Welcome to Elegant Manners International

For the 700 years since English bishop and chancellor, William of Wykeham (1324 – 1404), first famously declared, “Manners Maketh Man”, manners have set the standard for human behavior and helped formed the foundation for personal and professional success. No matter who you are or what you do, your manners have a direct impact on your professional and social success.



Elegant Manners is a leading internationally certified etiquette consultancy. Our programs are based on a variety of premises from traditional English etiquette and the contemporary demands of modern society – with a special focus on building self-esteem and confidence. Self-esteem is the value we place in ourselves, and having it fosters a positive outlook of our lives. Elegance, decorum, confidence and a cosmopolitan view on the world uniquely distinguishes you in all that you do.


“We hear of a future where relationships are key and people are valued, where not just the task well performed but the life well lived is what counts.” –[Francis Hesselbein]
