Rules Of Etiquette For a Business Lunch

Keeping up with an image in a business environment:

Keeping up with an image in a business environment Your image matters, especially when you're in a business environment. Whether you're going to a business lunch with your peers, recruiters, clients or partners, you need to make sure you behave appropriately. Yet many don't know proper dining etiquette in business hotels in Dubai.

Wait for Your guests:

Wait for Your guests If you arrive at the restaurant first, wait to be seated until your guest arrives. Sitting down before them is a faux pas and can make it harder for them to find you.

Play host:

Play host If you’re the one who arranged the meeting at a 4 Star Hotel , then you’re the host, and you need to act that way by handling the bill, making sure your guest is comfortable, and possibly even making menu recommendations.

Don’t bring up business talk too soon:

Don’t bring up business talk too soon Embrace small talk, but don’t let it delay the meal. You are there to get to know someone outside a business setting, but that doesn’t mean it should take all day. Place your orders before getting sidetracked talking about each other’s families, latest technology or movies.

Sync what you order:

Sync what you order Skip either the most expensive, or the cheapest, item on the menu, because it can signal to your guest that you’re focused on the price tag and make them feel uncomfortable about their own selections. Also, try to mirror the number of courses that your guest chooses. If they’re opting for a soup, salad, and main course, don’t just get one dish, or you’ll be watching them eat while you wait for your own food to arrive.

Mind your manners:

Mind your manners Remember what your mother taught you: Bring your food to your mouth, not vice versa; use your salad fork for the salad, and tilt the soup bowl away from you. Manners can make a good impression.

Limit the messy grub:

Limit the messy grub No matter how much you’re craving steak or pizza, skip it: They are way too messy, and it’s pretty much impossible to look professional while eating with your hands.
