One to One meetings are the key to the building and strengthening of relationships between members. Such meetings put you in a position to learn more about an individual in 20 minutes than months of emails or phone calls ever could.

Preparation for One to One meetings

  1. Business cards (minimum 150)
  2. Company brochures (30-35)
  3. Information regarding the services you offer and where you operate (perhaps in an electronic presentation)
  4. Statistics about your company. E.g. Number of shipments from/to
  5. In addition to the above, prepare the meeting. Think about why you are having the meeting, what you want to know about the others and vice versa.
Following the above steps will ensure that each meeting is profitable for both parties.

Quick Facts

Language: The official language in Indonesia is Bahasa Indonesian. However, Balinese speak the language of their mother island, Balinese. English is the common "third" language and the most popular foreign language by far.
Time: UTC/GMT +6
Tax: VAT 10%, 15%, 21%
Electricity: Voltage 230 V, Frequency: 50 Hz. Power sockets: type C / F. In Bali and Indonesia you can expect the 2 pin socket and plug as used in larger parts of Europe. The pins are round, not flat or rectangular. If you come from Australia, Japan, USA, Malaysia, UK, Canada, Singapore, and some countries in Africa you will most likely simply need a plug adapter. Otherwise the plugs for your electrical appliances will not fit into the "Bali Socket", although the voltage should be okay.
Measures: Metric System
Tipping: This is not common practice. Sales tax in restaurants ranges from 10% – 15% – 21%, depending on the class of the restaurant. In addition, service charge of 5% is also sometimes added. However, if you are feeling extra generous you can tip extra by just leaving coins on the table for the waiting staff.
Emergency Telephone: 112 (like 911). Ambulance = 118. Search & Rescue = 111, 115, 151. Police = 110. Fire Department = 113
Business hours: Government offices in the city are open from 8:00am to 4:00pm

Climate

The Climate in Indonesia is almost entirely tropical. Temperatures in the city average 28ºC with average humidity above 70-80%. The rainy season is from November to March. May is one of the best months to visit Indonesia: dry, sunny days are the norm.

Religion

Indonesia is constitutionally a secular state, with Islam being the dominant religion in the country. The government recognises only six official religions (Islam, Protestantism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism), although based on data collected by the Indonesian Conference on Religion and Peace (ICRP), there are about 245 non-official religions in Indonesia.

Money

Money: The Indonesian Rupiah is the currency of Indonesia (IDR).
Credit cards: Credit and debit cards can be used in larger stores, restaurants and hotels in Indonesia. Though it’s still worth carrying cash for smaller transactions at cafes and markets or if you travel to some of the more out of the way or rural areas.
ATMs: ATMs are common in the larger cities and tourist spots. If you want to change cash, use a moneychanger as they offer better rates than banks or airports.

Safety

Pickpockets: On the whole Bali is a safe city but as with all major capitals, watch out for pickpockets.
Pavements: Be careful of uneven pavements which have a tendency to trip up an unsuspecting visitor.
Credit card: When paying by credit card, ensure it is kept in plain sight. The card should not need to be taken away to process your bill.
Car driving: Cars drive on the left side of the road as per the UK, Australia etc.

Health and vaccinations

Vaccinations: No vaccinations are required to enter Indonesia but for the yellow fever. Please check with your GP as to what they recommend.
Zica virus: There is a risk of Zica virus in Indonesia. Many people infected with Zika virus do not get sick or only have mild symptoms. However, infection during pregnancy can cause severe birth defects. For more information, please click here.
Water: It is mostly preferred to drink bottled water. Only drink bottled water with the seal intact and avoid ice at road stalls as it’s not usually stored hygienically.

Manners and etiquette

Handshake: When meeting someone for the first time, a handshake is normally used. Due to the Islamic culture of Bali, this is normally between people of the same gender. A handshake can be reciprocated if the woman offers her hand to the man, but not vice versa.
Behaviour: Behaving appropriately in public is extremely important in Bali. Overt displays of affection such as kissing or hugging are to be avoided.
Temples and mosques: Remove shoes before entering mosques and temples.
Bear in mind: Do not point at anything with your feet as feet are seen to be the lowliest part of the body. Furthermore, do not touch anyone on the head as it is considered the most sacred part of the body.

Dress code during the meeting

Dress code: Business
For men: tie and jacket required
For women: suits, trousers, jackets, skirts and dresses that, while not formal, are appropriate for a business environment
Cell phones: to be turned off or turned to silent at all times.
One to Ones: please make sure you are prepared for your one to one meetings.
