About The English Manner
The English Manner is a unique British-based company with associate offices in Toronto and New York. Established in 2001 and incorporating over 25 years of experience in protocol and etiquette, we have worked with the leading hotel in the Middle East, the Ritz-Carlton in Washington DC, the Four Seasons Hotel group and Orient Express hotels to name a few of our corporate clients, putting together comprehensive assessment, training and mentoring programmes for management and staff.
Noted for our attention to detail, our private clients are spread across the age range, from young children learning social skills for the first time to relocating and aspiring business executives, company Chairmen who wish to brush up on much used but perhaps tired social skills, and international families who are setting up homes and households in unfamiliar territory, weighed down by the perception of foreign protocol and dos and don’ts.
Alexandra Messervy, the founder of The English Manner, began her career in the Royal Household of Her Majesty The Queen and our tutors are drawn from the very finest in their field. With over twenty five years experience in the luxury hospitality market, we are able to advise and consult with staff planning, operation practices and personalised training. We also offer premium search and recruiting services within the luxury hotel and residential markets.
The English Manner works with clients to reinforce ancient traditions of manners with modern practices, to create standards of excellence which are second to none, beyond comparison with any rival, which exceed any expectation, and which set the standard to which others can only aspire.
