Course Outline

Business and Social Etiquette     

Have you ever come out of a meeting or cocktail party saying to yourself “I wish I hadn’t said that” or “I wish I knew how to handle those situations”?  Like most of us you probably have and it’s mostly due to the following factors -

  • At least 40% of adults experience some form of social anxiety. 
  • That 75% of adults feel uncomfortable in one-on-one social situations.
  • That failing to win social endorsement from clients, prospects and peers is a major contributor to lost business and stalled internal advancement. 

It’s an unfortunate sociological fact that our social and people skills are constantly and covertly being evaluated and judged by our clients, prospects and peers and it is absolutely vital that the signals we send and the behaviors we exhibit are beyond reproach and receive a solid passing grade.

To provide a high etiquette comfort level and remove any “second-guessing” of behavior, AEW & Associates Inc. specializes in the design and delivery of practical and interactive seminars that deal exclusively with analyzing and re-focusing skills, behavior and knowledge leading to greater confidence and control in all business related social interactions.

What makes our seminars so unique and effective is their focus on providing the confidence and charisma needed to cultivate and sustain long-lasting relationships. 

Our 'blue-chip' client list includes RBC Dominion Securities, Rogers Communications, BMO Nesbitt Burns, Bank of Nova Scotia, C.I.B.C. Commercial Banking Group, TD Waterhouse.

Some of the topics included in our half-day or full-day training seminars include: 

* Developing Powerful People Skills                * Projecting a Positive Image
