Event Details

IN-Person Lunch & Learn

Forks, knives, napkins and spoons – they matter but not more than the people and relationships that are being fostered during your next business meal or networking/social event. COVID aside, there are plenty of things we can think through in advance to help us be prepared for the next professional event. In this session, we will use a real lunch to walk through table manners in a way that is appropriate for today and the future. And at the end, you’ll know your fork from…your other fork!

Learning Objectives

  1. Develop and encourage positive table manners for various situations
  2. Use the skills being taught in real-time
  3. Ask questions about specific scenarios we’ve faced in the past

This program is ideal for: Good for anyone! We can always use practice in this area.
