Having travelled / worked at many places around the globe, there is one incidence which I would say has remained with me as that incident taught me lots about professional ethics.

I was in UK in 2002 and supposed to visit Dorchester on Thames for a meeting. Since, it was my first trip and I was fairly new in UK, I took an early train and reached the customer's office by 8.45 am. I was thinking the meeting is at 9.30 and so the guy will come at 9. I was surprised to see the man already in the office with most of the office staff. They all had their teas and coffees till 9 am and exactly at 9 am, everyone was on their seat doing their stuff. When I asked the guy about it, his reply was 'When it means office starts at 9, it means work starts at 9, so anything that is not work has to be done before that'. I just loved this work ethic and it has stayed with me since then.

Similar case in Japan. You can't be late for a meeting even by a minute and you can't be early by anything more than 8 minutes as that means you are bad in time management.

More travel experiences later
