“What is your bread doing on my plate?”
You can have your cake and eat it, too. Just make sure it’s your cake and you’re using the right fork. This interactive business dining presentation conducted over a four-course meal arms you with a full menu of strategies that will have your clients eating out of your hand, so to speak. A lot of business is conducted over meals. Many a business deal has not closed and a job or a promotion has been lost because of poor table manners. And you thought only your mother noticed. Learn how to confidently manage the meal every time you dine with a customer, potential client, supervisor, board member, or anyone who has an influence on your career or your business. The more confident you are about dining etiquette the more at ease you will be and better able to focus on the conversation instead of which fork to use.
