Being in my thirties, I thought I knew everything that I needed to about dining – turns out, I was wrong. Completing this course was very easy – the learning was broken up in to manageable sections meaning that I could complete it at my own pace. Thanks to Sandra for such great advice.

I have been to a few interviews in recent months that were over a meal and struggled on how to engage with my interviewers. This course really improved my confidence in dining and engaging with people in this situation. Thanks very much.

Thank you for giving me such great advice on how to communicate while dining and get my ideas across. The table manners section was particularly interesting as I learned many things that I did not know. The course is broken down into manageable one-hour sections.

I was not aware that I needed so much help with dining etiquette until I took this class. I have never hosted an event before but thanks for the great advice from Sandra, I am now excited to host my first dinner party. I would recommend this course to everyone looking to entertain or impress at social events.
