Edwards Etiquette

Civility and Leadership Training for Youth

Welcome to Edwards Etiquette 

Edwards Etiquette is Detroit's leading youth etiquette consulting firm that provides an interactive, thought-provoking, and fun approach to learning social graces, dining protocols and traditional etiquette.  

Since 2008, we have provided children, youth and young adults with the skills and confidence to navigate situations with grace and poise.



Navigating the world with strong social skills can position children to learn more easily.  School is filled with social interactions.

Your child will not only learn how to conduct her/himself in social situations with confidence and politeness, but also improve in their table manners, conversation skills, posture and self-presentation.

This six (6) week course will build your child's confidence by covering what is expected in social settings as well as:

  • Why Manners Matter
  • How to Make and Leave a Positive First Impression
  • Positive and Appropriate Body Language
  • Situational Etiquette; Dining, Parties, Sports, Coming of Age Events, and more...


Have You Ever...

  • Spent the first several minutes of a dinner looking from place setting to place setting, trying to figure out which bread or glass is yours? 
  • Just passed the salt and received a strange glare from everyone at the table? 
  • In a moment of hunger, reached for the bread, water or gravy boat that was just a little too far away? 

When children learn to eat with good manners, they will be less likely to offend, and more likely to impress, when they find themselves in pivotal social situations later on in life. 



Personal presence may be difficult to define, but we all know it when we see it.

Someone walks into the room and people step aside.  Conversation opens up to include them. When they speak, people applaud or chime in.

While it’s often experience that helps a professional get their foot in the door at a new job, it takes more than skill alone to be truly impactful at most organizations and situations.

The way you appear and behave in an employment setting can send a number of different messages to hiring managers and colleagues. Did you know that employees who demonstrate personal presence are often perceived to be more competent and knowledgeable?
