Cindy Grosso speaks at colleges and universities on understanding the skill of polish.

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 business world.

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

Colleges are great on academia, but the skill of polish must be part of the silent skill set that is not listed on the resume that will enable college graduates to compete in a very competitive business market.

Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette would like to be a resource for your college/ university to teach the skill of polish. These programs can be conducted for your career center, leadership programs, fraternities and/or sororities, etc.

The most popular programs we offer include topics such as:

  • The Million Dollar Meal
  • Personal Branding
  • First Impressions
  • Communications Excellence
  • Networking
  • The Interview

We offer these programs live and/or online to meet your requirements and budget.
