Why Are Malaysians Always Late? - Pete Pereira, Aspire Consulting Group

Pete Pereira sheds light on how we can work effectively across cultures...and explains why Malaysian culture permits lateness.

How to prepare yourself for the global business environment.

Malaysians are relationship orientated as opposed to Western task orientated cultures. For example, business is done on the basis of who you know and not what you know.

Pete talks about the changes in Malaysia: The MTV Generation, seperation of work and leisure, and how it affects us all.
