Tania, May 2022

"I was born in a family where good manners were appreciated. I've learned etiquette at the University as part of a special program for managers. But Emma elevated my understanding of etiquette to level up and add more confidence and elegance.

It was comfortable to learn a new lesson every month because I had enough time to absorb all the knowledge.

Emma was charming, modest, and sensitive even though she was highly professional and really loved what she did."
