  1. Hi Alyson,

    I am interested in more information about your “Success in the Global Arena” seminars. I am the marketing director for a local boutique real estate company and think some of the topics offered would be a wonderful “refresher” course for our agents. I look forward to hearing from you, thank you!

  6. Hello and good evening. I am very interested in seeing if a mini lesson could be offered. First, I am a teacher who is currently teaching persuasive writing using the prompt, “Should elementary schools require an etiquette class prior to moving on to middle school?” We have a lot of mixed opinions out there and we are sending these up to the principal in hopes of encouraging a program be brought to the school on a more permanent basis.

    I am trying to encourage my school to have an etiquette class for their students in 3-5 grade, prior to moving on to middle school. To do this, my class has kind of become the lab rats so to say. I would really like to talk to see if I could get someone out to my classroom, during school, to do a lesson on etiquette maybe three times a week at an hour a day. Time is obviously negotiable.

    This sounds crazy, but I feel this is something that should really be looking into. I work at a title one school so funds are limited. I will be looking for sponsorship on this and really hope that we can make this happen.

    Please feel free to call me, I have planning from 8:45-10:15 and will be available after 2:45. Lets make some magic happen.

      Hi Kristy,

      Irma actually postponed the first class until tonight (last class is now Oct. 30th) so if you would like, you can still sign up and join us for tonight’s first class at the Darby Building at 7pm. The rate is $125. Thanks so much! Aly
