Dinner Skills on Wendesday, May 30th in Toronto

Our impression in the social business arena is as important as attending a meeting.  The impression you make continues and managing how you speak, conduct yourself when attending a buffet, dinner or luncheon is important to your career success, confidence and like-ability when you host and dine with  co-workers and clients.  Managing the impression you make and maximizing your ‘like-ability’ are the keys to making every social networking opportunity comfortable and productive. First impressions really are important.  The way you greet people can set the tone for the entire interaction that follows.  If you make a poor initial impression at the dinner table, you may spend the rest of your time overcoming it.  In this fun and interactive workshop you will be given tips on putting your best foot forward with the non-verbal communication, effective introductions, table small talk, serving yourself at a buffet, dining demeanour and behaviours that will make you confident in any business social situation.  You’ll learn the differences of attending larger group buffet venues and smaller dining situations.
