The Polished Professional
Social Skills for Professional Success … We Mean Business!
Business etiquette has become as integral to one’s professional image as technical knowledge. Every young professional should realize that understanding business protocol in today’s business arena goes hand in hand with success.
Spurred on by global competition, companies look increasingly to those who demonstrate the essential soft skills with confidence. These skills include introducing clients and making them feel comfortable, understanding and respecting precedence, and confident social networking skills.
Through the power of first impressions to confident dining and conversation skills, our Business Etiquette seminars provide a basic formula for success.

Thank you to the hosting committee at Stetson University College of Law! We enjoyed working with all of the students in guiding them on a successful path toward their future.
“It was such a pleasure to have both of you coach our first-year law students on professional networking! I know that they thoroughly enjoyed your interactive and enthusiastic presentation and are looking forward to this event again next year. You taught our students many valuable lessons that they will be using tonight (and in the future) at the Stetson Alumni networking event. I can’t thank you both enough for coming out to help our students; the event was a true success. Although I am graduating this semester, I know my Board of Governors is looking forward to working with you in the future.
