Entertaining and Dining Etiquette

The dining table is filled with potential dangers and mishaps particularly if you are feeling nervous and unsure as to the correct dining behaviors.

Many people believe that copying those individuals around you will suffice for the lack of dining education however 75% of adults do not know how to dine correctly.

Those people who do know the correct way are usually important players in the business arena having had many years of experience and generally come from knowledgeable affluent backgrounds. They are knowledgable on the expected behaviours and are well aware of your mistakes. This course will give you the boost to fast track your learning and understanding of all these dining skills before embarrassing yourself at an important dining event.

According to a fortune 500 CEO, “Eating is not an executive skill… but it especially hard to understand why anyone negotiating a rise to the top would consider skipping this very simple skill. What else have they missed?”

After all, you spend a significant amount of your life around a dining table, using it as a tool for solidifying potential business relationships.  This course will allow you to take your mind off your plate and focus on the important business issues at hand.
