Why are the Dutch so blunt? Who is actually the boss in The Netherlands?
Why do the Dutch leave their curtains open at night? And what are the cultural differences between the Netherlands and other countries? In her lecture ‘How to deal with the Dutch’ (of Working with the Dutch)
Saskia Maarse shows how Dutch culture is seen by other nationalities and cultures. She provides a lively analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the Dutch character. For instance, the Dutch norm that ‘an appointment is an appointment’.
Saskia humorously describes the origins of some typically Dutch characteristics, as well as what we can learn from and about other cultures –in areas like communication, leadership and behaviour.
