Thank you to everyone who attended our first ever National Good Manners Day USA!  The event was a great success as children and their parents participated in a number of child-friendly activities ranging from arts & crafts, to face painting and a drum circle all while celebrating the importance of good manners!  A special thank you to our terrific sponsors and contributors for all their generous donations.  And, congratulations to our lucky raffle winners Darlene Hoyer, Sandy Sinanian, Lola Ross and Cate & David Miller. Next year promises to be even more spectacular as we intend to celebrate the occasion on a grand scale in our native Beverly Hills.  

"Manners Survey" 

Don't delay, there's still time to participate in our "Manners Survey".  Take a moment and enter your chance to win a Flip Video Mino Series Camcoder!  Simply click here to voice your opinion.  Results coming soon!

Preliminary Findings 

Not to our surprise, our preliminary findings have shown 94.5% of survey takers believe that having good manners and being polite are important in getting along in today's world.  If this is truly a reflection of how we feel, then let's strive to be a bit more polite, a bit more thoughtful and a bit more kind in the coming year.  This will not only make a huge difference in our overall interactions with others, but will also help to ensure a more positive future for ourselves as a nation.  

Show Me the Manners!   

Don't stop there, put your words into action by enrolling in one of our many course offerings for adults and children this Fall/Winter season.  We have a number of programs and curriculums to satisfy your needs whether you are interested in improving your personal communications, professional dealings, corporate interactions or familial relations.  Visit the Class Dates section of our website for a complete schedule and details.
Wishing all of our children and families a very safe and happy return as they embark on a new school year!  

Very best,

Business Lunch   

"The Business Lunch" Business Etiquette for Professionals  

Today more business is conducted over restaurant tables than in offices because it is at the dining table where relationships are solidified and the bridges of trust and understanding are constructed. Students graduating from the top business schools, as well as seasoned executives, are returning to the table to learn their do's and don'ts because to be successful in business one must also be proficient in all aspects of table dining.   


The Business Lunch program educates participants on the  importance of positive first impressions in the business world and covers all the skills of the table during a 5-course luncheon dining tutorial. 


Sign up for yourself or contact us to arrange for a private group tutorial for your business or office!
