The Definition of Etiquette

The philosophy of etiquette is timeless and everlasting, whereas manners – the outward expression of the underlying principles of etiquette – are ever-changing. Manners, by their very nature, adapt to the times. While today’s manners are often situational, tailored to particular circumstances and the expectations of those around us, they remain a combination of common sense, generosity of spirit, and a few specific guidelines or fluid “rules” that help us interact thoughtfully. And as fluid, as manners are, they all rest on the same fundamental principles of etiquette consideration, respect, and honesty.

Susie is dedicated

I am dedicated to providing all our clients with the most up-to-date etiquette and finishing training relevant to today's modern society.

I believe that leadership should be demonstrated through role modelling, respectful behaviour and encouraging quality improvement, to maintain high standards. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes 

Susie Wilson, Founder/CEO
