When you are attending a social setting like a party, it is important to conduct yourself the right way. Let me give you an example:
I know of one person that attended a business seminar and drank too much. This was the first time she had met this group of people and she (at 55 years old or more) was making passes at people, touching them where they shouldn't be touched, and couldn't walk to her hotel room.
What was the end result? Several people complained to human resources, and they were also ready to file a lawsuit against her. Is this an extreme example? Maybe...
But what impression did she make? Were they thinking positively about her? Of course they did not. They thought that she was highly inappropriate and refused to work with her in the future. That impact cost her a lot of money in lost clients as well as professional embarrassment.
