About Social Graces

“Good manners are just a way of showing other people that we have respect for them” – Bill Kelly

Social Graces is an internationally certified etiquette consultancy based in Vancouver, Canada, one of the most dynamic, multicultural and cosmopolitan cities in the world.

We are passionate about teaching you how to improve your poise and confidence in any scenario, while also explaining why proper etiquette is a key element of effective global communication. Good manners can vary from culture to culture. In fact, what is considered polite in one country may be extremely rude in another. We believe everyone deserves a solid foundation in the principles of offering and receiving respect – at home and around the globe.

By sharing the guidelines of interpersonal communication skills, Social Graces unlocks the secrets of success for people who want to climb the corporate ladder, or be more comfortable in social situations. Our youth programming concentrates on positive reinforcement of proper behaviour, which also helps with confidence and self esteem.

As part of our commitment to delivering the highest quality of instruction, our programs are delivered under license from The International Etiquette and Protocol Academy of London.

The pace of modern day life can be hectic. In response, Social Graces offers both scheduled workshops, and programs that can be highly customized to meet individual needs. Some seminars are also available via Skype.

We are Vancouver’s only certified International Business, International Social and International Youth etiquette experts, and we are ready to help you become the best version of yourself.
