March 2013 – SCOOP Magazine | The Business of Lunching
Natasha Di Ciano, Founder & Managing Director EGAMI, shares her take on business dining etiquette in SCOOP Magazine’s feature article The Business of Lunching. A successful business lunch requires more than simply sending a meeting request, shooting the breeze for an hour, footing the bill and expecting business to fall in your lap. It requires finesse, professionalism and charisma. It’s also an investment in time and money, so to ensure your business lunch has the greatest chance of success, you have to put your best foot forward.
