"Mrs. Powery is inspiring as she is influential.
Our students loved her presentation on becoming a "Polished Professional". She
is very knowledgeable and is more than willing to share said
knowledge with the next generation. Applying the skills, tips, and training the students and staff have learned through this
training will definitely assist with creating their brand. We wish Ms. Powery much success and recommend The Etiquette &
Image International Institute for future trainings.

series on interviewing skills, networking, dining etiquette, and

It was quite an eye-opening experience hearing Carolyn Powery, MS Etiquette Coach speak Friday when I attended my Trio Welcome Back Forum at Palm Beach State College (Lake Worth Campus). She exposed the importance of being on top of my body language at all times since our body language makes up about 55% of our first Impression on someone. She also stressed the importance of college students establishing a personal brand early by cleaning up social media accounts, using any occasion to network, perfecting their handshake, and even starting a personal blog. Hence, making you appear more marketable than other applicants to potential employers.
Thank you, Mrs. Powery, for coming to my college, and I would definitely recommend anyone to sign-uo for your etiquette workshops! Stefan Douglas
