Are good manners in business important or old fashioned? with Patsy Rowe
Statistics show that people are no longer saying: please, thank you, and other terms that express good manners and signs of respect. There is a lack of wanting to be more polite. People don’t have the manners they once had. With the hustle and bustle of daily life and use of social media, emails, and other electronic methods of communication, are good manners in business important or old fashioned?
Patsy Rowe, an author, keynote speaker and expert on business etiquette, believes good manners will never be old fashioned – especially in business! She discusses how to behave in public, how to introduce yourself, how to address people, and other valuable information. We are judged on how we look, how we speak, and how we behave. Therefore, it is important that our manners are good. Knowing basic skills can lead to success. Rowe’s tips will help lift up your standards in business etiquette and help you gain more business!
