Funny HSBC Video: Dinner invitation in China
Have you ever been invited out for dinner in China?
This funny commercial shows you how cultures can collide, even with the very best intentions!
For example, British people clear up their plates to demonstrate appreciation for the food. However, in a Chinese’s person’s eyes, eating all of your food demonstrates that you are still hungry, and that you challenge your host’s generosity.
Do you see how a harmless dinner can potentially lead to offence and to a dangerous power game in your business interactions?
Never underestimate the importance of local knowledge!
