“Global cultures are fascinated with American business and how it is conducted. To many people, American business practices seem shrouded in mystery because it’s information that’s not available outside of America’s corporate cultures.  This vital information is not offered as course curriculum in the finest schools or universities, and the only way one can learn it is by spending time within key leadership at the top rungs of successful companies.

Remember, business etiquette is not social etiquette. What are the differences? Social etiquette is based on the values and norms of a group, so people can relax and enjoy themselves within certain parameters in that group. Business etiquette is a set of easily learned skills and behaviors for building trust with customers, and it is part of a company’s image and culture.” – Phyllis Davis, Founder and Director,  American Business Etiquette Trainers Association (ABETA)

Your ABETA certification offers the opportunity to become recognized as an American Business Etiquette Expert as a local, national or global resource for the media (television, radio, and print).
