What is etiquette and how does etiquette play in the accounting profession? The word “etiquette” feels squishy, or perhaps antiquated. The truth of the matter is that etiquette is the intersection of social guidelines with social interactions. Etiquette will always exist, and it simply evolves as society changes. Of course, many CPAs work regularly and directly with colleagues and clients, but in a rules-based, technical profession, it can sometimes be challenging to shift gears to different social settings. Part of strong teamwork and client service involves ensuring that the social interactions we regularly have are comfortable, professional, and generally reflect current social dynamics.
The good news is that MOCPA’s Young Professionals Committee has designed a program to ensure that you bring the latest professional etiquette tools and techniques to your next team or client meeting. The MOCPA Young Professionals Etiquette Experience simulates common professional settings such as the workplace environment, client dinner, and networking events so you can feel comfortable putting your best self forward with team members, clients, and potential clients!
Led by Professional Etiquette Consultant, Melenie Broyles from Etiquette St. Louis, you will learn about current office, client, and peer networking trends; practice techniques to engage with other professionals; and identify ways to enhance working relationships with your peers and colleagues.
Each session runs from 4 -7 p.m. and offers 3 hours of CPE credit for a member fee of $50; student member fee of $35; and non-member fee of $60.
