Hi Mini

sure. The reason is methodological: because the participant who is going to receive the session has a mixed background from those 3 cultures mentioned above.

I´d like the speaker´s cultural background to be similar to the participant´s one, as this will help make relevant cross-cultural comparisons. The main objective of the whole training is to develop intercultural awareness and help the participant overcome possible difficulties arising from cultural differences.

Thanks
Natalia

Oh. Thanks. If it was just a question of languages I could have gotten in touch with a couple of people. But they are not from those countries.
Good luck!
 
I can add if it´s useful that there is an interesting article written by Geert Hofstede about it. He is an influential Dutch expert on the interactions between national cultures and organizational cultures, and is an author of several books including Culture´s Consequences and Cultures and Organizations, Software of the Mind.
"Hofstede demonstrated that there are national and regional cultural groupings that affect the behaviour of organisations, and that are very persistent across time. He has identified five dimensions of culture in his study of national influences: power distance, individualism vs. collectivism, masculinity vs. feminity, uncertainly avoidance and long vs. short term orientation..."

Hi, I would be glad to help too, I qualify on all your requirements except the last 7 and about the first one I have a 6 month visa for the US but have never actually been there will that count? I would be willing to do some training to get more qualified since it appears to be a lucrative and long term position.

What level of honesty is required or allowed? For instance in Argentine agriculture you will find the reported yields declared for tax purposes to be substantially lower than those estimated by the ministry of Agriculture. As, for instance, soya has a 30% sales tax regardless of whether the business is profitable or not, this is a sensible way of smoothing the curve. Some crop may be held in crop and not sold, some may be sold at a discount in the "black", some may just be juggled around accounting dates.

Sadly this is the reality of doing business in Argentina and means that the unprepared would have been wiped out by last years drought, while the prepared reintroduced black money to make up the losses.

Is this what you are looking for?

Hi Miles Lewis

I appreciate your insight on Argentine agriculture.
Reality can be sad sometimes. Unfortunately I am not in a position to discuss this topic, since agro business it is not my area of expertise.
I am looking for a a professional who can share his/her personal experience in a business setting with my expat client, whether it is positive or negative experience.

Thanks
Natalia
