SOCIAL ETIQUETTE

BE THE BEST, AND LET OTHERS REMAIN SECOND BEST


The program is based on the long-standing traditional principles of the best Swiss finishing schools. Our training is one of the most comprehensive in the world. Style, elegance, social spirit and a cosmopolitan view of the world distinguish you in everything you do. In all cultures, we judge each other according to our behavior, be it in food, fun, appearance, posture, or handshake. It is from these details that the people you meet will read your level of education, background and social intelligence. The aim of this course is to take your social intelligence to the highest level and teach you to be the best version of yourself in any situation and to have a sensitive and responsive approach to others. The correct use of a napkin is of course important, but it is also equally important to learn how to fluidly adapt to the environment, maintain self-control and be able to communicate with confidence and trustworthiness at any particular moment or in any situation.
