Blog: What do your table manners say about you? (Part II)

Catherine Sleep | 24 June 2003

Following up the earlier entry on etiquette, check this out. I bet many of you undertake international travel - this could prove handy. It’s a comprehensive guide to etiquette at formal functions, taking in arrival, taking your seat, “napkin management”, choice of silverware, how to handle spillages and much, much more.

As the authors at The Business Forum comment, “Our actions at the table and while eating therefore can be essential to how others perceive us and can even affect our professional success in the Business World.”

I should give it a read before I go to lunch with the Finnish ambassador tomorrow, shouldn't I?
