Good Manners Go Hand in Hand with Success! 

Welcome to The Manners Advantage! Tampa’s Premier Manners and Etiquette Training Company

Now more than ever, we need to collectively practice social etiquette. Wearing a mask and maintaining distancing is an opportunity to say “I care about you.”

We have missed you and look forward to teaching the following upcoming classes. All students will be required to wear a mask and maintain distance. Please keep in mind that we teach all ages from preschoolers to professionals – athletes, students, interviewees, customer service representatives, college applicants, college graduates…anyone with the desire to polish their life and communication skills, manners and dining etiquette. In what is a very competitive job climate, we customize classes with amazing outcomes!

For those who expect and demand higher standards, we invite you to contact us today. After all, an opportunity may be just a firm handshake (or confident head nod) away.

Learn the life skills necessary for having The Manners Advantage today!
