Because being comfortable in the workplace is very closely linked to your social skills and leadership skills. This is true from entry-level positions to management roles. So, if you want to brush-up on your business and social etiquette, we are here to encourage, empower and enrich you! For business owners whose reputation depends on their staff presenting well to customers and the public, registering your staff for the Finesse Modern Manners and Professional Skills workshop is a must.


We empower, encourage and enrich those from all walks of life to increase their confidence and reach their goals in the workplace. Our warm and friendly workshops allow everyone to be themselves, while practicing important social skills and professional etiquette. Participants will feel equipped to conduct themselves correctly in most professional settings – from winning the job interview to mastering a fancy business lunch with a client or your boss.

You can’t have one without the other -we offer the perfect blend of social and professional etiquette! Did you know that your future success at work will not necessarily depend on your knowledge, technical skills or talent? That’s right! Despite the heavy investment you have probably already made in your or your children’s education, the most important things are confidence, personality and social skills. We are passionate about shining a light on those areas which are not explicitly taught… we like to call it the ‘Finesse Factor’.

Humour, support, and inspiration! Our interactive workshops explore the basics of issues such as interview skills, social protocol and interpersonal skills, modern manners, fine dining, personal style and grooming, assertiveness and leadership skills.
