Little Mr. and Ms. Speechcom 2014
Speechcom summer sessions start tomorrow, Tuesday, April 23, at the Sacred Heart Center. One yearly feature in the social graces module is the search for Little Mr. and Ms. Speechcom 2014. It focuses on proper grooming and good manners and right conduct.
SP Comm Kit. In social gatherings, who greets who? The lady acknowledges a male friend with a smile, so the latter feels comfortable to approach and talk to her. One who has a higher designation takes the first move to greet with a smile one with a lower rank.
The lady stands up to greet an older person or a person of authority, when the occasion dictates. For males and females of same age or rank, greetings are not dictated by any formal procedure.
