Many first impressions occur at a dinner table. Making the right impression is essential! Dining etiquette affects your social standing and may even dictate future job opportunities. With Poised & Proper, we will walk you through the dining experience one fork at a time. You will learn often-overlooked habits, such as napkin etiquette, cutlery technique, conversation skills, and even how to excuse yourself from the table. After learning these habits, you can focus on the conversation and enjoy yourself and those around you. Training may occur at a local restaurant or your private residence.
