Students prepare for a dinner hosted by etiquette consultant Terri Thompson at the annual Fall Etiquette DInner presented by the Marshall University Office of Career Education on Tuesday in Huntington.

HUNTINGTON — Marshall University Career Services hosted its biannual etiquette dinner Tuesday featuring etiquette consultant Terri Thompson.

During the four-course meal, Thompson offered business etiquette tips for handling dinnertime interviews and networking events, along with answering any questions from students.

“This was an important event for students,” said Debby Stoler, assistant director for development and outreach at Career Services. “They leave with more confidence to handle those sometimes stressful social situations or interviews that include a formal meal.”

The event took place in the Memorial Student Center Shawkey Dining Room and in the Memorial Student Center Banquet Room.

Thompson is an etiquette coach and reinvention expert who started the companies Etiquette in Action and Swizzle Stick Speaking. Throughout her career, she has helped thousands develop professional poise, confident communication skills and personal polish.
