So you're about to head to Sweden for a few days of meetings. But you realize: you have no idea what Sweden is like. 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 Sweden 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? - If flowers are OK, what kinds of flowers are appropriate--or inappropriate? - Should you bring an odd number of flowers or an even number? Any numbers to avoid? - Are there any special considerations for female travelers? - Perhaps most importantly: if you order the smrgstrta, what on Earth is that going to look like? (it's a dessert!) Sweden: Business Traveler's Passport is designed specifically for businesspeople. It contains a couple hundred pages of information on Sweden, 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: * Sweden Basics: A brief history of Sweden, 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 Sweden? As a businesswoman, are any extra measures needed? How are Swedish 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, 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 Stockholm, with a handful of hotel descriptions. * Telephone System: The subtleties of dialing from & to Sweden. There's even a section on how to use Swedish pay phones (without needing to read Swedish). * Life Cycle: From birth to marriage to old age, what's life like? * Gift Giving: The subtleties of giving personal or business gifts. * Holidays and Festivals: Solid background on the popular holidays and festivals. * Religion: Info on Sweden's religious climate. * Superstitions and Folklore: Common superstitions, along with Swedish stereotypes. * Food and Recipes: Descriptions of common Swedish foods, along with recipes for a dozen dishes, including kldolmar, vsterbotten pie, kalops, kottbullar, and lutefisk. * Terms Dictionary: Over 100 words & phrases translated into Swedish. * Embassies and Consulates: Embassy locations and contact info for 100+ countries. All content is 100% available without a network connection.
