Seminars

Northeastern Illinois University
“Annual Etiquette Seminar”

Gloria’s etiquette seminars are all about the experience. She begins by selecting a table leader for each table to aid in the teaching. Next, she offers an activity with each course, which can range from the proper usage of utensils and how to handle a challenging food selection (e.g., tricky salad or onion soup) to a conversation exercise that is summarized and shared by the table leader. The table conversation exercise concludes with interview tips shared by faulty members. Finally, it’s time to celebrate with a toast; everyone learns proper toasting protocol. She might even teach women wearing lipstick how to drink wine without making a lipstick imprint on the glass. Then it’s onto learning effective networking skills in preparation for job fairs and beyond. No matter what, her seminars are engaging!

Gloria takes an experience the learning approach. She uses interactive activities and group involvement, thereby assuring that her participants experience the tools and confidence they need to be their professional best. Plus, this gives her participants an opportunity to expand their social network by interacting with individuals, through the exercises, they had not previously met. She is always available following her programs to answer any one-on-one questions.

What does this mean for you?

You can be sure that Gloria’s programs are not only entertaining, but they are also relevant and topical. She has the gift of speaking to many while making each person feel as though they are the only one sitting in the audience.

Her enthusiasm is infectious, and people leave her training sessions inspired to create new opportunities for success and happiness for their respective classes or sessions. She can turn a training seminar into an experience of desire, hope, and possibility.
