MASTERING THE BUSINESS MEAL
A Strategic Approach
Are Your Employees Literally Eating Your Budget Dollars When Conducting Business Over A Meal. What Is Your ROI?
It is estimated that more business deals are closed over a meal or entertainment venues than in the boardroom. Mastering the nuances of having an effective business meeting while dining or entertaining is vital for your employees. This program features a comprehensive overview of how to simultaneously dine while conducting business with professionalism and finesse. Are your employees doing both seamlessly?
Your employees will learn tactical skills from how to invite a client to a meal to scheduling, when and where, control who sits where, ensure he or she gets the “check” without a fuss, to leading conversations to the purpose at hand. And much more!
The key is to have a purpose and an objective prior to inviting anyone to have a meal or event. Without this, your employees should stay in the office and let the budget be used somewhere else because the money will be wasted. Make every penny count!
