Melbourne business tips.
Beyond using native Melburnian translators, there remains a breadth of information that can help you thrive in the Australian business world. Here are a few tips that will aid you in everything from casual conversation to large presentations.
While confidence is respected, being boastful about your achievements, education, or wealth should be completely avoided. Australians don’t appreciate any form of bragging. Being confident, yet humble, is the perfect balance to aim for.
Be prepared for enthusiastic conversations and debates among any Australians you’re working with. Aussies are enthusiastic in both speech and tone, matching this energy will help you communicate your thoughts to an Australian audience.
Australian business practices tend to be collaborative. This means that you should expect decision making processes to be slower, and that you should always be respectful of all employees you’re in communication with, no matter their position relative to yours.
Respect for Australia
Respect for Australia as a country is key to developing healthy relationships. While Australians are typically quite open to controversial discussions, any mocking or teasing of Australia is not worth the potential offence.
Australian humour tends to be cynical and teasing, all while being jovial and good-natured. While some of the humour may get lost in translation, it’s important to understand that it’s generally not meant to be mocking.
