Which fork do I use? What if I drop my spoon? When do I place my napkin on my lap? Learn the answers to all of these questions and more by attending the Walker EDGE Etiquette Dinner promoting good business manners and networking skills. This is your opportunity to learn how to navigate a formal dinner and make a favorable impression.  Being familiar with proper meal etiquette is important to establishing a good impression particularly if you have an interview which takes place over a mealtime or if the job you want requires a certain standard of conduct with clients, co-workers and supervisors.

Cost: This is a free event, however, to reserve your spot, you are required to submit payment information online at the Walker EDGE payment site accessed through the registration form.  There is a $35.00 fee for late cancellations and no-shows. Your credit card WILL NOT be charged the $35.00 fee UNLESS you cancel after 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Monday, April 14th or no-show to the event on April 16th.  PLEASE NOTE: If you use a debit card, a temporary $35 "hold" may be placed on your account until the order is canceled or processed by Walker EDGE after the event.

Cancellation Deadline: Monday, April 14, 2014 before 12:00 p.m.
