Keynotes

 First Impressions

It takes mere seconds to make a first impression.  An unprofessional appearance translates into a lack of professionalism.  Tardiness translates into a lack of respect.  Electronic distractions are considered rude. And, rude behaviour is considered uncivilized.  Judgements are being made IRL (in real life) and we haven’t even uttered a single word yet!  These days you’ve also got your virtual image and the message it’s sending to consider, because when judgements are made, your reputation, your productivity, your brand and ultimately, your bottom line is affected.

Let Cecilia connect the dots about the importance of business etiquette in today’s world, revive your confidence in professional courtesy and help you positively impact your bottom line by giving you the tools to make positive and lasting first impressions.
