Brush up the basics of business etiquette

40 Below Presents: Business Etiquette 101

Featuring Brian Earle (Cornell University)

We could all brush up on our etiquette from time to time. Whether you're just starting your career, or have been in the professional world for years, this presentation will guide you through the do's and don't's of professional interaction.

Learning proper etiquette can be fun and rewarding. Civility and proper etiquette are common sense, not an invariant set of rules. It can have a critical impact on an individual’s first impression of you and your subsequent success, both personal and professional. It takes little effort to learn and apply proper manners, it should be a part of all our office and social activities. The presentation will also provide some networking and social interaction tips.


About the speaker:

Many Cornell alumni consider Brian Earle to be one of their best teachers at Cornell. He is the only faculty member to receive all four top teaching and advising honors in CALS: The Louis and Edith Edgerton Career Teaching Award (2004); the Kendall S. Carpenter Memorial Advising Prize (2003); Professor of Merit (1998); and the Donald C. Burgett Distinguished Advisor Award (1997).  He also received the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Distinguished Teaching (1991) and the CALS Alumni Association Outstanding Faculty Award (2009).

    Thank you to everyone who attended this event! Professor Earle was a wonderful guest, and taught us a lot about making a good first impression in a professional setting. My favorite part was his advice on composing your elevator pitch. Remember:

    -have a hook
    -establish your credibility (why should someone listen to you?)
    -pitch yourself, not your ideas.

    What were some other helpful tips you picked up from the presentation?
