North America

There are many similarities between Canada and the United States of America, but also many differences: as part of Canada is French-speaking, that alone makes for big cultural differences. Mexico, the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, classed as part of North America, also shares many cultural similarities with the USA but also has significant differences. Generally speaking, in the USA:

  • Time is money, so punctuality is important.
  • Social media usage is widespread so connections made, for example, on LinkedIn, are worth cultivating (if you don't have the social media accounts it is worth opening them.)
  • Money is very important - Americans get much less holiday than most other countries and often don't take the holiday they do get as this is considered wasted opportunity.
  • Political correctness can make the language seem convoluted and strained but it is vital to avoid causing offence or your business relationships will really suffer.
  • Informality is important: first names are often used from first meeting and suits are not always necessary.
