Dinner panic attack

Dinner with a prospective (or current) employer--does this phrase induce a panic attack?
  • Which fork, which spoon, which knife?
  • What do I do with all that cutlery when I'm through eating? (and what the heck is "cutlery"?)
  • What if I dribble?
  • What if they serve snail? or lobster? something I have no clue what it is?
  • Why is spinach the most dangerous food on the planet?
Attend the Niagara University "Dining for Success Etiquette Dinner" on Tuesday, October 30, in the Heritage Room (bottom of Clet Hall) from 5 to 7 p.m. for the answers to these questions and more!

This popular annual event provides students with the opportunity to learn the basics of professional etiquette in a meal setting from international etiquette consultant John Bourdage. From Mr. Bourdage's LinkedIn profile: "As owner of Bourdage Consulting, a provider of seminars and training in world class social skills, service, hospitality management and wine and food pairing, I have delivered training to universities, schools of hospitality, various businesses and associations, hotels and casinos and have written several articles on manners, etiquette and networking."

This even typically closes out, but there are still plenty of seats available.  The dinner is free but pre-registration is required. To reserve a seat, contact Career Services at 716.286.8500 or careers@niagara.edu.
