Whether the situation is a business interview or a special event, everyone should know how to act in a formal dining situation. By participating in this seminar, students will learn the "Do's and Don'ts" to dining. Topics include: socials, handshakes, table settings, ordering, gender etiquette, what to order, maintaining conversation while eating, interview dining, etiquette at the table, dining around the world, and more! This seminar includes interactive presentations and fun activities to help participants learn the rules of dining etiquette.
