Adult Etiquette

Adeodata, I enjoyed your class tremendously and I like how you taught with a sense of firmness and at the same time being very graceful. I learnt many new things from you which was more than what they taught us at the seminary which I really appreciate.

Thank you so much! Both Matthew and Isabella learned so much. They described everything you taught them in detail. Now they are the “manners police” when we are having dinner!– Lina

Thank you for taking the time with my daughters for the Teen etiquette workshop. I was impressed with all the topics that were covered and the notes that they took in their handouts. As a busy mother in this hectic day in age I feel a more confident that they now have a better understanding of social graces and why it is so important. I wish students would have a compulsory course in school that teaches them what you teach.

Just wanted to pass along that my son really enjoyed the session today. He learned a lot and said he especially appreciated the conversation starters. He also wanted me to make sure you knew he found the whole course very good and is eager to return for the teen session.

Heartfelt thanks for the teen etiquette workshop.  Our children told us they really enjoyed the day with you and learned so much. They told us you were very nice and knowledgeable. My husband and I were corrected by them at dinner last night and they showed us what they learned. Our niece is coming for dinner tonight and we will be utilizing the new skills you taught them. Thank you.

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 for a marvelous presentation. Everyone really enjoyed it and I received a lot of positive feedback. FYI – I loved the way that you quieted down the table in the back, by getting them involved in the conversation.

From the moment I walked through the door you opened that would forevermore enhance my confidence and polish future engagements, your smile warmed the brisk Saturday morning we first met. For what I would later leave with, I am at a loss for words. Your humble but constructive approach was in itself extraordinary while the material covered was practical and applicable. I agree with Lynn the whole seminar was well executed and far from boring. An...

Very good feedback from the Wednesday night group. They had lots of stories to tell and lots to laugh about. They said you were a hoot (to quote one person). Thank you Adeodata for helping all our Sysco managers.

Your warmth and enthusiasm put me right at ease, while your thorough knowledge of the subject kept me interested in all you presented. I think I have really mastered the art of having the last mouthful last long enough for my guests to finish their meal. Many thanks.

What a fun way to revisit the fine art of dining. I was especially impressed with the way you gently help people to be more polite. Your suggestions for ways to meet people and what to say, to learn more about what interests them were particularly useful for me.

I loved your talk on manners, customs and protocol for dining internationally. Your delivery was charming and funny, and you handled the audience with great skill. I particularly loved how you dealt with the whisperers in the crowd, a pet peeve of mine. How ironic and apropos of a talk on manners.

It was a great pleasure having you coming to our school and teaching us business dinner etiquette. I must admit that I have learned quiet a lot of stuff that I have no clue about before. For instance, I learned that when clinking the wine glass, we should look at the other in the eyes. And the lady’s glass should be slightly higher than the gentlemen’s; or in the case of both people are the same gender, the older one’s glass...
