Course Objectives

First impressions are often made within seven seconds of a meeting and are difficult if not impossible to change. This course helps you leave a great first impression. The course addresses how to deal with others in a business setting, taking into account differences in culture and region. Since business is often conducted over lunch or dinner, dining skills can also impact someone’s opinion of you as a potential business partner. This course will give you tips on how to apply proper manners and business etiquette in many different settings.
