Social Decorum & Western Dining Etiquette


Social Decorum & Western Dining Etiquette 

There is nothing more embarrassing for a young man or woman than to be shoved into a new situation that requires etiquette and decorum and not having a clue as to what to do or how to behave. In today’s competitive business arena, it takes more than a Diploma, Degree or an updated wardrobe to sail through life. A study by Harvard University,the Carnegie Foundation, and the Stanford Research Institute revealed that 15% of technical skills and 85% of ‘people skills’ (Social, Business, Grooming and Dining Etiquette) is needed to be successful in one’s career and personal life. As businesses become socially-oriented, companies look increasingly to those who possess class, style and the confidence to represent their organization publicly.
