The Graduate Program in Sport Management hosted its Etiquette Dinner on Thursday November 17, 2016. The event brought together 100+ students and an array of special guests. The evening’s focus was on exposing the students to the “dos” and “don’ts” of dining in the professional world. For the fourth time, a representative from Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits held court, leading our students through a litany of scenarios they may face along their career’s journey.
The Emcee of the night, Mr. Chris Soriano of SGWS, guided our students through the process of wine tasting and pairings, the art of the ‘tray pass/cocktail hour/meet & greet’, table introductions, and a plated dinner. Along the way, Chris highlighted nuances of dining, from napkin placement, soup manners, bread buttering, who pays the bill, and much more! He spoke from personal experiences which resonated with the attendees, as well as his observations from the business world he travels in. Thank you Chris for your expertise and willingness to share your etiquette knowledge!
The students had the opportunity to network with professionals from different industries, our Advisory Committee members, alumni from our program, and members of other Learning Team's within the program. Networking cannot be stressed enough in our industry or in life, therefore many took advantage of this situation to begin relationships with some and reconnect with others.
As an added upside to the event, each person in attendance was provided the opportunity to have a Linked-In quality headshot taken by a professional photographer.
The goal of the night was to teach our young professionals about the basics of etiquette and to put them in situations that should have a positive impact on their life’s journey. As one of our special guests shared with his table, “there are not too many times that you will be promoted at a dinner setting like this, but there are far too many times that people can kill their career based on a bad social experience.”
Our students should be prepared to be in position to put their best foot forward and differentiate themselves from others in the marketplace.
