This is also the case when departing. It is perfectly acceptable to shake hands with women. When doing business there you will notice people rise when seated to greet people. The expression heij (pronounced hi) is used when greeting and departing. When doing business in Denmark, be aware of others personal space and try not to be too tactile.Lico Reis Consultoria & Línguas Doing Business - Dress Etiquette Doing Business Abroad When doing business in Denmark, try and dress in a polished yet unassuming way. Despite a high standard of living, ostentation is frowned upon. Men should wear suits with white shirts, ties and polished shoes. Women should wear stylish yet modestly cut suits. Doing Business - Meetings and Negotiations If you are planning on doing business in Denmark then make an appointment at least two weeks in advance. Punctuality is important in Denmark. It is expected for all business and social engagements. You will notice when doing business in Denmark that the Danes are reasonably relaxed, informal and tolerant yet expect professional standards of behaviour. The Danes are very direct and frank communicators which is perceived in Denmark as a sign of sincerity and honesty. If you are doing business in Denmark which involves negotiations, come well prepared. The Danes are meticulous when it comes to analysing information and proposals. Bring a wealth of information in written form for your Danish counterpart to examine. Presentations should be factual and well- organised. Having the gift of the gab will get you nowhere if it is not supported by logical, rational and proven evidence.
