Etiquette is the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.
Much of today's formal etiquette originated in the French Royal Court during the 1600's. King Louis XIV did not appreciate people walking on his lawn and through his garden during his parties; therefore, he had signs or tickets posted everywhere to guide his guests as to where to walk and how to conduct themselves at his functions. These signs and tickets were the beginning of Etiquette. Etiquette is a French word meaning Ticket. One can think of Etiquette as their Ticket to success.

SAVVY School of Etiquette is the premier source for etiquette training in the Midwest, based in southeastern Wisconsin. We believe that etiquette includes and goes beyond knowing how to shake a person's hand appropriately or the ability to identify which silverware to use when dining. It also helps individuals build communication skills, strengthen social skills, and involves an attitude of respect and concern toward others to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and valued. SAVVY offers group and individual training for children, teens, and adults. We are a partner with Racine Unified School District and Washington Middle School in the Kenosha Unified School District. Let us equip your children to stand out because they are polite, have impeccable character and strive to lead lives of excellence. Our mission is to educate, motivate, inspire, and empower individuals to pursue their personal best, look and feel confident, and make a favorable and lasting impression. ( SAVVY School of Etiquette is a division of SAVVY School of Character and Personal Development.)
