Presenting across cultures by Andra Riemhofer

Presenting across cultures Germany

You wish to impress a German audience? Considering the style of presentation, I am hesitant to tell you what the best possible solution is; I honestly doubt there is one best way. However, I would suggest that a good approach is to keep in mind the core values and practices introduced in my book Doing Business in Germany (such as Germans’ task-orientation, sticking to an agenda and timeline, not getting too emotional, etc.) while, at the same time, not denying yourself. Maybe your way of mixing facts and figures with a good storyline and your unique way of talking to an audience will be perceived as exceptionally refreshing and engaging. Keeping my fingers crossed!
