To begin, here’s an excerpt from an interview with Syndi that describe various aspects of our services…


Consider this:
“All people are the same; it’s only their habits that are different.” Confucius.

What this means is…

Your Habits can Become the Social Faux Pas and Business and Political Blunders that make or break your business relationships and deals!

Advanced Etiquette offers a full complement of products and services to educate anyone ages 8 to 88 to avoid social faux pas becoming personal, business, and political blunders.

Business and Hospitality

Does your company conduct business internationally?

Doing business in a global marketplace means you and your teams need to understand cultural differences,*which includes attitudes about interpersonal communication skills, time management, personal space, gift giving, humor, food, and more. Since every country’s rules and customs are different, it’s dangerously easy to offend others without even knowing it, which could mean a loss of business and productivity.

*Cultural awareness is no longer optional.

It’s equally crucial to now learning computer skills

to succeed in business and life.

As a result, whether you are simply polishing workplace civility to “get along” and interact with co-workers or the management team, when conducting business globally, everyone must possess the two most important forms of professional polish… we call EI².

Emotional Intelligence + Etiquette Intelligence = EI²

Advanced Etiquette works with companies to help prepare executives and staff to conduct business at all levels of international interaction.

For over 20 years, we’ve assisted business professionals to overcome interpersonal fears and insecurities to gain poise, confidence, and authority in any business or social situation anywhere in the world.
