The American Advertising Federation (AAF) Emerald Coast Chapter hosted its April luncheon at McGuire's Irish Pub in Destin on Friday, April 12. The AAF Emerald Coast guest speaker was Joy Weaver, an author, speaker and customer service/ etiquette expert.

Weaver is a no-nonsense coach who has appeared on numerous television shows including "The View" on ABC and CBS' "Early Show." Weaver has also been featured in well-known publications including "USA Today," "Southern Living" and "The New York Times."

During the April AAF luncheon; "How to Play Hard Ball with Your Soft Skills," Weaver shared valuable etiquette tips on a varying range of topics, covering everything from first-impressions and dressing for success to the do's and don'ts of dining to writing thank you notes.

"It takes only five seconds to make a good — or bad, first impression but it takes a lifetime to undo any damage that may have been done," said Weaver." Weaver's book, "Socially Savvy," covers the five second rule and many other topics. Weaver's book is highly-endorsed by Zig Ziglar.

"You can apply these etiquette tips to every aspect of your life," Weaver said. "My book talks about dorm room etiquette, business etiquette and social etiquette."


Some of her more thought-provoking advice included:
