New December Workshops — Save Your Spot!
Exclusive In-Person Children’s Workshops
A recent UK study revealed that children have lost basic skills such as how to eat with a fork and knife since the start of the pandemic. It’s no surprise that these and other vital attributes – including how to make simple conversation and socialize with others – have suffered.
To help our youth revitalize some of these lost norms, we’re pleased to offer a safe in-person experience to ensure they maintain success and thrive. Real-life examples and interactive exercises are part of the 3-hour program plus a multi-course luncheon is served to practice their dining skills and table manners just in time for the holidays.
In this workshop, here’s a taste of what your children will learn:
- Laying the Foundation – From The Golden Rules to The Magic Words
- Presentation Matters – Why posture, grooming & clothing makes a difference
- Communication Styles – How to speak, listen, write a note & type to text the right way
- Dining with Decorum – From the most casual situation to the most formal setting
- Holiday Manners – During a pandemic and evergreen guidelines
Boys & girls ages 6-12 | No more than 8 kids per class | Select Sunday, Nov 29th or Dec 20th and register today!

“My boys left their first session with big smiles, having had fun and met new friends! I was impressed how much they retained!
For those who seek a personal, private learning environment
Get in touch with Lisa to talk about options for private, one-on-one coaching for young individuals (or for a small group of friends or family).
Lisa can create a personalized plan to help get your child ready for literally anything — from social graces to dining skills to school interviews!
Private coaching sessions offered online. In-person option also available.
Social Intelligence Right from the Start
Lisa’s programs provide kids and teens with the social intelligence to feel comfortable and confident in every situation. By acquiring and practicing these indispensable life tools, students learn to tune in — experiencing improved awareness of themselves and their surroundings, strengthening relationships with family and peers, and increasing their self‑esteem both at home and at school.”
“The students I spoke with couldn’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed the evening and how much they enjoyed having a professional like you come to campus to share your knowledge. Phenomenal as always!”
“A modern take on old fashioned manners. Lisa’s approach is youthful and evolved, yet still produces results that would gain the stamp of approval from grandparents. Her lovely sense of humor makes things fun and engaging, all while teaching traditional etiquette. We have participated in her ‘Manners Bootcamp,’ Cotillion program, Virtual Dining Etiquette dinners, and individual instruction to cultivate conversational skills. Our experience has been wonderful!”
“My daughter attended your ‘Standout Interviews’ class and really enjoyed it. She did a great job on her interviews in part, we believe, because of your class, and got accepted to Polytechnic, Marlborough, and Harvard-Westlake, where she will attend in the fall. Thank you again for your great class.”
“After a sleepover, the mother of my son’s friend was so impressed. She went on and on about what a gentleman our eight-year-old was. He sat up straight, used utensils like an adult, and said ‘please’ and ‘thank you‘ all the time. Thank you for partnering with families to teach the importance of manners to live a more gracious and thoughtful life.”
