Many English etiquette rules have survived generations and although some believe these are unnecessary, they are very much still a part of the business and high-society world today.
Poise, elegance, self-worth, self-confidence and maturity is a process; it can be worked on and cultivated. The Laura Windsor Etiquette Academy takes traditional values and gives them a contemporary relevance for all ladies out there who feel a little over-whelmed with the pressures of society.
Audrey Hepburn believed that the happiest people are the most beautiful - not in looks but in a way that makes other people feel valued and feel good about life.
There is just something about a person who has poise and elegance, not just in a visual way. People gravitate towards you, respect you and want to spend time with you.
