especially if there is a sit-down


dinner. Leaving early may look antisocial or unappreciative.”


SOCIALISE Mr Hanson said: “You should


use the opportunity to talk to people in the office, perhaps that are higher up, who you have been desperate to talk to for the whole year and haven’t been able to. “Use it to social network and


to make a good impression, rather than thinking ‘I am going to bond with my colleagues’. “That’s marvellous but you can


do that in your own time; this is perhaps the time to go and impress the bosses.”


DON’T LEAVE SOMEONE ON THEIR OWN


Mr Hanson said: “If you find


yourself stuck with someone terribly dull and you want to get rid


of them, it is impolite to leave them on their own. “What I would do is pair them


off with someone else by saying, ‘You know I have just seen someone I must go and talk to but have you met so-and-so’ and introducing them to someone else before you escape.”


BE PREPARED FOR HANDSHAKES


Mr Hanson said: “You need to


ensure you have one hand free all the time, don’t have plate and glass, and if you are being sensible you will hold your drink in your left hand so you can still shake with your right. “It just looks rude if you don’t


shake hands. Hopefully your host will have the foresight to make sure there are plenty of surfaces available for people to put stuff on.”
