Have you ever worried that you will unknowingly make a manners faux pas at a business lunch? Felt unsure of how to best introduce your colleague to a client? Wondered how to approach a new face at a networking event? We have you covered.

GAIN’s Mentor Committee is proud to present the next event in its 'DC Decorum' workshop series, centered on the proper – yet distinctive – codes of conduct that every young professional working in DC should master.

GAIN and PLEN have proudly teamed up with George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management to host a half-day workshop on the art of business etiquette, designed to give attendees the knowledge to act with confidence in any business situation.

Join us this February 16th to explore topics like self-presentation, effective communication and networking, dining customs, dressing for success, remaining composed in stressful situations, and more.

We'll learn about nailing the handshake, making a positive first impression, selecting proper attire for every type of event, navigating a table full of strangers, and understanding the duties of a guest and host. We’ll even dive into the rules of "netiquette" – properly managing yourself online amongst ever-changing technology.

Michelle Pappas from Potomac Protocol & Etiquette will lead the workshop, allowing us to benefit from her 15+ years of experience.

Please plan to join us this February 16th at George Washington University’s Campus from 10am to 2pm to gain the etiquette knowledge you need to maximize your personal success and profitability. Lunch will be provided.

GAIN’s resolution every year is to ‘Inclusively Connect DC’ by helping government relations professionals at all stages of their careers develop and fine-tune their advocacy skills. Attending our ‘Decorum’ workshops is a great way for newcomers, seasoned professionals, and everyone in between to learn the ropes and sharpen their skills, and hopefully meet some fantastic people along the way.

Register here. Remember to bring your business cards, we look forward to seeing you in February!
