Reviews of @Advancing With Style courses
Very clear and concise. Presented professionally!
Excellent to see this terrific audio presentation with visuals. Very clear, concise, and practical. Useful keys to proper dining etiquette so one feels more sure when being the host.
Clear and information packed
This course covers situations that I would never have thought of and I would bet could tech even those experienced with dining etiquette a point or two. How to handle toasts, the check, service problems. All covered wonderfully.
High Quality, Comprehensive
This course accounted for far more dining situations than I anticipated. If you are looking for a business dining etiquette course then I highly recommend this one. This was particularly helpful in clarifying the differences between purely social dinners and those for business. I had no idea there were so many ways to fold napkins on your lap, or what the proper response to your boss' toast is.
This is a great course
This is a great course especially for those new to the corporate world are just moving into a role where they might be expected to entertain a client or prospect. Although you might think the concepts of this course are obvious, you would be surprised at how many people have never had proper etiquette training. Even seasoned socializers can learn something.
Useful, specific, detailed advice
This course is a very useful guide to etiquette when dining with professional colleagues. From guidelines on behavior (who should order the wine?) to how to use silverware (what fork do I use first?), this course covers all of the challenging ins and outs of the formal dining experience. Make sure that you and your colleagues are prepared with this excellent course.
