a few words from ladies who have completed this programme:

  • " I had such a good time doing the Social Etiquette and Empowerment Course online. Each module was presented beautifully by Emma and was a pleasure to watch.

    All eight modules were informative and interesting and very relevant to life today. I really do feel enlightened and well prepared for any occasion that comes my way, safe in the knowledge that I have good etiquette!" 

    Melanie, May 2020

  • "I recently completed the Lady's Social Etiquette & Empowerment course online. The course is full of useful information covering various topics and social settings. The lessons have been broken down into several modules that are easy to follow and enjoyable to watch.

    Also, we were able to email any questions to Emma, which she would always promptly respond to no matter the question.

    Emma's passion for etiquette really shines through. Overall, it is a delightful and highly valuable course."

    Teresa, November 2021

  • "The Emma Dupont School of Etiquette takes an excellent approach to teaching traditional etiquette.

    Emma is an excellent coach and she makes you feel accomplished no matter where you are on your etiquette journey.

    She reminds us of the fundamentals of good manners. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone seeking to broaden their understanding of social and dining etiquette, or to just brush up on skills they already have in these areas!"

    Crismely, November 2020

  • "This online course exceeded expectations. The modules are packed with information, and the structure of the individual modules helps to facilitate retention of the knowledge.

    I often find myself re-reading my notes from the course and am so happy that I can re-watch the videos down the line if needed.


    Shefali, August 2020

  • "Thank you for the excellent instruction on British etiquette. I learned so much about how to be confident in any social setting and about how important etiquette is to the maintenance of the social fabric among people.

    I also learned a lot on the Alumni Society Coaching call about business etiquette for women and managing cross-cultural relationships.

    You are amazingly generous with your knowledge and I am so grateful to have learned about your course. I look forward to future Alumni Society events and deepening my knowledge about social and business etiquette."

    Maria, January 2021

  • "The quality of this course is exquisite. I took this course in person with Emma and taking this course online again was as delightful as her classes in Piccadilly.

    Emma kept her essence and transmitted her knowledge and grace in such a beautiful way that I learnt more techniques with these videos. The level of quality and instruction of this online course matches the depth of in-person training. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to refine my skills online. Emma kindly answers questions via e-mail, and video calls are also an option, so truly the only thing I am missing is Dinner and Afternoon Tea in London with Emma!

    Nora, October 2020

  • The complete course is actually the best investment I have made this year. Mrs Dupont is a very friendly and knowledgeable Etiquette Expert. I consider her as a very inspiring and charming lifestyle coach. A mentor. What an expertise!

    I really enjoyed the video coaching call. I am looking forward to meet up with her in London! During a luncheon or at a fancy gala. I really recommend this course to all the ladies who would love to develop themselves.
