Welcome from the Posts!

What does etiquette mean to you? To us, it means treating people with consideration, respect, and honesty. It means being aware of how our actions affect those around us. Why? To help us build successful relationships.

Emily Post Business Etiquette Seminars:

Help your team build successful relationships



Seminars from The Emily Post Institute give your team the social skills and refining polish they need to take their business relationships to the next level. Good business is built on great relationships, and great relationships are the result of knowing how to interact in ways that build trust and positive communication. Our business etiquette training teaches behaviors that project confidence, consistency and trustworthiness. We look at topics such as:

· Why you need a healthy business communication diet that includes in person conversation skills, smartphone rules, email best practices and social media guidelines

· Comprehensive business dining etiquette, from place settings and etiquette for each course to how to interact with the other diners 

· How to navigate introductions, business meetings, networking events, and business travel

· A five-step method for solving difficult relationship situations, taught through examples and group exercises
