Have you ever thought about the impression you make on others? Learn to present yourself with confidence and authority because research shows that 93% of what someone remembers after meeting you for the first time is how you looked and how you behaved, only 7% is content or what you had to say. Today in the fiercely competitive business arenas, etiquette is simply another tool you need. While etiquette alone won’t get you anywhere, it will give you that extra edge that will make the difference between you and another person who is just as smart.
