Expeditions in Etiquette

Adult Education

Training in Business and Social Etiquette, and Professionalism.

Looking for that competitive edge?  In today’s business world, people skills is a hot commodity – but it takes more than a “great personality” to skillfully maneuver through the business environment.  Employees need training on how to represent themselves at social venues, from board meetings and business luncheons to cocktail and client appreciation parties.

Basic techniques will ensure that everyone is left feeling comfortable–no matter the situation–and that both you and your company will leave an impression of polished professionalism.

Carey Sue is available to speak to your employees at events and training classes, or to any professional organizations.  Please call 405-721-1467 or email CareySue@ExpeditionsInEtiquette.com
