Golden Rules of Etiquette for Business Events

(Read reviews)

Price: $199

Overview

Learn to Impress for Success at Social Gatherings

From holiday celebrations to conferences, team dinners and corporate retreats — work events are often held in a relaxed, yet professional, environment. These gatherings offer a wonderful opportunity to connect with coworkers and interact with power-players, but they can be disastrous to your career if you don’t mind your manners.

Yet few of us are trained in the art of good manners at such gatherings.

That is where this webinar comes in. For 90 minutes, you will learn how to present yourself to impress at conferences, meetings, networking events, cocktail parties and other social gatherings.

You’ll gain practical insight into what to do, how to do it and especially what to avoid.

You never know who you might meet. Having good business manners may make the difference between advancing your career and missing out on a valuable opportunity.
