Suits are a must when
conducting business in well dressed Melbourne and all appointments
should be arranged in advance.
Like much of Melbourne life, business is generally conducted
over coffee. Drinks at a stylish bar or breakfast
meetings are also favored, although long business lunches are a
thing of the past.
Australian business people are
very approachable, quite informal and quick to use 1st names. Academic
or professional titles do not impress them, nor do over zealous
sales presentations. Business cards are used.
business hours are Monday to Friday,
from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm, however many executives work longer hours.
If invited to someone’s home, a bottle of wine as a gift will
almost always be acceptable.
