Is there any slides that help to follow western table manners?

Dear Vidya,

Only experience, no write up available.

Some things that may benefit you you ab initio are: -

During Meals. Forks are always on the left, spoons on the right. dessert spoons on top.

Main plate in the centre and quarter plate on the left.

Glass of water on the right.

During Break Fast Forks on the left and the knives on the right, rest almost same.

Do not make noice (by munching ops) while eating.

Keep your mouth closed as you munch/ eat.

As far as possible keep your hands and elbows by your side. Do not keep them on the table.

Waiters are gloved, have caps on, and serve water from the right side and rest of the food from the left.

You still need some thing, if your fork/ knife, or fork. spoon are kept across each other (right on top of the left), and then waiter would/ should come to you for another helping. If these are kept closed (parallel) to each other in the centre of the plate, it is indication that you are finished, and the waiter shall pick up the plate.

Of course, now that you know what indicates the open plate, and what is closed, good manners would be that you let the senior most person close the plate before you do.

Senior most person shall normally close the plate, when he notices that all have finished their meals.

Thats for now, if I recall any other thing, I shall revert.

You can engage a trainer to take you through the business etiquette program because if your executives are travelling abroad it is worth investing in this area as you don't want your people looking uncomfortable in front of foreign delegates and it will also say that you have been thoroughly prepared for the meeting
