Minding Manners International is Europe’s leading Accredited and Certified Etiquette & Protocol Consultancy, Modular Finishing School Academy and Cultural & Savoir-vivre Specialist. In 2003, Minding Manners launched in the heart of Paris, France on the Rue du Faubourg St. Honoré. We were the first institution to bring back the tradition of the European Finishing School, only this time in an accessible and contemporary format. In 2007, our relocation to London, England was due to the ever-increasing demand of discerning individuals seeking more than domestic etiquette knowledge; they demanded the ultimate in truly international etiquette and protocol expertise delivered by globally renowned professionals who have lived and worked among numerous cultures. In 2015 we became Minding Manners International, reflecting the true globalism of our brand and in 2018 we became a division of the esteemed International Etiquette & Protocol Academy of London, which has a network of Trained and Certified Consultants in more than 60 countries and territories, making us the most established and trusted etiquette consultancy in the United Kingdom.

Our History

Minding Manners was Europe’s first consultancy to offer international social etiquette training. We launched in the heart of Paris, France on the Rue du Faubourg St Honoré in 2003, being the first institution to bring back the tradition of the European Finishing School, only this time in an accessible, contemporary and modular format. Our relocation to London was due to the ever-increasing demand of discerning individuals, corporations and parents seeking more than domestic etiquette knowledge; they demand the ultimate in international etiquette and protocol knowledge delivered by internationally renowned professionals who have lived and worked in, and with, numerous cultures.

Our Location

Our London training venues are located in the exclusive Kensington region that was home to Queen Victoria and Prince Consort Albert as well as Diana, Princess of Wales and currently the residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Every step taken is graced with Victorian history, from Kensington Palace and the Royal Albert Hall to the Albert Memorial, Hyde Park and the Victoria and Albert Museum. This privilege allows our clients the exclusive pleasure of experiencing etiquette in its birth place with tutorial insights and hands-on practical experiences second to none.
