Every place has rules that we must follow, even in the normal things that we practice all the time in a relaxed and natural way. To appear before them in a classy, decent and important image, and with a great deal of responsibility, so the seventh day reviews with etiquette expert Shahanda Shawar the rules of attending meetings and official events in order to enjoy a classy and civilized appearance at all times.
Etiquette for attending meetings
First, it is forbidden to eat
During your presence in the meeting, you should refrain from eating food completely, even if some of the “aptisers and salizons” are presented in front of you, especially if you are one of the young employees, in order to give a good impression about you that you are interested in working and listening to what is going on and not busy with food, and also the etiquette expert warned against eating Bonbonnie or chewing gum, so as not to project a bad image of you as untrustworthy or responsible.
Second: It is forbidden to use the mobile phone
She also stressed that you should not use the mobile phone or make conversations or browse during official events and meetings, because this act gives a bad impression to your superiors, including that you are negligent at work and indifferent to them or their presence, and it is preferable to put it on the silent feature throughout the time of the meeting.
Third: stay away from boredom
Cracking fingers, the constant random movement of the body, and shaking of the legs, are all signs that indicate that you are not interested in the meeting or the people present, and also the “scribbling” on the papers in front of you or drawing on them gives an impression that you are tired of sitting in the meeting.

Fourth: Know yourself well
Especially with the people you see for the first time, you have to shake hands with them properly and extend the handshake time a little while introducing yourself in a way that is not exaggerated and brief and contains information about you and your work, and this gives a good impression of professionalism at work.
