Business-culture in France

For a successful business in France, it is vital to familiarize yourself with some features of the business culture of this country. Let’s highlight the main points:

  • During business meetings and contacts with business partners, it is necessary to keep a distance and observe formalities. For example, when addressing a person, especially when meeting someone who holds a managerial position, you must state your first and last name and be sure to use the words Monsieur or Madame.
  • Always carry business cards with you, with information in both English and French. A business suit should be the main part of the wardrobe regardless of the day of the week. Outside, you need to look neat, no three-day-old stubble or bright make-up.
  • Schedule business meetings in advance and learn the rules of etiquette at the dinner table. Being late for 10-15 minutes is considered the norm. If the meeting takes place at a business partner’s home, it is advisable to send flowers to the hostess in advance, and it is better to exclude wine as a gift. If it is not an expensive elite drink.
