Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette is offering The Polished Professional online!!

According to a study conducted by Harvard, Stanford and Carnegie Learning Institute says that your success in business is attributed:

15% in your technical skills,
85% in your social skills.

Social skills, personal skills, people skills or what I term “polish.” If polish is so important then how much time have you spent on this skill?

The Polish Professional allows you to learn the skill of polish right from your computer…right now…right where you sit….instantly from the comfort and convenience of your own computer.

Professional Table Manners is not a book or streaming video. It is a state of the art, interactive course that has audio and visual that speaks directly to you….with talking text, click and drag, question and action, actual setting of the place setting. Unlike a video that you just watch, or a book you just read, this is a course that involves participation from you….as you learn more by doing than by watching. It is an achievement, because it is a course that you pass with a final test. You also receive a certificate that is suitable for framing. It can be repeated as often as needed.
