Good manners and a working knowledge of professional behavior are always essential and productive skills in every business person. These are the same skills that Sheridan Faculty of Business students practice in their Professional Edge course, a required second-year course in the Business Administration programs at Sheridan.  The evening of March 25th, saw 50 students come together for the opportunity to learn and practice this important professional behavior at the annual Guided Dinner event, a capstone project of the Professional Edge course.

The elegant evening was orchestrated by industry expert Louise Fox, who provided a step-by-step commentary guiding Sheridan Faculty of Business students through contemporary business dining protocol as they enjoyed the wonderful five course meal.

This year’s event was held at Alice Fazooli’s restaurant in Mississauga. The guided dinner is offered as part of the Professional Edge course but is open to all interested students. The students who attended were very pleased with the event and vowed to practice their new skills daily.

The event was sponsored by the Faculty of Business and organized by Professor John McRae and Program Support Specialist Lesley Rumsby.
