Shaking Hands When The Person Is Not Seated Next To You

We are frequently introduced to others who are not sitting immediately next to us.  It occurs at events such as luncheons, board meetings and social occasions.

Under no circumstance should you reach across the table in front of someone to shake hands.  Instead, stand up and extend your hand to the individual you are being introduced to reaching behind the backs of others sitting at the table.
