Camels, Sheikhs and Billionaires by Cynthia Dearin

I had the pleasure of meeting Cynthia Dearin of Dearin Associates recently given our mutual interest in culture. The former Australian  diplomat shares in “Camels, Sheikhs and Billionaires” her experiences living and working in the Middle East and North Africa.

Camels-Sheikhs-Billionaires-v2-300x300Whist there are some similarities in terms of cultural differences as there are between the West and East, like then nuances between the provinces in China, there are many differences across each country in the MENA region.

Divided into three sections, the book outlines the commercial opportunities given strong economic growth, the culture, values and beliefs, and how to communicate from the first business meeting, to negotiation and social etiquette.
