Introducing Etiquette for the Everyday Girl
I’m an etiquette girl.
In fact, I buy etiquette books and read them for pleasure. CALL. ME. CRAZY. I’m drawn to etiquette because I tend to lean traditional, and love knowing the proper way things should occur. It’s fun, and knowing the proper way gives me confidence in uncertain situations.
I’m introducing a new series here on the blog called Etiquette for the Everyday Girl. You can count on etiquette essentials for this modern world – in business and in life. YAY!
Here’s today’s tip:
The proper way to make an introduction:
Here’s the gist: Introduce the “more important” person first. Break it down:
- In business, introduce the CEO to the Director of Operations: “Hailey, (CEO), I’d like to introduce you to Taylor (Director of Operations).” Think of it this way: The Director of operations should already know who the CEO is. The CEO, on the other hand, wouldn’t necessarily already be acquainted with the Director of Operations).
- In life, introduce the elder person to the younger person: “Grandpa, please meet my friend Carter.”
Good stuff, no?
