Dining & Social Etiquette

     Dining & Social Etiquette

From Forks to Chopsticks! 


Whether you are interviewing for a job or attending a business luncheon, nothing is more revealing than lack of dining etiquette.  Unfortunately you will be judged as to your sophistication, intelligence, education and social skills if you do not have these essential skills, which are crucial to relationship and hence business-building success.  No matter how dynamic your goods or services, your social skills will always be under scrutiny when doing business internationally.

Marie, you were superb!  Your protocol luncheon was really a hit, and the good news did travel fast.  Incidentally, the scenario I relayed to you from one South American guest’s statement that your presentation was the “editorial of the meeting” did, indeed, result in an editorial to be printed soon.  I personally learned a great deal- and you exposed numerous past errors!J.
