On Their Best Behavior
February 10, 2011
You only have one opportunity to make a first impression." It's a timeless piece of advice given to students as they prepare for life in the professional world but many wonder "how do I make a good first impression?"
Stonehill students will get the answer to that and many other questions when they attend a Business Etiquette Dinner sponsored by W.B. Mason on February 15 at the Martin Institute.
Students will learn what is expected of them on the manners front from professional etiquette coach Darinda Ryan-McCann of the Etiquette South of Boston School. They also will have the opportunity to network with W.B. Mason employees, who will also be in attendance and who will share their experiences on why etiquette is so critical in business today.
From eye contact to handshakes, students will get insight on proper introductions and appropriate behavior in professional settings as well as dining etiquette tips like napkin protocol, silverware positions and cutting positions.
Ryan-McCann is the president of the Etiquette South of Boston School, which offers classes in etiquette, manners, communication and social skills for children, teens and young adults. Ryan-McCann is a graduate of the American School of Protocol and Aquinas College. Before starting Etiquette South Boston School she was the founder and chief officer of two financial corporations.
