    Egalitarianism in Danish Society

• Denmark is an egalitarian society.


• Interestingly this is reflected in their language,
      which employs gender-neutral words.


•Most Danes are modest about their own accomplishments
                         and
  are more concerned about the group than their own
                      individual
                        needs.
            Meeting Etiquette


• Greetings are casual, with a firm handshake, direct eye
                  contact, and a smile.

•Shake hands and say good-bye individually when arriving or
                        departing.

• Shake hands with women first.


• Danes tend to introduce themselves with their first name.
       Business Negotiation

• Send an agenda before the meeting and work from it without
                          deviation.

• Decisions are made after consulting with everyone involved.

• Presentations should be well-organized and factual, use
   facts, figures, and charts to back up statements and
                        conclusions.
• Communicate directly and maintain eye contact.


• There will be a minimal amount of small talk, Danes prefer
                   to get down to business.
