I’ve been lucky enough to work with and help many amazing people in my life.
I’ve trained individuals to address issues with grace and professionalism, formal dining etiquette and more. Because I believe that whether you are interviewing for a new position, building your business or seeking new social relationships, etiquette and manners matter.
Have you been trained to address issues with grace and professionalism?
Have you prepared yourself and your team to make business travel and hosting clients second nature?
On October 18th at the Ritz Charles, I will be hosting a Professional Development and Networking event. We will have butler service providing hors d'oeuvres and beverages, networking rotations and 3 etiquette episodes that include:
This is what Assistant Chief of Police for IMPD said about etiquette training:
“As my career progressed, I found myself attending formal dinners more frequently. The skills and techniques learned during your etiquette class have eliminated the associated anxiety with such events. Due to your instruction, I know longer have to follow the lead of others at the table. I now possess the confidence to lead by example. I remain grateful for your coaching and will encourage other professionals (not familiar with the art of fine dining) to consider a personal session with you.”

My girlfriend double dips when we are eating our appetizers. Should I say something?
There are two internationally accepted styles of cutting and consuming your food. One is referred to as the "zig zag" method. Can you name the other style or the official name of the "zig zag" method?
Traveling, especially abroad, has a sense of mystery to it that jet setters seem to have a craving for. No land is too far away. No land is too foreign or culture too strange. Over the years, I have made friends and met people who travel abroad for work as often I travel to the beach in NC. They have been there and there and have done all of that. Their stories are full of expansion and intrigue. From savvy business deals to rubbing shoulders in the marketplace with the indigenous people, to basically being responsible for their own personal safety and security.
BE ORGANIZED. Plan to have everything in place and ready to receive guests an hour earlier than stated on the invitation.
There will always be things to tweak but there shouldn’t be any major preparations one hour prior to your party.
