Effective Communication in Global Economy

Losses and project delays are terms that the professional world is not stranger to. While these occasions may arise due

to technical glitch or negligence on part of employees, often times they happen due to miscommunication. Effective communication, as we have already discussed in our earlier posts, is of paramount importance in the business world. Especially in today’s global economy where transactions across borders are taking place, a common language for interaction is required. But even with a common language one can get lost while navigating through the global economy world.

It’s essential to understand your international clients. Their customs and culture will vary from yours, they might not be aware of your public holidays and their working hours might be different from yours. It would be helpful to find out your clients’ working schedule and make your schedule known to them as well, so that together you can workout something. Also, they might not be acquainted with your jargon, so make sure to make everything clear from before hand to let the communication proceed uninhibitedly. When dealing with international clients, it is better not to use slang, for they might take it in an unintended sense and get offended. Formality is a safer path.

Fortunately for us, today’s technological advancements have made unhindered undistorted communication possible. Video conferencing is a common practice today by which not only international colleagues but national ones too prefer to communicate. Foremost example of such technology is Skype that we are all familiar with.

Thus to summarize, for effective global communication, understanding the international clientele is very important as their culture and customs are different from ours. In business, simple and concise language is always a wiser choice than obscure statements that create unnecessary ambiguity.

Decoding Tribal Fashion

The rich culture of the natives determines the cultural heritage of a place. Their richness of culture is reflected not only through their art and music but also their clothing and jewellery. It’s marvelous how these primordial tribes made fashion happen at a time when the human race was only grasping the meaning of progress. Today, designers from all over the world are taking inspiration from the blueprints they left behind.

The earthy designs, metallic texture and vibrant colours are what tribal fashion is famous for. The bold prints in highly eye catching colours set this fashion genre apart from the rest. Sometimes we sport tribal fashion without even realizing it. Animal prints, geometric shapes, threadwork, weaves, bead work and ethnic designs all come under the umbrella concept of tribal fashion.

This season, tribal fashion is all about weaves and prints. The Burberry 2012 men’s collection has a host of outfits in prints inspired by the Aztec and American Indians. Donna Karan’s collection for women’s tribal fashion is based on a dark palette and relaxed patterns that make it wearable during the summer. Paul and Joe’s odd prints in vibrant colours were also a hit with the women.

Donning tribal fashion can be quite tricky and it is absolutely important to keep certain things in mind in order to do full justice to the style. For example, if your tribal outfit is brightly coloured and printed, then the only other thing that you’d need to complete the look is a pair of sexy sandals. If you intend to wear rustic tribal jewellery, then maybe that bright top should wait. If tribal outfits seem too loud for you , you can still incorporate the tribal element into your ensemble by sporting a bag or belt in tribal design.

Freelancers are those who work for different companies at the same time without being permanently attached to any.

E-Commerce – Fastest Growing Business In India

When was the last time you bought books from a bookstore instead of getting them from Flipkart.com? Or your handbag from a shop instead of having it shipped from bagskart? Yes, the electronic-media retail pandemic is catching up in India too, and why not, online stores offer a greater variety of merchandise and deliver the order at your doorstep.

Online shopping (redcherie.blogspot.com)

E-commerce refers to the business transactions conducted electronically on the internet. In the past couple of years, India has seen enormous growth in e-commerce which still continues unabated. Forrester, a leading global research and advisory firm reports in their ‘Asia Pacific Online Retail Forecast, 2011 to 2016’ that e-commerce market in India is set to grow at a rate of over 57% within the span of five years.

             The ever increasing popularity of internet retailing can be attributed to the demand and appetite of Indian consumers and the willingness of investors to invest in the media. The push-of-a-button order system of e-commerce seems most convenient for today’s crowd since it saves a lot of time. E-commerce gives a chance to all companies, big or small, to go beyond the geographical boundaries and reach the global market. The 24×7 business transaction rule also escalates sales and profits for the online retailers. For the consumers, e-commerce provides a panorama of things to choose from in the comfort of their homes and the price is often cheaper than the outdoor market.

             Sadly enough, this revolutionary trend in commerce is not accessible to the entire country as there are still places which do not have proper unperturbed access to the internet. But that problem is expected to be overcome soon considering the continuous advancement in technology. Besides the exclusively-online stores like Myntra , Urbantouch, Snapdeal, and eBay, other retailers like Shopper’s Stop with outlets around the country are also setting up e-commerce websites because of their popularity. It’s like they say on the new Google chrome advertisement – “the web is what you make of it”, the e-commerce trend is a satisfying and assuring example of mankind’s progress.
