He who in his commerce with people observes their manners lives off of interest, he who disregards them sticks to his principal.

Hugo von Hofmannsthal

Regardless of the profession, position, gender or age, every person should have and constantly improve skills useful in everyday life as well as in official and exceptional circumstances. These skills certainly include knowledge of good manners and etiquette. In today's world, which is rapidly becoming a global village, a working knowledge of the principles of savoir-vivre and intercultural differences – or lack thereof – is often a decisive factor determining success or failure. Easy behaviour during greeting, introducing oneself, talking and behaving at the table, knowledge of the dress code or cultural differences is a ticket to a better perception of a given person by the environment and makes her/him a desirable participant in any business or social meeting.

In the past, the principles of savoir-vivre were used primarily during meetings of people belonging to high society and accompanied the work of diplomats. Today, many people feel the need to learn more about etiquette and good manners in order to feel more comfortable in both everyday and emergency situations. Our trainings will help you decode the notes appearing on invitations, seat guests at the table in accordance with the principle of precedence, or choose the right cutlery and use them in the right way.
