Watch Dragons Den. Every deal with a woman ends with a handshake and a kiss.
I worked for an English company before and hated the whole greet and kiss thing. You can see they hesitate as they dont know whether to peck you on the cheek or what. I just used to hold out my arm straight for a handshake so there was no doubt about moving closer.
A peck on the cheek is a bit too affectionate for a work colleague or someone you dont know IMO. A handshake is perfectly acceptable.
