moments where impressions are formed and decisions are made.
In this age of the internet, why not gain the advantage of making the best in-person presentation, regardless of the situation? (Note: she gives you internet etiquette advice too.) You might meet your signficant other or the person to change your career the next time you are out.
Many of the insights gained on how to behave in certain situations are not only applicable to the business environment, but will also be useful in your personal life. Don't guess as to how you should conduct yourself; life is not a dress rehearsal. BUT don't worry. If you mess up -- and invariably we all do -- Vicky will help you clean up your gaffes.
Why not improve your life and be amused at the same time?
