Business etiquette is so much more complex than knowing table manners like which fork to use at a business lunch. This course examines the basics, most importantly to be considerate of of others, dress/appearance, the workplace versus social situations, business meetings, proper introductions and ‘the handshake’, conversation skills/small talk, cultural differences affecting international business opportunities, dealing with interruptions, and proper business email and telephone etiquette.

Have you ever been in a situation where…
– You met someone important and had no idea what to say or do?
– You spilled soup all over yourself at an important business event?
– You showed up at an important meeting under or overdressed?

Let’s face it: we’ve all had those embarrassing etiquette gaffes. This workshop will help participants look and sound their best no matter what the situation.
