What does he do? Why, specifically, did she go out of her way to come to your corporate luncheon in Fairfax? Do you homework, so you can speak with confidence about your guests’ business and current industry trends.

Don’t assume you’ll leave the event as best friends.

Just because you and a business guest hit it off at your corporate luncheon doesn’t mean it’s appropriate to invite her out for drinks the next day. Keep your business relationships all business, all the time.

Watch what you say about the competition.

Sure, your company is hosting the event for the sole purpose of convincing prospects to bring their business to you. The talk is all about the benefits and value you provide for your clients and customers; it should stay that way. Never speak ill of your competition.

Never ever talk with your mouth full.

Mama raised you better than that. It seems like common sense, but you might be surprised how many otherwise incredibly successful executives never learned that it’s a no-no to talk with food in your mouth. To avoid this faux pas at your next corporate luncheon, take small bites, and only speak when you’ve swallowed.

Be kind to the catering staff.
