The society children are growing up in today is increasingly technology driven—and this significantly decreases the need for face-to-face social interactions in children. While technology will be omnipresent in their lives, teaching children an interpersonal skill set will secure them not only a more successful professional life but personal as well.
The Manners Matter program is designed for children aged 8-14 years old, and will teach them how to make a memorable first impression. First impressions are critical as you only have a few seconds to sculpt someone’s first judgement of you, which can be accomplished with solid eye contact, shaking hands, and properly introducing yourself. Other ways to make a memorable impression is offering assistance where needed, and of course putting your phone away during times like dinner.
Good manners are memorable, and are the building blocks of social and professional life.
Some of the elements covered in the Manners Matter course include:
The course includes: Etiquette book, Goody bag and a Certificate of Completion.
Lynda helped me realize the overwhelming amount of black clothes I had in my closet. I hadn’t realized how ‘washed out’ they made me appear until I started integrating more color. In addition I thought that I could wear any color and hadn’t given enough thought to what looked best. Lynda taught me to be far more discriminating in opting for the colors that revived my overall look.Patricia H.Psychologist
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed your Manners Matter course. It was great to see her that enthusiastic, and was even teaching me things afterwards. Her posture improved after her first day with you. She was also proud to be able to teach her younger sibling as well. We will absolutely be taking your class again in the future.S. CoomerParent
Lynda’s ‘Professional Etiquette’ course is an absolute must-have for any company wanting to ensure its representatives understand proper business-world behaviour. Front-line employees create our first impression to potential clients, which is why I consider it utterly essential that they are not only polished, but also confident in all situations.
Lynda Jean presents what can be a quite difficult topic in a way that is both easy to grasp and approachable. She makes people feel at ease so that individuals can feel perfectly comfortable to ask questions without any feelings of awkwardness.
I can personally attest that this course delivers practical results, and I feel total confidence that my employees now have the skills needed to represent my firm in an ultra-professional way. On top of that, my staff feel more confident in both social and business interactions.Chantal Desloges, LL.B., C.S.Barrister & Solicitor | Law Firm Principal
Despite us spending only a few hours together, your voice rings in my head every time I dress for work or shop for new clothing items. You helped significantly in simplifying the process—and in making it more enjoyable! Or at minimum less pain inducing than it was before. My wardrobe is especially important in order for me to maintain an image of professionalism and respect—and I’ve realized that the simple tips you taught me empower me to achieve this, not only easily but inexpensively.Lee G.Business Consultant
When Lynda went through my wardrobe with me, her eye for what worked and what didn't work helped me tremendously. What remained became the 'bones' of my wardrobe and I felt as if a huge depressing burden had been lifted from my shoulders. It's like losing weight. It is so much easier now to make smarter fashion decisions. Now I get compliments on what I'm wearing.Helen W.Senior Designer
Our company, like many like it, face a challenge when it comes to our younger staff—including how to properly define what proper business dress is in today’s business world. We are so happy we turned to Lynda Jean. Through one of her ‘Lunch n’ Learn programs she taught our team practical workplace attire advice, in a down-to-earth way—without being condescending, or crossing any HR boundaries.
I am happy to say that not only have we seen improvement in our staff’s workplace attire, but we also received very positive feedback about her presentation and the experience.Michelle CapiobancoManager, New Business Development
We operate a first-class service to our High Net Worth clients and, consequently, it is critical that all of our various staff members are well trained in proper etiquette.
Lynda Jean’s four-hour tutorial was a very helpful way to teach our team proper dining skills, courtesies and workplace dress and behavior. Lynda Jean presents an informative, pleasant and very useful set of skills that we all enjoyed and learned from.
I highly recommend her tutorial as both introductory training and on-going refresher courses for everyone from new employees to Senior Executives. Her course includes both an e-book and reference guide as excellent take-aways.Joanne Dereta, MBA, CFP, RFP, CIM, TEPManaging Director & Principal

Mirror Show Management chose Lynda Jean to be our “WOW factor” at this year’s Exhibitor Show. The concept fit our customer’s needs very well, as our goal was to show them how we always make them look better. Lynda was extremely helpful before the event and at the event she was fantastic to discuss custom color ranges with each and every customer. The customer’s loved the experience and couldn’t stop talking about Lynda’s professionalism and how much she helped them to understand how they could look better. She was early every day, worked tirelessly and always had a smile on her face. MSM couldn’t have been any happier and MSM would definitely hire her again in the future.Mirror Show ManagementWebster, NY
Lynda is knowledgeable warm and genuine. She spends an incredible amount of time with you, and provides an invaluable detailed and personalized plan from start to finish. The money she saved me with her recommendations more than paid for her services. If you are looking for an impactful change in your style, how you feel about and carry yourself and the impression you make, I would highly recommend Lynda. Day one I was reaping the rewards of my time spent with her.Patti D.Wardrobe Consulting
