“The world was my oyster, but I used the wrong fork.”—Oscar Wilde Although surely alluding to something besides good table manners, Oscar’s classic metaphor does contain a grain of truth underlying the pros and cons of proper etiquette. Like it or not, manners and etiquette are the hallmarks of a well-rounded person and, even if only subconsciously noticed by others, are a trait whose benefits are enormous both socially and professionally. Today’s etiquette is so much more than simply being able to correctly identify spoons. For many, especially young professionals, conducting oneself properly in the office, at meetings, and at work events is extremely critical. Here to instruct all that is proper is Nancy R. Mitchell. For more than 25 years, Nancy has been an etiquette consultant for numerous clients and is the owner and principal instructor of The Etiquette Advocate (etiquetteadvocate.com), which has been featured on CNN, ABC Nightline, Martha Stewart Living Radio, The New York Times, and many more. Arranged by events and settings, the book will clearly and succinctly give readers everything they need to know to successfully maneuver in today’s world; from knowing how to properly serve high tea, to giving a perfectly tasteful toast.
