The UConn School of Business Career Center hosted two Etiquette Training events on April 4, 2012. The first event was specifically geared toward MBA students focusing on the impact etiquette has on the business environment including production loss, executive-level etiquette responsibility and potential business situations that tie into social environments. The second event was held for the Undergraduates in which the event speaker, Daniel Post-Senning (the great-great grandson of Emily Post, a renowned expert in the field of etiquette), guided students on a multitude of topics including: job interview and follow-up etiquette; when it is appropriate for a guest to discuss business topics; and, more importantly, how 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.”
These events provided business and social etiquette advice to over 75 students and were sponsored by our generous corporate partner Pepperidge Farm, located in Norwalk, Connecticut.
