Grooming & Poise

We have all heard about the importance of first impressions in the business and services sector, and how difficult it is to change them later. In fact, research tells us it only takes the duration of an eye blink to size up another person in terms of attractiveness and trustworthiness. Personal hygiene and grooming, posture, dressing and dining etiquette all play a part in creating that first impression and in our social lives and at work. All these will be covered in the course and students will be able to plan a wardrobe, practise dining etiquette, and apply their knowledge in relevant case studies.
