I am the principal Coach and Trainer at Polished Manners etiquette school. I have successfully helped children, teenagers and adults refine and develop their social and professional skills through my etiquette classes and afternoon tea events. I also provide private tuition, some of my clients are high net worth families and expatriates, including visitors from other countries. I have been featured in television and radio programmes and contributed to several newspaper and magazine articles.
Previously, I worked in various corporate administrative, customer services and retail roles. Originally I trained as a dress designer and fashion merchandiser. Later I studied social sciences with the ‘Open University’. I also acquired various childcare qualifications whilst operating out of school clubs and holiday camps.
I decided to train as an etiquette coach because of my experience working with children, some were lacking in basic good manners. Becoming an etiquette coach was a natural progression as I had always been interested in learning more about etiquette and always keen on instilling and encouraging good manners.
I gained etiquette certification having completed my training with one of the leading training institutions, ‘The English Manner’. I also received international certification from ‘The Etiquette Survival Group’ and ‘The Social Skills Company’ in the United States of America. In addition to my qualifications, I bring a wealth of life experiences that compliment my etiquette classes for adults and children.
