Sean “P. Diddy” Combs hired an etiquette coach to teach his Bad Boy Records staff how to hold wine glasses and chopsticks, among other social niceties.
The music mogul recently hired an international protocol expert to give staff a course on proper dining etiquette, business protocol in foreign countries and other rules of conduct.
They were also shown how to hold chopsticks correctly and present a business card in Japan. During the program, they were also advised on giving business gifts and choosing wine – and even taught them how to eat caviar.
A representative said the lessons were part of a series of training sessions for employees at the company’s Manhattan offices that were “a protocol for new hires.”
The new trend towards Manners and Civility has generated much interest in corporations and shown why the Sean Combs empire has succeeded when many have failed, they understand that proper manners also equal good business.
