ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurant.com today released the first of the Greenlight Dining Guides, which provide simple and effective suggestions on how diners can strengthen relationships over a meal with a generous mindset, listening tips and suggested topics for conversation.
"I can think of no better partner than Restaurant.com to help us teach diners how to open up and really connect," said Keith Ferrazzi, author of Never Eat Alone and chairman of myGreenlight Academy. "Whether dining with your significant other, family, business colleagues, friends, or even clients and prospects, using the Guide makes the dining experience richer, more robust and more powerful for you."
The first of five posts about the Guides appears today on Restaurant.com's blog, The Dish. The weekly series details how meals enlightened by use of the guides lead to a mom reconnecting with her teenagers, a couple retiring to live their dream of traveling the world and other significant breakthroughs.
"We're excited to work with Keith Ferrazzi and the other noted communication experts he enlisted for this joint project. We share his conviction that a meal is probably the best venue for deepening relationships," said Restaurant.com President and Chief Marketing Officer Christopher Krohn. "The response to our research trials of the Guides was enthusiastic, and we look forward to helping many more restaurant.com visitors learn how to get the most from conversations while dining."
