I can't tell a thing, I don't conduct business, I'm retired, and I was back office personnel back when I worked.
Fairy Nuff. I do some business with French people, and they do sometimes come across as somewhat arrogant.
:ask: Possible? :ask:
Great lunches though. That is why the Dutch are not popular. We dont do lunches and only at best sandwiches and coffee/tea but we will have four meetings a day. The Belg only manage one.

oh, business meetings, I didn't get that, I thought you spoke about meals taken as groups. Depending on the time needed, French businessmen can certainly cram 4 meetings a day, not counting business lunches and dinners.

They can fuck off too. Four meetings a day? You're crazy.

I used to try to limit it two two maximum. Didn’t always succeed. ‘Standing’ meetings were trialed briefly. Effective in keeping them short but not at all popular!

We had those as well. Never worked. We had breakfast ones with only coffee. We did 99% of our work for local and national governments. Lunch was often a "sandwich dashboard" bought at a motorway petrol station. We dont have service areas a la UK.

Breakfast with only coffee... that's torture, we need the meat products and cheese and bread.

Well some project managers had other thoughts on the matter.

Meetings? Bah Humbug!

They were always trying to get me to teach in some new-fangled way, instead of the pedagogical perfection that was Mr C in action... :tea:

"We are your largest partner. You're our largest partner. A lot of people don't know that," Mr. Trump said to May as the meeting began, noting that he believed there was a "great opportunity to enlarge that, in light of what's happening."

Mr. Trump's declaration got the facts ironically wrong, however. The U.S.'s biggest trading partner is the European Union collectively, not Great Britain on its own, which is only the second largest economy in the trading bloc behind Germany.
