The English Manner is the UK’s most established etiquette, protocol and household management consultancy. Founded in 2001, we have run seminars, courses and training sessions in many countries and have worked alongside both royal and diplomatic households, leading corporations and businesses, schools, universities and private individuals.

Our etiquette and protocol training is extensive. Whether for a deputy-CEO, wishing to add unparalleled social skills to gain a competitive edge in the workplace, a corporate partner who needs to up their game when it comes to entertaining or an individual wishing to increase their confidence, knowledge and skills in social settings, our pool of highly knowledgeable expert tutors will assist.

We are retained by several of the world’s largest and most notable private households, estates, yachts and aircraft, providing tailored training solutions and systems on a bespoke basis.
