  on  rela=onships,  loyalty    and  less   emphasis  on  rules/structure.     Low  Context  -­‐    Informa=on  exchanged  through  the   message  itself,  less  vague,  short-­‐term  rela=onships,   follow  rules/structure  closely  and  are  task   orientated.

Posture


How will  this  be  implemented  in  the   Workshop   First  Role  Play  –  to  do  with  business   cards  of  gi7s  

Second role  play  –  learn  to   pick  up  Chinese  gestures  and   how  to  show  1  –  10    


Chinese culture  shows  that  they  stand  closer  in  business  so  a   role  play  incorpora=ng  standing  close  together  talking  will  be   incorporated  so  everybody  feels  comfortable.
