What they say

I am a USC student who had the privilege of being at your presentation. It was so great to see someone like you remind and teach us about the importance of etiquette – it does, in truth, speak louder than our words. Besides a teacher of etiquette, you are a great motivator. Needless to say, I did learn many things yesterday which will help me better navigate the social aspect of my business ventures.Rubens De AbreuStudentUniversity of South Carolina
Your etiquette presentation in our Applied Leadership class was a great way to tie together many of the concepts we covered.  The students felt there was real value in what you offered, and encouraged me to include you in future classes.C. SkipperProfessorThe Citadel

According to a study conducted by the Stanford Research Institute, Harvard University, and the Carnegie Foundation, 85% of your professional success is attributed to your social skills, or polish and only 15% from your technical knowledge.

When you compare two equally qualified employment candidates, the skills of polish they have acquired through the years will provide a competitive advantage when competing in the real world.

If polish is so important, how much time have you invested in the understanding of this skill?

Hopefully your journey has included learning this expertise. A journey, we call the journey of civility. The problem is, most of us have never heard of this journey, and when we enter the professional world, we are expected not only to know of this journey, but to perform well according to its standards, called polish.

Our programs and books are developed for the student or professional preparing for success.

The benefits realized from understanding the skills provided in the materials are some of the greatest investments you can make in your career, relationships, and quality of life.

There are three options of which we can help you to begin the Journey of Polish! Read more
