What is Business Etiquette?
During the interview process you’ll want to put your best foot forward. But do you know what is expected of you during a dinner interview? Do you know how to manage yourself at professional reception events mingling with others while juggling food and drink? And what about making small talk and entering and leaving conversations in networking situations? In Gina's professional business etiquette training workshops, you will learn how to move gracefully through the world of networking at receptions and meal events while projecting a polished professional image. Making a great impression entails more than just eating with the right fork.
What will you learn?
Polish your politeness skills in interactive sessions. Students will gain an edge in a competitive job market. Once you learn proper etiquette, you’re able to do what you’re supposed to do: network, connect and communicate.
The confidence that comes with social graces is a key to success. And while combining confidence, competence and charisma might seem like a tall task, manners go a long way toward helping people reach their full potential. When people feel uncomfortable, they cannot be their best self.
