Modern Etiquette Lessons for Adults and Children

"Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot"

Clarence Thomas

Do you wish to feel relaxed and self-assured in any social situation?

Etiquette is a life skill. It is not about complicated rules or simply knowing which fork to use. It is about communicating confidently, respectfully and effectively with other people no matter what the context.

Whether it’s a formal dinner or a job interview, a knowledge of etiquette helps you understand other people’s needs and expectations.

Polished Manners courses apply etiquette training to real-life situations, allowing you to make a memorable first impression and conduct yourself in a way that will put others at ease.

Do you struggle to find the right tone for emails, zoom calls, letters, social media messaging or other communications?

We live in a world where communication has never been more accessible. However, each of these different communication methods has a specific tone, style and vocabulary. Miscommunication can feel jarring and damage relationships.

I can teach you to apply etiquette to any social context, equipping you with the skills to communicate appropriately in any medium. My straightforward and practical programmes will make your future interactions with others more effective and enjoyable.

Do you want to give your child an advantage in education, university applications, job interviews and careers?

Professional etiquette training can make the difference between a good interview and a great one.

With my expert teaching, your child will be prepared for all these most crucial life events, making them not only more successful and able to realise their potential, but also happier and more confident.
