Click on this link and read the blog about cultural differences in the business world.

On that SGI page, after you have read the blog, go to the bottom of the page and answer ONE of the ‘Questions for Comments Section’ (minimum 30 words). Do NOT write your answer on this page.

With your comment, write your first name AND the first letter of your surname (e.g. Haritz G)

You must write an individual answer – not in groups.
