Business Etiquette: The Do’s and Don’ts of Receptions & Meals

By Jerry Gleason


Do you feel lost at networking events?

Do you worry that you’ll make an embarrassing mistake at a business dinner?

BUSINESS ETIQUETTE helps you build your business network. It tells you what to do (and what not to do) at a networking event (such as a cocktail party or reception). You’ll learn what to do when you arrive, how to start conversations, how to make introductions, and even how to shake hands. They say business is all about who you know, so get to know more people at networking events!

BUSINESS ETIQUETTE walks you through every aspect of a business meal from making a reservation and arriving at the restaurant, to using silverware, ordering, and finally paying, tipping, and leaving. Most importantly, it focuses on the purpose of business meals, offering pointers on the six most common types of business meals. Ultimately, the way you handle yourself at a business meal demonstrates your competence and trustworthiness. Show that you know what you’re doing!
