MBA2266 Do Gifts Work in Business?

When you buy someone a gift, what does that buy you? Do customers, partners, and others see it as an investment in your relationship, or an unasked-for transaction? Or worse, an attempted bribe?

Based on conversations with an expert in business gift-giving, we’ll explore the “do’s” and “don’ts” of dropping presents on people. Learn how to give tactfully, and what to realistically expect as a result. Click Play!
