The Importance of Dining & Business Etiquette

The Black Tie Dining Experience

 Putting your Best Fork Forward!

How well do your employees put their “Best Fork Forward” when representing your company in a dining or social setting?  This is one of the most overlooked aspects of a business dinner or event, but it can also be one of the most crucial.  Due to our technology today everything your people do while representing your company at an event can be captured for everyone to see. 


One idea is to talk about proper dining etiquette.  But who wants to sit through a typical “how-to etiquette dinner”?


Putting Your Best Fork Forward is an interactive seminar that breaks the stereotype of a “typical etiquette dinner” and it contains both a meal and a twist!  And the "twist" makes the entire event MEMORABLE!

This one-of-a-kind interactive program includes:

  • -What is the Black Tie Dining Experience?

  • -Tips for better networking during the cocktail hour

  • -Dining Protocol tips and techniques that few people practice 

  • -Course-by-course training on how to dine

  • -And don't forget the "twist" to all of this! Contact Bob to find out!

  • This event can be held at your office or a venue of your choice.    

We're so appreciative of the time you spent with our emerging leaders during your "Putting your Best Fork Forward" seminar!  Although many of them have been exposed to the concepts you shared, your method of teaching is so much more impactful than what we've seen in the past. 


Our emerging leaders not only heard the importance of their actions and behaviors in a business networking event, but they also had a chance to try it out "live," all the while enjoying a delicious meal.  The feedback that we received was fantastic, and they all walked away with at least one thing they learned that they didn't know. 


As for the team leaders who also participated?  Saying that they "enjoyed their roles" would be an understatement!  Thanks for sharing your vast experience with us, we look forward to continuing our partnership and friendship with you!
