Event Overview
How to Network and Eat your CheeseIn today’s world, it’s not enough to just know how to network or exercise proper dining etiquette. They’re no longer mutually exclusive things and you need to know how to do both.

Join Diane Roundy and Chef Leah O’Leary as they tag team this presentation to bring the best of both worlds into this dynamic and interactive presentation that will walk you through the process while enjoying a four-course meal (note that smaller portions will be served to facilitate the dialogue).

Ever get tongue tied, nervous or freeze up in social situations? Do you wish you could be one of those people who can walk into a room of strangers and leave with new business leads and even a few new friends? Roundy will present the topic, “Effectively Working the Room,” an overview of networking basics, how to meet key people and hold lively conversations while creating long lasting professional relationships.

Chef O’Leary will cover “Business Dining Etiquette.” From dress etiquette to navigating the table, styles of service to types of courses, this session will leave you confident with how to conduct yourself in most dining settings.
