  • Have you ever lost a critical deal over a business meal…and how would you know if you did?
  • The business dining table is the single most important place to build relationships.

If you’d like to fine tune your social skills, enrich your personal and professional life and turn possible fear into confidence, then this may be important information.


When I speak to some people they may not be so focused on what fork to use but they want to make sure they are the most capable and memorable person in the room and get the job. Not knowing what to do with your napkin, or understanding which fork to use, or even how to properly handle the fork, can make us feel self-conscious in certain situations. Being self-conscious is a distraction that could cost them to be overlooked.

Even in today’s relaxed corporate environment, poor manners are never looked upon favorably. People do notice…We speak about ourselves as we demonstrate to others our professionalism…or lack of it.

This is of issue because today a large amount of business is conducted out of the office and meetings are often held while dining. Are you and your company losing business because of less than polished behavior? The answer could be yes and you may not realize it…As the saying goes…You don’t know, what you don’t know.

But we do know that companies are losing money as associates, employees and corporate executives are not well versed in how to conduct business over a meal.

This course will enable you to be more confident. So whether dining with a friend, colleague, client or at The White House, you will handle yourself with confidence, style and world class. This course will also help you to help your guests feel more comfortable and help business to be conducted in a more successful manner in any dining situation.


Based on interviews, corporate America views a lack of table manners as an incomplete education…no matter what your degree! The great thing is you can increase these skills quickly and easily…..

Although this course was written with the American and International business professional in mind, it will help anyone who wants to learn the graciousness of dining properly.

This course is comprised of videos and a handbook:

The course is available with a certificate or without a certificate.

With certificate – This program offers a certificate of completion based upon watching the videos to completion, successful 70% passing of all quizzes and completion of the exit survey.

You have to complete a section video or quiz before you can advance to the next section

Without certificate– Without certificate the quizzes are offered but not graded, you do not have to watch all the videos and you can move about the program freely.

Why do I need a certificate of completion?

Some employers or colleges may require proof of completion for credit or reimbursement of course expenses.

The program can be repeated as often as needed.


Are you an executive that is in a position where you can’t promote competent individuals because they could embarrass you in social business interactions?
Are you one of those individuals that may have been passed over for promotion and you don’t know why?  It could very likely be that you just can’t cut the mustard when it comes to having the personal savvy for professional success.

Look at the list below to see if you may be hurting your career by not knowing the following:

  • Where do you seat the guest of honor if you are the host?
  • When to begin the business part of the meal?
  • How to dine continental with international guests and why would you do so?
  • How many glasses of wine can you have at a business meal?
  • What to do with your silverware when you are finished dining?
  • What does it say about you in business if you salt your food before you taste it?
  • What you are eating if there are 3 forks on the left of your dinner plate?
  • When to begin eating when you are the guest of honor?
  • When to place your napkin in your lap?
  • What to pass if someone has asked you to pass the salt…and how does this relate to your ethics?

If you know the answers to these questions then you might not need my advice, but if you don’t know the answers, this program can change that.

Confidence at the dining table is an important part of your ability to bond and build relationships both personally and professionally.
