Unveiling Cultural Biases: Nordic & Baltic Countries

About the session

When the Eurotradus guys hit the streets of Tallinn, we will dive headfirst into the matters of cultural biases surrounding the Nordic and Baltic countries. This will be an electrifying presentation that will challenge your beliefs and take you on a wild ride.

Prepare to question everything as we scrutinize the jokes circulating about neighbors: what anecdotes do Swedes tell about Norwegians or Lithuanians about Estonians? Are these stories rooted in reality, or are they just biased tales with no connection to the truth?

Sometimes these stereotypes act as stumbling blocks for successful business endeavors. Unraveling these cultural intricacies is crucial for fruitful professional communication and collaboration.

We are ready to present our (mis)conceptional findings that will shatter clichés about the Nordic and Baltic folks. Get ready to challenge the status quo, dissect neighborly jokes, and separate fact from fiction.

This presentation is not your run-of-the-mill snooze fest – it’s interactive, edgy, and provocative. You’ll have the chance to vote in live polls, share narratives, and even crack your own jokes. Get ready for an experience that’ll leave you with valuable insights and the ability to forge partnerships like a pro!
