Section 1: The basics of etiquette

The history of etiquette. How did it came about and are there still things valid in the 21st century?


Why would we need etiquette in the first place? Is it not a set of old rules?

No, it gives you a lot of opportunities in society.


Many times have we been asked this question. What is the difference between etiquette and protocol. Some even think they are the same...


An image can say a thousand words. Yes, very true. Body language can tell you much more than the words themselves.


Have you ever wondered why presidents are always looking that sharp? Are so well organized? You will disover the secret in this lecture.

Section 2: Wardrobe

Make a good first impression by having a look at your wardrobe. We give you tips and hints to care for your clothing.


Can you wear any tie your want? Do you? Well, even certain ties are 'forbidden' to wear... have a look!


Shoes, a womans' best friend! Learn on how to care for them and let them live longer. We guarantee it!! Oh, and gentleman, you should of course take care of your shoes.


White tie, black tie... what is the difference? What to wear to the oscars? Is it really a tie? How do my partner get dressed when I'm in a tuxedo?

Section 3: Dining etiquette

The lost art of writing... When was the last time you took a moment to write an invitation? With our set of protocol rules, you'll never make a mistake again.


Who sits where at the table? Can I put my mother in law far away from me?


What to do with the napkin, how to hold the glass and how to eat bread are only a few of the table manners discussed here...


Snails!!! oh no!

Others would say: mmmmm.... but... how do you eat them?

How not to offend other people when having a difficult type of food to eat?


Simple. Red wine for meat, white for fish... euh, no. Not in the 21st century... we'll teach you on how to match your wine with any dish.

Section 4: Social etiquette

How do you introduce a colonel to a general? Or... is it the other way around?


Do I go first up the stairs as a lady when showing a gentleman around the house? What if I leave the restaurant, is it him that should go first?


Ladies, be at your best with our tips on make-up, perfume and much more...


Gentlemen, lets have a chat about how to behave as a real gentleman.
