Susie Wilson





With origins dating back to London’s Victorian Age, founder and director of Susie Wilson Finishing School, Susie Wilson, is the epitome of timeless etiquette and deportment. An expert in her field, Susie has presented a vast number of seminars to corporate executives, business organisations, private clubs, and individuals of all ages, coaching her clients in the most up-to-date etiquette and finishing guidance relevant to modern-day society.

With two and a half decades of experience in her field and a corporate background spanning Australia, New Zealand and the USA, Susie is widely recognised as being at the forefront of social and professional protocol and training.

She began her first finishing and deportment school in New Zealand in the early 1990s, educating teens in model development, self-esteem, deportment and body image. She also trained Miss World New Zealand’s Pageant contestants in her art, as well as the 2011 Miss World Australia pageant contestants.

As a trained nurse, Susie’s medical background has provided a window into human psychology and behaviour so she undoubtedly understands why one acts in certain ways, this includes the way they dress and the image they project.

Susie is passionate about educating both adults and children in improving and perfecting their social and professional etiquette and presentation skills so as to become articulate, confident and self-assured.

Ever relevant in today’s society, Susie delivers invaluable training for school-aged children in the areas of peer group pressure and cyber and schoolyard bullying. Furthermore, she is dedicated to ensuring that manners and social graces are remaining in today’s fast-paced media savvy world, where nurturing social skills and self-esteem for children and teens is paramount.

Susie is committed to imparting her etiquette skills and knowledge to adults, necessary for them to achieve their professional and personal best.



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 yesteryear 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 who aspire to be the most polished, well-presented and confident versions of themselves.
