What Patricia's Clients are Saying:

“Patricia brought into a fruition a vision for Inclusive Student Excellence at UNC. The experience was once-in-a-lifetime for many students and still is a hot topic for conversation. Patricia was the perfect inaugural keynote speaker for our College to Corporate program!”

Ada Wilson Suitt
J.D. Director of Inclusive Student Excellence / University of North Carolina

“I thought it was very valuable. Though you cannot possibly take away everything, I think there were some key takeaways that I will certainly roll into my daily life. Inspire would be a great venue for her, because she would be especially “inspiring” to women and they would enjoy interacting with her and hearing her story in general. A speaker like Patricia is invaluable and something I took as a privilege to sit through.

Renee Buzek
Strategic Account Manager / Moen

Dear Patricia, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!! The evening was amazing. You are full of love to share and that was very clear in the atmosphere.

From the boardroom to barbeque, your “open sign” is always on.

What are you telling your colleagues, classmates, and potential clients? Patricia’s knowledge and services shed new light on modern manners for business leaders, professional athletes, and young adults in real life situations.

“For more than twenty years I have helped people feel more confident and at ease in their everyday lives by teaching them about etiquette, protocol, and soft social skills. Whether I’m doing one-on-one coaching or group classes, writing blogs, visiting the White House, or appearing in my nationally syndicated ‘Manners Minute’ television segments, I always focus on the same core principles: kindness as opposed to formality, and relationships as opposed to rules. I’ve worked with thousands of people who were suffering needlessly with exact same problem, and I’ve been able to help most of them put an end to their social anxiety for good! Now they are living fuller, richer, more successful lives.” ~Patricia Rossi

Everyday Etiquette

The secret to self-confidence is to know and understand the rules of social engagement before you’re in the middle of an uncomfortable situation.

Do you know how to:

  • Shine at a networking event?
  • Write a Thank you Note?
  • Shake hands?
  • RSVP to an invitation?
  • Say no to a request for a favor?
  • Use social media with clarity?
  • Say the perfect thing at a funeral?
  • Smoke a cigar in public?

Etiquette isn’t just something you need on formal occasions. It’s a blueprint for how to behave every day, in every situation, to make interactions between people smooth and pleasant, with no ruffled feathers, misunderstandings or hurt feelings. It helps you smoothly transition from college to corporate life, and from professional obligations to personal ones.
