Do not ‘big note’ yourself, there is no place for arrogance in this world

Wear appropriate office attire, for example correct footwear, not thongs (flip flops) - they are strictly casual or beachwear. No exposed midriff to display tatoos and body piercing. Be neat, clean and as conservative as the business requires

Do not interrupt another speaker

If there is conflict, do not get personal in your remarks

Keep interruptions to a minimum and always apologise if your intrusion is an interruption of a discussion, concentration or other activity
