How to be
From presentation to hand kissing

You won’t be able to make a good first impression twice!
Job interviews, friendly greetings… What attitudes should you adopt to give the best image of yourself or your company? There is only one rule, the SBAM.
S for Smile; B for Hello; A for Welcome; M for Thank you.
And above all, be yourself

For a “goodbye” that leaves a lasting impression: the hand kiss!
The kiss-off is to French savoir-vivre what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris: a symbol!
