Business Etiquette 101

As a business grad, I was lucky enough to have my school teach me proper business etiquette. That class though, was over 5 years ago, so it’s time for me to get back up to speed, especially in case there are any new trends I’m not aware of. 

I thought I was really lucky to have stumbled across this class, because I’ve been meaning to get re- acclimated with the finer details I may be accidentally slacking on. I was at a conference last month when a man asked me to help him put on his name tag since I was part of the volunteer staff. He told me that he didn’t care where it went, just that it was straight so people wouldn’t think he was a goofball.  The reality is though, is that name tag etiquette exists, and that it really does matter where you put your tag.

So lucky for you, I’m going to attend the class again so you don’t have to, especially since I doubt you want to roll out of bed on 7am for the fun of it. I’ll do a little networking, a little eating, and hopefully a lot of learning, and I’ll come back and report it all; I don’t want you NOT getting a job or closing a deal because you ate your tomato the wrong way.
