table manners, college to corporate and everything in between...

We've been told this course is a game changer and we couldn't agree more.  There is nothing worse than second guessing yourself during an important moment.  Knowing host and guest duties, navigation of silverware and glassware, napkin etiquette, silent signals to a well trained waitstaff will set you apart from others.  This is how you rise to the occasion! 

You will put to rest any uneasy or anxious fears.  We cover everything from "soup to nuts."  This is truly one of those "must" courses in life and a priceless gift to yourself and others. 


New Hire tRainings

Corporate culture and identity is something that needs to be explained in detail to all new hires.  Expectations can only be met when clearly laid out.  We skillfully and respectfully teach and train new hires to be the best version of themselves for their personal and professional success which parlays into happy employers and impressed clients. Who doesn't love a win-win?

interviewing skills 

Whether you're new to the workforce or looking to ace an interview at an academic institution, an internship or new place of employment, our goal is prepare and send you into your interview feeling confident. 

Don’t reserve your best behavior for special occasions. You can’t have two set of manners, two social codes—one for those you admire and want to impress, another for those whom you consider unimportant. You must be the same to all people.
— Lillian Eichler Watson


Being in the present moment, knowing how to destress, decompress and undo a racing mind is a valuable tool to master.  When Forbes magazine asked some of the most successful and influential people of our times what their secret to success was, overwhelmingly the one practice that showed up on the list more than any other was mindfulness.  This came in many forms including meditation, prayer, stillness and gratitude.  This practice costs nothing and offers everything... opening up an entire realm from which you can then operate peacefully and successfully.
