Manners Matter -

"Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.  If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter which fork you use"  Emily Post

Certified Etiquette Consultant Rita Finley Chalamidas, started her company, Manners Matter, because she feels manners really do matter. Her passion is to teach others how to manage their daily lives with confidence and grace.
Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, Rita has spent the past decade teaching Customer Service and Social Skills to adults.  As a trainer, consultant and certified professional coach, she has been witness to a generation lacking self-confidence and an understanding of how their behavior impacts others.  While much has changed, success still requires proper social skills. Accomplishment for Rita is arming others with the skills and tools they need to be most successful.  Let Manners Matter collaborate with you to help your child, teen or organization meet the future  - with Manners!
