No joke – I’m still pinching myself from getting to chat with the one and only Myka Meier.
If that name doesn’t ring a bell she’s the founder and director of the Plaza Hotel Finishing Program with Beaumont Etiquette, author of the Etiquette Made Easy book series, and etiquette QUEEN in the hospitality industry.
Growing up barefoot on Siesta Key beaches – she knew a thing or two about humble beginnings.
But Myka doesn’t believe you have to be born with a spoon to your mouth to need etiquette.
Etiquette goes beyond “fancy” occasions and can be used in the professional everyday world.
We chatted through workplace soft skills, confidence building tips, and handling awkward networking situations with finesse.
You know – the ones like forgetting someone’s name or dipping out of a conversation that’s going way too long.
And yes she does share the story of serving gin and tonic to Prince Charles.
No need to get formal. – join our laid back conversation, grab your drink of choice, and show up as you are!
