ETIQUETTE DINNER PROGRAM

Every student who registers & pays for the dinner by 10/25 will receive a box of custom UW Tacoma business cards, which you can pick up at the dinner. Enter your info on the registration form very carefully!

Crystal Stanfield, Talent Acquisition Manager for Enterprise Holdings, Inc., will guide participants through a fun (yes, fun!) evening of dining etiquette.  You'll get useful tips, tricks to remember table setting placements, and first-hand experience eating difficult foods with grace.

In addition to getting versed in dining etiquette, students will learn the importance of good manners in a business meal setting and why getting the details right makes a difference to an employer or a client.

"Whether it's an interview over lunch or a job review in the boss's office, one's attention to detail makes an immediate impression," says the Center's Executive Director Joe Lawless.  "Teaching our students the finer points of dining etiquette equip them with one more tool to develop as socially responsible leaders."
