Are your employees projecting a positive image when they take valuable clients or prospective clients out to dine?

For thousands of years, important business deals have been struck over a fine meal. Food and drink bring people together in ways that few other things can. At the same time, a meal gone wrong can sour a deal very quickly. That is why it is so important to know how to navigate a business luncheon or dinner with grace and poise.

In this personalized three-hour program for private corporate groups, Business of Manners tutors your salespeople, account managers and other client-focused representatives in the finer points of dining etiquette as they enjoy a delicious three-course luncheon or dinner with wine.

The lessons are interspersed throughout the courses, giving participants a chance to put their learning into practice immediately and to ask questions as they arise from real-life situations.

Good Dining manners in Different Cultures

In addition to North American etiquette, attention is paid to various other cultures around the globe so that participants can feel confident entertaining clients from a variety of backgrounds.

An etiquette quiz with 30 multiple choice questions is assigned to each participant before the event. The quiz is then marked and handed back during the meal, when the answers are reviewed and discussed in light of the new learning. $175; $295 for two, includes 3-course lunch or dinner and quiz.
