Susie Wilson’s life is woven with a rich tapestry in history in formal etiquette and deportment, an education she passionately shares daily, most importantly with the younger generation, so that the manners and decorum of yester year don't disappear and become a lost art.

Her formal training was provided through a strict weekly regime overseen by her Victorian grandmother, Florence McMorhan, who invoked the art of occasional dressing, social presence, proper manners, tea pouring and conversation.

Susie’s grandmother took charge and mentored Susie and her siblings, fashioned their manners and etiquette so they could make a confident transition from childhood to adulthood as composed, confident, articulate and polite young citizens.

This education has governed Susie’s life as an adult and guided her into a successful career mentoring and training both adults and children whom aspire to be the most polished, well-presented and confident versions of themselves. Susie herself personifies the attributes of grace, refinement and compassion that she strives to instil in her students. More than her success as a businesswoman, it is her journey that truly inspires them with the belief that education has the power to transform lives.

More than any other industry, the client experience of good manners and etiquette is framed by their unique personal interaction with the client.
