Melissa Leonard is a certified business etiquette and international protocol consultant who has worked with Fortune 100 companies as well as private clients. In addition, she offers courses in etiquette for children and young adults. Leonard believes that children's success in life is directly related to what we instill in them now. It may be something as simple as knowing how to shake hands, how to introduce themselves to adults, showing gratitude and respect for others, or even which fork and glass is appropriate to use. This knowledge will help them handle themselves with grace and confidence now and in the future. Leonard's program, Dining for Children/Young Adults, includes three two-hour sessions on introductions/manners, dining etiquette, and gratitude/thank-yous, plus a one-hour progress follow-up.
