Stefanie, June 2018

"I took the Ladies Etiquette & Empowerment Course and absolutely loved it. My favourite things were the personalised feedback and Emma's approach to training. Throughout the course, Emma was always there to give us encouragement and constructive feedback. She was also always willing to answer our questions.

Emma also focuses on enhancing our natural grace and elegance instead of producing cookie cutters. I finished the course feeling more like 'me', as I had slowly lost the social/situational discomfort that I think just came from not knowing what to do.

Overall, the curriculum was highly informative and relevant to my life, and the classes were well-organised and encouraging. Truly cannot recommend enough."

"I was blown away by the quality of the online course and by Emma's unique approach to etiquette and elegance. I can honestly say that my experience exceeded expectations. The online course is detailed and imparts a great deal of information.

Moreover, the modules are wonderfully formatted (with videos, pictures, and notes) so that the student is in the best position to retain the information.

For somebody who is short on time or who lives abroad, rest assured that the online course will teach you A LOT!

Thank you, Emma!"

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU COMPLETE THE COURSE?

In addition to the benefits detailed above, you will also be invited to join The Alumni Society Etiquette Events in London, UK.

While attending an etiquette class is an excellent first step towards creating new opportunities for business and social situations, many skills learnt can be lost over time without practice and reinforcement. The Alumni Society provides an opportunity to continue practicing and developing these skills with other like-minded ladies in a safe and friendly environment led by Emma.

Ola, November 2021

"Emma is an amazing woman and a true professional. Communication with her was always easy; she responded quickly, helped with all sorts of questions that popped up during the module and gave useful tips on different subjects.

I will definitely come back to this lifetime access course as it covers lots of social topics and has practical lessons on how to behave, walk, and react on different occasions."

 Hermy, March 2021

"The way Emma teaches British etiquette makes it easy to understand that the spirit of each of these polite gestures is based on politeness rather than mere technicality.

I can assure you that thanks to the experience, good disposition, and, above all, kindness with which she transmits her knowledge, this exceptional course stands out from the rest."
