The M.B.A. with a Global Perspective program invites M.B.A. candidates to a professional business workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the Grey Towers Castle Dining Room.
Presented by Karen Lawson, Ph.D., CSP, the workshop, “Let’s Do Dinner (or Lunch): Business Dining Etiquette,” is designed to provide students with skills and techniques to move successfully through any social-business situation, including business lunches, dinners, and networking events. “As business becomes more socially oriented, companies seek professionals who possess class and style when publicly representing their organizations,” said Lawson. “Students will learn how to sharpen interpersonal skills, use proper etiquette in any business-related dining situation, and develop poise and confidence for business socializing.”
Lawson, founder and president of Lawson Consulting Group, Inc. and Adjunct Professor of Business Administration at Arcadia University, is an international speaker, consultant, executive coach, and author, specializing in organization and management development. She is one of 350 people worldwide to have earned the designation of Certified Speaking Professional awarded by the 3,500-member National Speakers Association. She was named as one of Pennsylvania’s “Best 50 Women in Business” as well as one of the Philadelphia Business Journal’s “Women of Distinction.”
This event is the second in a series of four M.B.A. workshops offered this semester, which are included in M.B.A. tuition. Upcoming workshops include “Networking in Business” on Thursday, Oct. 25, and “Business Writing” on Monday, Nov. 26, presented by Jeanine R. Kingeter, PHR, Adjunct Professor of Business Administration at Arcadia University.
