Dining Etiquette Dinner

Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands

About the Evening: Join us at the Steel Dynamics Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center for a mocktail reception where you’ll learn proper ‘cocktail hour’ etiquette, a mock silent auction,  and enjoy a four-course meal where we’ll explain the do's and don'ts of dining etiquette. Kiss, Bow, Or Shake Hands: The Bestselling Guide to Doing Business in More Than 60 Countries. Chair of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Dr. John Niser, will entertainingly guide you through this evening of fun ... and a little learning.  We will also have a fashion show to give you some ideas of what to wear to a night out. 

Space is limited. Formal dress is preferred, but business dress is acceptable.

WHY? Proper etiquette is part of a well-rounded education and is vital for making a great first impression. The skills learned at the Dining Etiquette Dinner will be useful not only for business occasions, but in every first impression!

Why should I learn how to interact at a fundraiser? As we enter the professional world, you may be asked to participate in different social situations. Many of these will come from non-profit sectors or community improvement projects. It is important to look and act professionally in these settings, because dignitaries are often invited to these events. Even if you are attending for fun, you will be a representative of your company when you attend high profile events.
