Rules of etiquette may have relaxed, but saying and doing the “right” things are still crucial skills for the dynamic wedding industry.

This full one-day seminar covers wedding and business etiquette and customer service skills for all wedding professionals. The outcome: how etiquette impacts your business success.

Etiquette skills, like many other skills, need an occasional refresher. So this seminar is for the novice, service providers (Vendors) as well as the seasoned wedding professional - what's acceptable today is not the same as even a few years ago. 

You'll learn to blend presentation skills, business lunch etiquette and networking techniques to increase your business with hands-on practicum in persuasive presentations, newtorking skills and business dining etiquette.

Facilitated by Sandra Monahan, Master Bridal Consultant and Etiquette Consultant
