Good manners go hand-in-hand with leadership. Charm uses a progressive series of fun and interactive etiquette events to impart social skills, emotional IQ, and confidence that come from a solid foundation in the rules of etiquette. Guests who attain these soft skills are more considerate and successful in their lives. Studies at Harvard University, Stanford Institute and the Carnegie Foundation are proof positive – having found that 85% of future success depends on social skills.  At Charm, we are dedicated to ensuring the social success of youth and adults.
