Business conducted over a meal puts the individual’s social skills in the spotlight. Not only must you make conversations, but also show that you have a level of sophistication and civility in varying company. You may be hosting the business lunch or attending a formal dinner: whatever the situation, knowing the rules of the road will put you at ease in the situation. Dining etiquette is more than knowing which fork is first. When you eliminate the faux pas, you can prove yourself as someone others can trust to handle their business.
