How to Take the Anxiety
Out of Meeting New People
A Dinner Event with Adrienne Barker
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
6pm – 8pm Dinner Event
Three things you will learn at this event:
- How to introduce yourself and network with confidence and ease
- The importance of remembering people's names and an easy method for doing so
- A refresher on basic table manners (after all, we'll be eating dinner!) and how to be an excellent business guest and host

As children, some of us had manners drilled into us by our parents. We know which fork to use and how to properly ladle soup into our mouths. Some of us were taught these things but quickly forgot them. And some of us didn't get any etiquette instructions at all - we've just been winging it at business meetings and fancy restaurants!
Like it or not, others judge us based on our behaviors and how we make them feel. Therefore, proper etiquette can mean the difference between forging a long-term business relationship with someone or not making a connection at all. When we follow proper etiquette, we signal to others that we are professional and that we respect them.
Etiquette isn't about rules - it's about respect.
And Adrienne is here to help!
With wit, charm, and humor, Adrienne will teach us about various Do's and Don'ts of business etiquette, including handshaking, eye contact, table manners, how to be a gracious host, how to be a gracious guest, and other important aspects of business interactions. Business etiquette may seem like a dry subject, but Adrienne makes it easy and fun! And you may be surprised by what you'll learn...
"I learned so much from Adrienne in a short presentation - it blew me away! This lady knows her stuff. She is fun and light and full of very valuable and important insights - the kind of wisdom that can truly make or break the first impression with anyone you meet or are looking to win over."
