Hosted by Value Learning for Wine Australia, this 90 minute virtual tailored workshop will provide wineries and producers with a strong understanding of the cultural aspects of doing business in Indonesia and equip them with tools to succeed in doing business, building relationships and working with Indonesian customers. With topics including Indonesian history, economy, religion, society, and business culture, this workshop will help participants understand the business environment and overcome the cultural barriers to doing business in this market. It will also include information about meeting protocols, pace of doing business, business customs and the generational change taking place in the country. Through exploring the lens of culture in both Australia and Indonesia, this will help participants to recognise their own way of operating, that of their potential Indonesian customers, and identify ways to bridge the difference.

You will also gain insight from wine producers currently in market who will discuss the main intercultural challenges they have faced, the barriers to effective communication and their top tips to help others succeed by doing business in Indonesia.

This workshop will be suitable for anyone:

  • Considering doing business in Indonesia
  • Already working with Indonesian customers and partners
  • Looking to establish partnerships with Indonesian companies.
