I’ve always believed that relationships are what matter most, and that you can’t build them without the right balance of consideration, courtesy and civility. 

It’s an outlook on life that started with my principled upbringing and allowed me to work for more than 15 years in Milan at the very heart of fashion and design. Along the way I’ve built relationships both inside and outside each company I’ve worked for and learnt the importance of good manners first-hand. 

I became inspired to share what I learned, so I embarked on a course at The British School of Etiquette and became a certified trainer. As a well-travelled image consultant and etiquette coach, I can show you exactly how flawless communication looks like with courses which are practical and accessible.
