Call in to speak with the host
Whether it's a first time phone call, a face to face meeting to introduce your product at a trade show, or a working lunch or dinner, how you behave will tell your foreign customers a lot about you. Have you taken the time to find out what's appropriate and what's not? Do you respect them and their culture or are you in such a hurry to sell them something that you can't be bothered?
It's good to talk.
