The annual Etiquette Dinner, now in its fifth year, is easily the most popular of the weekly workshops that Chicago Careers in Business (CCIB) students must attend. The students enjoy a formal meal as Bremer guides them through it, showing slides at the front of the room and occasionally circulating to correct students’ technique.
“We could just tell the students how to hold a plate at a buffet,” says CCIB director Keith Dipple. (Later in her lecture, Bremer reveals the art of balancing a plate, a napkin, and a wine glass in just one hand, leaving the other free for shaking.) “But unless they actually do it, it doesn’t go in.”
