Thank you for imparting some key social graces to my boys on Saturday. Learning how to guide a blind person across the street has peeked my younger son’s interest. He demonstrated this for me. The other one taught his younger sister how to fold napkins. Thanks again.

Thank you again for the mannerly experience.  I have since been to two galas and, although I have been attending business lunches and galas for about 10 years, I just felt much more comfortable and confident at the table.  I am trying to convince my children of the benefits of a session. It’s a confidence builder.

I want you to know how much my son enjoyed your workshop. He was so impressed and thrilled with the three course lunch. It is not usual to engage teenagers for a full day and give them a fun experience too.  He learned so much and he relayed his newfound knowledge on the drive home. Absolutely he will return for your adult workshop.

The team spoke so highly of you afterwards and I could see that your talk had a big impact on people because they talked about the specific points that you made. They were saying that they were going to change some of their “ways”, right away. It is so interesting to hear how much people want to do the “right thing”, and how grateful they are...

You are performing a socially necessary thing when you teach people good manners whether they are on the phone or just living in our society that is becoming more bizarre every day. Keep up this noble work. Someone has to do it and I can’t think of a more capable person with a more calm and endearing voice.
