It was pleasurable for my children and they have gone ahead to put what they have learnt into practice. We are looking forward to next year’s session. Ibinabo
Adeodata, it is such a pleasure to read your newsletters. For some time I’ve wanted to let you know that my daughters, now 29 and 30 with babies of their own, still remember (and more importantly) use all they learned in your children’s etiquette course of almost 20 years ago. Both in their personal and professional lives. It’s truly amazing the impression you made on them. A teacher whose lessons are being passed on now to...
Thank you very much for having us yesterday and sharing your knowledge and experience with us. It was super helpful and we learned a lot (Adult Etiquette).
Thank you so much for the wonderful workshop [Kidiquette]. I am so happy we found you. Definitely I will enroll my daughter for the next one.
It was a pleasure seeing you again; I found the session invaluable.– Prathab
Thank you again for allowing my daughters, Naiyah and Asia to partake in this class Kidiquette. They have definitely learned skills that they can use now and build on in their future endeavours.– Nicole
It is our pleasure to serve your teen etiquette luncheons here at Goodfellas. The service you that you provide is exemplary. Definitely a lost art. It should be mandatory at all schools. Lord knows today’s young people could use some manners. [Teen Etiquette]– Garry Sinyard, General Manager...
Thank you very much for your time today. I have learned a lot about strategies of communications and proper manners during a dinner, and those are really useful when applying to the actual situation. I highly appreciate today’s course. [Teen Etiquette]
Thank you for the wonderful session, my daughters loved all the information they learn with you, especially they felt it was so much fun to set up the tables. They are looking forward to seeing you soon for next etiquette. [Kidiquette]
Words cannot express my gratitude you showed throughout the Adult Etiquette Workshop yesterday. I am forever grateful you were willing to share your knowledge to make me and others better citizens. Very much appreciated.– Lorna Murray, Lorna’s Cuisine & Etiquette[Adult Etiquette]
Minden dolog amit tanitottal rendkivul fontos es oriasi erteku az eletben. Halas vagyok neked a tanitasodert. General translation: Everything that is taught is extremely important and valuable in life. [Adult Etiquette]
Thank you for such a wonderful session on Saturday [Adult Etiquette]. It was extremely informative and I learned so much. Especially fascinating was learning about the seating arrangements.– Kelvin Yang [Adult Etiquette]
I had lunch with my niece today and she shared many elements of your workshop [Teen Etiquette]. It was a family event and we were asking her questions about what would be done in various scenarios. She has retained a lot of information and happily shared her new knowledge. We were all impressed. Thank you for a successful workshop. — Deanna [Teen...
I cannot thank you enough for this experience. Bianca went through the entire course with us on Saturday, she taught me a few things as well. She also set the table and poured my wine that evening, very impressive. I shall recommend your course to all the parents I know. I hope to sign her up for the refresher course in a few months. — Jenni Bourne, Bourne Technical Services [Teen Etiquette...
Thank you for the wonderful training session last night on dinner and cocktail etiquette! I learned a lot not only about manners, but also about the confidence, elegance and wisdom equipping a modern woman in her social life. We were all so charmed and inspired and can’t wait to send our kids to your course for children.– Laura Xi, CPA MBA, Educational Consultant, Toronto
I look forward to applying the knowledge I gained from spending a wonderful Saturday with you.– Josh
You are an absolute miracle worker. Last night, my daughters set the table and ate like truly civilized people. They were able to explain what the cutlery was for and even how to use it to indicate when they were finished vs still eating. I just about fell out of my chair! Thanks for bringing out the best in our girls; they will definitely be back for the teen program.
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.
Thank you very much for providing such a wonderful session for our girls. They enjoyed it thoroughly and learnt so much from you. I would like to send them for a refresher course soon.
My son really enjoyed the session with you and was noticeably more confident when introducing himself when he attended a meeting with me on Sunday!
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 again for hosting such an important and much needed seminar for teens as they develop, evolve and mature! Adele spoke highly of you and especially enjoyed the yummylicious lunch!
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.
It was a pleasure to meet you the other day. I enjoyed your presentation and would love to receive your etiquette tips.
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.
I thought the program was wonderful and I’m looking forward to the upcoming sessions.
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.
Thanks very much Adeodata. Last night was brilliant! I learned a lot. It’s hard to believe the little things you take for granted. I am certainly glad I attended.
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.
You are a consummate professional and I just LOVED your presentation! It’s obvious you have honed your presentation skills over years to make your presentation OUTSTANDING.
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 pleasure to have you as our expert for our Meals & Manners event. Everyone had a terrific evening. The feedback I’ve been hearing has been overwhelmingly positive. Hope we can do it again in the future.
Your wonderful presentation yesterday at Vesuvio’s was interesting, informative and fun! Thank you so much.
We should do this again. What an afternoon. We all had so much fun and learned so much. Many thanks.
Thank you very much for the course today, it was informative and enjoyable! Truly was a pleasure.
I wanted to thank you for spending time with us on Wednesday evening’s Meals & Manners seminar at Hockley Valley! I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I really learned a lot. I look forward to receiving your email updates!
Words cannot express how wonderful it has been working with you today. The wisdom you have shared with the Rotman Commerce Students will be with them throughout their careers. We look forward to working with you in the years to come.
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...
Thank You for having such a fun and educative session last week. It was a very pleasant experience and I will definitely recommend it to people I know.
I just wanted to sincerely express to you how greatly I enjoyed your very informative and interactive info-session on Business Etiquette at the CMA – Carleton University Event. Thank you for your wonderful presentation.
The students were buzzing the next morning and the event was the talk of the campus. Thank you so much. You were fantastic. I’m really looking forward to the next time.
Thank you for sharing your evening with us on Tuesday. The advice you gave me was both informative and fun.
