No matter where we might be in our career or personal life, etiquette is always important and can make the difference.


Learn or refresh the “do’s and don’ts” of etiquette to make the best of every opportunity. Most of us learned these tips as children, but select to forget a few of them as time goes on. When you enter a room do you look your best, have the right attitude and take control to meet new people that can strengthen your business or personal confidence?


You need strong skills and they can start with a handshake, the correct way to introduce yourself and even properly exchanging business cards. It is that first impression that makes the difference.


Let this session guide you through all proper business skills for mobile phones, BlackBerry, electrical devices and e-mail etiquette, responding to RSVPs and even sending invitations. Did you know that older Americans have had the largest percentage increase in internet use of any age group?


Have your ever used the wrong bread and butter plate, drank your neighbor’s coffee or picked up the wrong napkin? Or even worse, had no idea that you even made these little dining faux pas.


This session will provide the tips and guidelines to look, act, lead, eat and strategically place yourself in the best position for your career advancement and personal achievements.
