10th Annual Etiquette Dinner
In addition to promoting awareness around the importance of etiquette in a variety of scenarios, the ultimate goal of this program is to help attendees take their already existent leadership abilities and skill sets, and fuse them into transferable skill-sets for successful real life interactions - whether it be an informal luncheon with co-workers or a four course meal at a five-star restaurant for an interview with a group of corporate executives - proper etiquette never goes out of style, and is important to know!
