5 Cultural Differences between US and VIETNAM | Business CULTURE SHOCK


Cultural difference in business | Valerie Hoeks | TEDxHaarlem

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. One of the elements of the cultural difference between Europe and China is the importance that is given to relationships. In the West you would assume the importance to be the same, but there is a significant distinction. In China connections with the right people help you to get things done, to survive and to succeed.

Whereas in the West content is predominant, in China the way people interact with each other strongly influences the working environment. 'Face' and long-term effects are taken into consideration.

Valérie Hoeks (1982) studied Sinology at the Leiden University and has been active in China for over a decade as a traveller, a student and later as an entrepreneur. As soon as she set foot on Chinese soil she knew she would come back many times.

In 2010 Valérie co-founded China Inroads in collaboration with with her Dutch and Chinese business partner. China Inroads provides a strong foothold for innovative companies that want to expand their business to the Chinese market.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Korea vs. America, 6 Culture Differences! (First time in the U.S...)

Hi, my lovely MINJIONS~!

This is a video about cultural differences that I felt when I traveled to the U.S. last month.
It was my first time in America, so as a Korean girl who has lived only in Korea and has been used to only Korean culture for 27 years, American cultures seemed new and exotic. But I also felt that some of them were weird, shocking and surprising.

So I'd like to share my story. I hope you guys know that all the things that I mentioned in this video were based on my personal experience. So they might be different from real fact.

Then, enjoy!

Love you:)

Culture Shock + Compassion = Community | Ibrahima Sow | TEDxYearlingRoad

Coming to the United States at a young age, Ibrahima Sow endured a number of experiences that qualified as culture shock. Navigating his way in this new world, he met each challenge with heart and courage all the while determined to maintain his identity. What he learned is something that we can all benefit from; when culture shock is met with compassion, it can create a vibrant and strong community.

Ibrahima Sow is an immigrant from Senegal, West Africa. Coming to the United States at age 8, Ibrahima went through Columbus City Schools and became a first-generation college graduate from The Ohio State University. Being a local advocate for resource accessibility and opportunity for our refugee and immigrant neighbors, he became the first foreign born to make a general election during the Columbus City Council race in 2015. After the ultimate loss, he has remained active, presently leading the New Citizens Advocacy Coalition and engaged in awareness campaigns for neighbors to embrace our diversity through cultural dialogue in all neighborhoods.
