As a professional ad man, I'm ashamed to say that I'm really not good at advertising, well, me. That goes double in social situations. I never know where to stand, how to eat, how to engage people in an interesting way, even shaking hands never really seems to go as well as I'd hoped. And I am rotten at remembering names. In a world obsessed with first impressions, knowing just how to act can be your ticket to fortune and glory.

At work, a good impression during a business meeting or luncheon can significantly turn the tide of a meeting. At a business function, new  opportunities can be made, or lost, depending on how you act, speak or eat. Even during our social lives, great impressions can lead to great friendships. But regardless, there are certain skills we can all use to make that first impression both memorable and positive. Here are a few tips from the experts.
