For more in-depth training on our most popular topics, adults, 18 and older, can take an intensive course on select Saturdays. The course is open to local, out-of-state and international men and women.
There are two Intensive Programs. The Original Intensive covers business and networking, social graces, dining etiquette and style etiquette. The second, is The Duchess Effect, which includes British and American dining, social graces and style etiquette.
Both programs cover a wide range of etiquette categories including, but not limited to, dressing (from casual to black tie) and first impressions, formal dining, posture, deportment, business etiquette and networking. The Course is divided into modules and taught in interactive sessions by etiquette expert Myka Meier and several guest speakers. See below for a description of topics.
The Program includes a multi-course lunch and refreshments. Pricing is based on location and topic. Click the registration links below for additional details.
Due to the pandemic The Plaza is closed. When the hotel reopens we will post new course dates for 2021.
We are offering an abridged version of The Duchess Effect course as a pre-recorded webinar. To learn more about this online program and register for it, click here.
