Dining Etiquette: Outclass the Competition

Regardless of your position within an organization, mastering the art of dining etiquette adds a competitive edge. With the lines between business and social entertaining often blurred, knowing how to carry yourself at the table while being able to conduct business is becoming an increasingly essential skill.

Whether you’re networking over a breakfast, meeting a client for lunch or having dinner with colleagues, this professional development workshop and luncheon will position you to make a professional and confident impression, not only for yourself, but also for the organization or employer you represent.

It’s more than just knowing which fork to use. It’s about being able to extend your tablemates respect by carrying yourself with grace at the table. It’s about being able to navigate the place setting without worry so that you can better focus your efforts on engaging the client, or even your boss. It’s about being able to land the job, keep the job and move up in the job.

This workshop will not only provide you with the dining etiquette knowledge essential in today’s business arena, but it will also provide you with a hands-on luncheon to put your knowledge into practice.
