“Tiffany Nielsen’s dining etiquette workshop was both a fun and informative component to my client dinner. Tiffany was perfect, accessible and knowledgeable about the challenges of modern etiquette, and connected with everyone at dinner-regardless of age or background. Everyone left having learned key pieces regarding dining etiquette and the event still comes up in conversation, months later! Thank you, Tiffany, for making our dinner and educating us on modern dining etiquette!”

“Thank you so much for coming out to our troop meeting. I know the girls really enjoyed it. I had one come in the next day to eat with her family and as I watched her I could tell she was practicing what she learned.”
