Clearing Up Etiquette Confusion

Etiquette rules have always been around.  Like us, they have evolved with changes in lifestyle and technology.  At the core is the on-going conversation about the ways we show up recognizably respectful.

My goal is to help clear up confusion and explore how to use these rules as guidelines for courteous and civil professional and personal lifestyles.

As a body of "how-to" knowledge, etiquette helps you navigate any situation gracefully.  Discovering the rules will give you confidence and help you feel comfortable whether you are meeting someone new, hosting an event, mingling at a party, or dining at a formal table.


I conduct customized learning sessions and trainings for your business, university, sponsored group, or conference.   

Providing a relaxed, fun, and informative learning experience is always top priority!  Read what some participants gained by attending my training sessions.
