Chamber offers etiquette seminar

Monday, March 2, 2009

The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a half-day seminar on "The Basics of Business Etiquette." The seminar will be from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 26.

The seminar will be at the Walden Inn and will cost $30 per Chamber member, including a continental breakfast.

Business Etiquette is made up of significantly more important things than knowing which fork to use at lunch with a client. Unfortunately, in the perception of others, the devil is in the details. People may feel that those who can't be trusted not to embarrass themselves in business and social situations may lack the self-control necessary to be good at what they do.

Etiquette is about presenting oneself with the kind of polish that can be taken seriously. Etiquette is also about being comfortable around people, and making them comfortable.

People are the key factor in the success of a business. Many potentially worthwhile and profitable alliances have been lost because of an unintentional breach of manners.

The program will be presented by Heather Penney, executive director of the West Central Small Business Development Center.

For a registration form, contact Executive Director Tammy Amor at 653-4517 or Registration forms and checks payable to Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce are due by Friday, March 20.
