Most people know the basics of social etiquette, but business etiquette is a little bit different, and can help planners shine in the eyes of those we work with.

Social Etiquette vs. Business Etiquette
For example, in social etiquette, it is still proper for men to open doors for women.  However, in business etiquette, whoever reaches the door first should hold the door for those coming after them.  Furthermore, in social etiquette, it is usually proper for the man to pay for a meal.  Whereas, in business etiquette, the person who extended the invitation to dine is expected to buy.
