The UConn School of Business hosted its first annual Etiquette Training event on April 6, 2011. The event speaker, Dan Post-Senning (the great-great grandson of Emily Post), explained to students that etiquette is not just about knowing which fork to use; more importantly, etiquette is the power that fuels our business relationships and offers a guide to success by combining manners and principles. The Emily Post Institute’s principles have been guiding business professionals since 1922 when Emily Post first wrote “to make a pleasant and friendly impression is not only good manners but equally good business.”
Two events were held on April 6th, each specifically geared toward MBA’s and Undergraduates, respectively, for a total of over 145 students. These events were both sponsored by our corporate partner Pepperidge Farm, located in Norwalk, Connecticut.
