More Business Meal Tips

Posted on by
  1. When you are entertaining one client, sit next to each other at a right angle rather than across the table.
  2. When you entertain two clients put one across from you and the other to your side.  You don’t want to look like a ping pong ball.
  3. At a breakfast meeting time is short so get down to business quickly. At lunch, wait until you have ordered so you won’t be interrupted.
  4. Dinner, even for a business meal is the more social occasion, is a time for rapport building.
  5. If the food or service is poorly executed at a business meal excuse yourself to discuss any problems with the staff in private.
  6. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink at the business meal.  The three Martini lunch is mostly a thing of the past.
