Etiquette on display

THE Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus 2014 queen contestants were hosted by the Grand Pacific Hotel to an evening of cocktail and public appearance etiquette earlier this week.

Dressed to impress, the glittering beauties turned up with their vintage-themed outfits and displayed the etiquette they had learned so far throughout the competition — how to hold themselves, how to address people and basic things such as meeting and socialising with new people.

Present at the event was Hibiscus Events Group Incorporated chairman Hirdesh Prasad and GPH general manager Eugene Diethelm who enjoyed the company of the young women and to get to know them a little better.

"The skills demonstrated by the contestants were up to standard and we are very happy that the workshops that we have conducted with them have been very helpful and that's evident in everything they do now.

"The Hibiscus committee will continue to train the contestants as we are aware that the demand from the public is high. The contestants this year have diversified interests in various fields and it will be very interesting to see them advocate these issues which affect Fiji," said Mr Prasad.
