Hospitality in the Business Lifestyle
Get To Know Each Other
Hosting a business event is an integral part of any job, and it presents an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the other side; to deepen work relationships; and to boost your or your business’ image.
Host a Business Dinner
Hosting a business dinner, for example, is a great opportunity to impress and be impressed – and therefore, it requires impeccable planning and execution. The more effort you put in to organizing such an event, the greater the rewards.
Thinking Outside the (Food) Box
Business events aren’t restricted to just food, and neither are they restricted to your (physical) place of business. While you may choose to organize a business event at a restaurant (or at your own home), you may also plan a unique and fun activity for you and your guests to take part in.
Formal or Casual?
Events in the business world can be separated into two categories – formal events, and casual events. Each of these requires its own set of customs, mannerisms, and rules of etiquette. Knowing and utilizing these rules will help define how the guests – and the host! – will be required to dress, act, eat, drink, and talk – and even define seemingly minute details, such as the seating arrangements.
We offer a thorough workshop, which will allow you to plan, host, and execute an effective business event. Topics that are covered in the workshop include:
- How to properly host both formal and casual business events;
- How to properly host a diplomatic business event;
- How to properly invite your guests;
- How to properly greet your guests – otherwise known as the “receiving line”;
- An introduction to the world of alcohol and its mannerisms;
- An introduction to the world of wine, and specifically – its place in the world of business;
In addition, we will explore the world of formal dining – or, “The Professional Dining Protocol”. Topics covered include:
- Table manners and etiquette;
- Identification and proper usage of different cutleries;
- Different foods from around the world – and how to properly consume them;
- Attending a professional dining event at a restaurant, including proper communications with and tipping your waiter;
- And more…
The workshop is held either at a luxury restaurant or at a hotel.
The workshop is offered in three different configurations:
- One on one training at the TLL offices, followed by a guided meal at a luxury restaurant (two separate meetings);
- A two-hour presentation for the general public;
- A three-hour guided meal, including real-world hosting simulation.
