Julie's etiquette course always leaves our students and alumni with more confidencefor networking and attending events. 

She teaches attendees so much more than simply which fork to use — but also how to be comfortable and gracious in a variety of formal situations. University courses only go so far, and Julie helps bridge the professional development gap by providing valuable information in anengaging, accessible and welcoming format.

Just wanted to thank you once again for such a great presentation last night!

You are, by far, the best Etiquette & Protocol Consultant/teacher we have worked with and I am so happy that our students, plus myself, had an opportunity to learn from you. The students were quite satisfied. 

The feedback looks great! In their words, the workshop was captivating, insightful and fun! 

Personally, I was impressed by the way you approached each topic with ease using relatable personal anecdotes and such a professionally prepared PowerPoint Presentation. It was clear that you had given the material some thought- being mindful of your audience.

The results showed!

On behalf of Concordia alumni, I appreciate you!
Rose Wangechi, Alumni Officer, Student Programs, Concordia University 

It was a GREAT experience and I’m really inspired to take more care in promoting myself, my team and my employer. You and Julie have given us some great tools that we can use going forward. You both were a pleasure to work with.

Side note:  My wife is completely OK with me picking up the outfit (SWEET!). 

Cheers again.  I had a blast!

It was pleasure having Julie our Dining Etiquette workshop! In my estimation, and judging by the lineup of students asking questions at the end of the presentation, she brought the event to a new level.

Julie’s enthusiasm and warm personality lent itself to helping new graduates transition from Backpack-to-Briefcase.  Her tips on how to introduce yourself, dress for success, and create a presence at a corporate event were ideal for young professionals seeking to create a professional image.  The results of the workshop were apparent immediately afterwards, and have proven helpful to all attendees.

Julie Blais Comeau is the real-deal when it comes to etiquette! Over 80 Telfer School of Management students attended the Professional Etiquette workshop and each one walked away with knowledge about introductions, business cards, name tag placement, and more! Julie’s presentation was targeted perfectly to her audience of business students. A great workshop; enjoyed by everyone! Thank you!

«I specifically found the topics of introductions (discussion of most important) and proposing toasts highly relevant and useful. The general introduction to dining was also quite informative.» «Very informative, positive energy!» «It was lots of fun and an excellent learning environment.»

I just wanted to let you know that we had two successful networking evenings this week, and I saw many students participating in excellent conversations, no doubt in part due to their preparation. I can assure you that we are very pleased with your presentation, and we received positive feedback from students indicating that they found real value in the session.
