Business etiquette is so much more than knowing which fork to use at lunch with a client. Etiquette is about presenting yourself with the kind of polish that shows you can be taken seriously. Etiquette is also about being comfortable around people (and making them comfortable around you!)
Good etiquette adds to your overall credibility. If you treat all people with respect, show courtesy in the office and dress well, those you work with will most likely think highly of you.
On the other hand, poor etiquette can hurt your professional relationships.
During this workshop will look at many areas of business etiquette, including networking, meeting manners, dining decorum, international business etiquette and more.
