Unit Three  Business Meals

Reading A

Deals over Meals

1   As a form of business entertaining, business meals are increasingly used to build up personal trust and confidence. Westerners do an extraordinary amount of business over meals, from a quick breakfast to working lunches to cocktail receptions and formal dinners.

2   Breakfast meetings rarely last more than an hour. They imply certain urgency and are often convenient during business travels. Lunch is usually best for getting to know a guest a bit better. People do not have to talk about business, of course. Afternoon tea, or coffee, is a relaxed way to spend 45 minutes or an hour talking about business. Dinner is a more formal business event. Generally, this is not a time to talk about business, but rather a time to get to know the other person and enjoy each others company.

3   Business meals are multi-tasking jobs which can often turn out to be nightmares. If you want to make a lasting impression, then it pays to be on your best behavior at any such meal. Of course, you need to be knowledgeable in your field, but you also need the style and grace to see you through these events. During a typical business meal you must be a good listener, ask and answer questions intelligently, talk about your company confidently and appear pleasant and relaxed.

4   Your mastery of good table manners comes in handy. It gives you the confidence of knowing that you can conduct yourself properly. After all, you are trying to have a conversation with your guest, not concentrating on which fork to use. Choosing the correct silverware from the variety in front of you is not as difficult as it may first appear. Always start with the knife, fork or spoon that is farthest from your plate and gradually work your way in. A simple rule to remember is that liquids are to the right and solids are to the left.

5   Polite dining at the table is one of the codes of behavior that people in the West consider important. By mastering these skills, you become a better representative of your company, a wonderful host, and even more sought-after as a dinner guest.

饭桌生意经

1   作为商务宴请的一种形式,商务聚餐被越来越多地用于增进彼此间的信任和信心。从匆忙的早餐到“工作午餐”,从鸡尾酒会到正式的晚餐,西方人大量的商务活动都是在饭桌上进行的。

2   早餐会晤很少超过一个小时,带有一定的“紧迫”意味,在商务旅行中很方便安排。要加深对客人的了解,午餐则是最好的形式。当然,午餐中并不是非谈生意不可。花上45分钟或者一小时喝喝下午茶或咖啡,可以轻轻松松地谈生意。晚餐则比较正式,通常不宜谈生意,这是个彼此了解并享受相互之间交往的时刻。

3   商务聚餐背负着重重任务,常有可能演变为噩梦连连。如果想给人留下持久的印象,在任何此类应酬中都拿出最佳表现是非常有利的。当然,你得熟知所从事的领域,还得举止优雅,才能顺利应付这些场合。在典型的商务应酬中,你必须认真倾听,机敏问答,并满怀自信地谈论你的公司,同时表现得轻松自若、心情愉悦。

4   掌握良好的进餐礼仪非常管用,它能让你充满信心,相信自己可以做到举止得当。毕竟,你是要跟客人交流,而不是专注于用哪只餐叉。正确选择你面前的一堆银餐具并不像一开始看起来那么困难。一定要先取用离你餐盘最远的刀叉和汤匙,然后逐渐地向内取用。要记住一条简单的规则:液体放在右边,固体放在左边。

5   礼貌进餐是西方人认为重要的行为准则之一。通过掌握这些技巧,你会更好地代表公司的形象,会成为一位令人愉悦的东道主,一位更受人欢迎的宾客。
