Research in social psychology has revealed that most of us form lasting impressions of others within thirty seconds of meeting them.

When people meet you for the first time they will use subtle cues, like tone of voice, body language and the cut of your suit, to decide whether you are smart, capable and worthy of respect.  Their first impression will shape their interactions with you from that moment on.

Graduates of The Etiquette School's Professional Imaging class are singing its praises.  Read on to hear about what some of our graduates are saying about the program.

Philise C. says,

I decided to take Dianne Marsch's Professional Imaging class before entering the workplace and it was the best decision I ever made. I have learned so much not only how to handle difficult situation in a gracious way, how to host a dinner,how to make a great first impression, how to communicate effectively,but most importantly I have learned a great deal about myself and thanks to the personalize profile Dianne provided me with I even know what type of career best suit my personality.

I feel more confident and as Dianne herself loves to say" Etiquette is the art of making people in your surrounding feel great, comfortable and important from the least important to the most powerful."

I would recommend this Professional Imaging class to anyone especially young adults. Dianne has so much information to offer that she should have a TV show dedicated to the so many topics she covers in her class.


Bill G. says,

I worked for the same company for almost 20 years and had the title and 6-digit salary that went with it. The company downsized and they laid me off and terminated my job. I was devastated and extremely depressed. I lost not only my position, title, and salary, but my identity. I lacked the confidence, motivation, and skills to know how to proceed. After many interviews and not being contacted for the second interview, I contacted Dianne Marsch, with the Etiquette School of Manhattan.

She knew immediately how to help me, and customized a program to meet my needs with her 5 step reinvention program for someone in their fifties. She was willing to work with me on an individualized basis because I didn't want anyone to hear my story. Ms. Marsch has a wealth of knowledge to share and her expertise and professionalism surpassed my expectations. After making the necessary changes suggested by Ms. Marsch, I am working in a new career position, with a new title, and adjusting to the new environment. Life is challenging and exciting again.

If you want to learn from the best person in the industry, and who has the wisdom and experience to help you accomplish your goals, contact Ms. Marsch.
