So you're about to head to Australia for a few days of meetings. But you realize: you have no idea what Australia is like. [Sale: 50% off until August 27! If you're on the fence, buy sooner rather than later--or drop us a note, we're happy to answer questions.] Sure, you know where you're staying. Maybe you've got a guidebook that describes places to visit if you manage to scrape together a few hours of sightseeing. But what's Australia really like for doing business? More practically:- How should you greet your business partners? - If you're invited to someone's house, what sort of gift should you bring?- What color wrapping paper should you use? Certain funeral-related colors should be avoided, of course. - Are there any special considerations for female travelers? - Perhaps most importantly: if you order the pavlova, what on Earth is that going to look like? (hint: it's a dessert!) Australia: Business Traveler's Passport is designed specifically for businesspeople. It contains a couple hundred pages of information on Australia, focusing on areas of particular concern to the business traveler. While it does contain a small amount of information on hotels and sightseeing opportunities, these sections are intentionally light--this is not a travel guide! Seriously! Instead, it has entire sections of information on: * Australia Basics: A brief history of Australia, with some background and historical highlights.* Country Facts: Demographics and other statistical data, with an offline map of the country.* Doing Business: Greetings & courtesies, meeting protocol, business attire, business entertaining, etc.* Women: As travelers, are there any special considerations in Australia? As a businesswoman, are any extra measures needed? How are australian women treated in their own country?* Money: What does the money look like? How much should different service people be tipped...if at all?* Travel: Visa info, departure formalities, electrical system, etc.* Safety: Emergency numbers, notes on street crime, hospital locations, health & medical care.* Points of Interest: A few interesting museums and cultural sites, in case there's time after the meetings.* City View: Background on Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, and Perth, with a handful of hotel descriptions.* Telephone System: The subtleties of dialing to & from Australia.* Life Cycle: From birth to marriage to old age, what's life like?* Holidays and Festivals: Solid background on the popular holidays and festivals.* Religion: Info on Australia's religious climate.* Superstitions and Folklore: Common superstitions, along with australian stereotypes.* Food and Recipes: Descriptions of common australian foods, along with recipes for a dozen dishes, including vegemite on toast, meat pies, scotch broth, brawn, and the aforementioned pavlova.* Embassies: Embassy locations and contact info for 100+ countries. All content is 100% available offline without a network connection.
