Executive Dining

Confidence in dining situations frees one to pay closer attention to business conversation. When we are nervous, we cannot give one hundred percent of our concentration to fellow diners, leading to miscommunication, or a business breakdown. Questions about which fork to use, what to do if you have dropped your napkin and what role you hold in a “toast” are all legitimate concerns. Knowing how to handle one’s self with poise in dining situations adds to an individual’s overall effectiveness when representing an organization at social and business events.
