Children's Etiquette Luncheon  
Three hours

A fun, hands-on approach to a very comprehensive fine dining program while also teaching the value of respect for others in all aspects of life. Activities plus a three-course lunch help children learn proper introductions, dining etiquette and other social graces. This is a unique opportunity to build confidence and social skills that make everyday instructions easier – and bring benefits that last a lifetime. For boys and girls aged 8-13. 

Business Etiquette Luncheon 
Two hours – plus a 30 minute discussion

The Business Etiquette Luncheon offers program participants the opportunity to refresh and refine their dining etiquette skills during a four-course lunch – complete with information on place setting standards, utensil handling, passing protocol, and mealtime manners for hosts and guests. This course is designed to improve communication and presentation skills to maximize business goals and enhance relationships with clients, employers, associates and friends. This class includes instruction on etiquette related subjects such as: introductions, greetings, the power of positive lasting impressions, networking, making conversation and correspondence. A handbook, summarizing the course content, is offered as part of the event package. 

Our Etiquette Instructor, Bethany Miller (pictured above, lower left), holds a bachelor of science degree in elementary education and is also a graduate of the prestigious American School of Protocol in Atlanta, Georgia. Motivated by her love of teaching, she established Doors of Success School of Etiquette to further assist youth and adults with their personal development and social skills.

She is a skilled educator working with students in elementary school, high school, college and the corporate world. Ms. Miller has an engaging personality and makes learning the finer details of manners and social skills memorable.
