We are Sydney’s first high-end etiquette institution to bring back the tradition of the European Finishing School, exclusively only this time in an accessible, contemporary and modular format.
The Success with Manners International Etiquette, Finishing School and certification program is based on the traditional principles of the finest Swiss Finishing Schools. We train in European Savoir-vivre that extends well beyond basic manners to also include style, image and elegance.Traditionally, finishing schools in Switzerland served young women from aristocratic European families. The purpose was to provide them with teachings on social and cultural etiquette and graces, art, creative development and home management. Over the years women and men have progressed from the dining room to the boardroom, most of these traditional Swiss institutions have closed. In their place, Success with Manners Sydney’s Finishing School introduces modern-day etiquette classes to Australia in a modular format addressing the needs of today’s women and men.
