- There are no cultural sensitivities per se, however when conducting business it is worth noting:
- Initial business meetings are formal affairs and business cards should be exchanged.
- Czechs are polite and non-confrontational and sometimes what may appear as hesitancy is a form of politeness or an indirect way of saying no.
- Turning up stupidly early for a meeting is considered a major faux-pas.
