    Spinach in Your Client's Teeth and Other Etiquette Dilemmas

    Arden Clise, Clise Etiquette




    Have you ever wondered what to say to a client with spinach in her teeth, or which bread plate is yours at a crowded table? Maybe you're not sure how to introduce someone whose name you forgot. Perhaps you wonder how to gracefully exit a conversation at a virtual or in-person networking event.

    In this interactive presentation, these questions and more will be addressed. You will learn practical skills you can use immediately to feel more confident and at ease in many business and social settings.

    You will learn:

    • Alternatives to handshakes for a germ-filled world
    • How to mingle at receptions, conferences and online with ease
    • How to make business introductions and what to do when you've forgotten someone's name
    • How to gracefully end a conversation with someone
    • How to confidently navigate the place setting even when there are multiple utensils, plates and glasses

    Managing Difficult Clients with Clear Boundaries - CEU-eligible

    Lauren Mang, Let Me Organize It, LLC



    Tuesday, June 1, 2021

    6:15PM - 8:30PM

    Whether you're new to the organizing profession or a seasoned veteran, we all run into difficult clients and agonize over dealing with them in a kind but firm manner. Identifying, setting and maintaining clear boundaries is key. In this session, we'll examine several case studies and attendees will participate in how they would handle the situation. Lauren will reveal how she handled each situation, highlighting what to do, what not to do, and how to implement those clear boundaries!

    While Lauren will primarily be presenting/lecturing and giving specific case studies through a PowerPoint presentation, she will also ask the audience to participate in a "choose your own adventure" manner. She may even call on participants to share their own difficult client situations and allow the audience to give advice.

    Session Objectives:


    1. Identify, set and maintain clear boundaries for all clients.

    2. Learn how to recognize difficult clients in advance through case studies, so you see the red flags early on, and can determine how to handle the situation.

    3,. Learn what to do once you've begun working with a client and you now realize it's no longer a good fit (i.e. how to exit gracefully and kindly).

    4. Walk away feeling more confident in your ability to handle any client relationship and enforce your boundaries.
