William Hanson

Based in London, William’s work sees him teach in the UK and all over the world, including in Europe, America, China, south-east Asia and GCC countries. He is a trusted advisor and trainer to many official households, embassies, businesses and academic institutes.

He is a regular contributor to global media as an etiquette expert and believes good manners and etiquette are based on common sense and should be universal.
