Do you want to know the dining, gift-giving and dress etiquette for India, the Middle East, China, South America? From knowing how to conduct yourself in a Japanese Tea Ceremony, to maintaining your ‘Bella Figura’ in Italy, and surviving a Russian toasting marathon, discover the confidence that comes from being culture savvy, wherever you are in the world! Here are what others have had to say about ‘Culture Savvy’: “At last we can cross continents, confident in the knowledge of how not to offend local sensibilities!
