Refining Your Social Graces & Image for Success
“We brought Carolyn of Etiquette Touch in to customize an onsite workshop for the (11-14 year old) participants of Delta Academy.
Carolyn did an outstanding job creating interactive sessions with the girls immediatly applying the lessons covered on table manners in a
social setting which invluded table setting, handling utensils and appropriate dining conversations. The girls were very interested and
actively participated in the exercises geared to their age group. I highly recommend Caroly for etiquette related assignments.

your competition off the court.” Topics of discussions were First Impressions, Social Media & Online Presence, Cell Phone -
