University Programs

From the Classroom to the Boardroom

From colleges in San Diego to universities in the Ivy League, give your students what they need most right now – Manners That Sell! We reveal the skills and polish each of your students needs to graduate from the classroom to the boardroom. From meeting and greeting to buttering bread and everything in between, we cover it all.

Our most popular presentation for college and university students “Dining for Success” includes a four-course “hands-on” dinner demonstration. During this program students will learn how to navigate place settings; manage the napkin, flatware and glassware; differentiate between the American and European styles of eating; handle difficult foods; and more – all while getting down to business!

In addition to “Dining for Success, we also offer 45-60 minute sessions for students to learn how to:

  • Make a Powerful First Impression 
    Get the job they want with strategies for creating a memorable and lasting presence with recruiters and hiring authorities.
  • Handle Greetings and Introductions
    Six simple rules that guarantee confidence.
  • Dress Right for Every Occasion
    Dress for the job they want, not the job they have.
  • Make the Most of Any Conversation
    Know what to say to feel comfortable and get important relationships off to the best start.
  • Follow Up After the Interview
    Make sure they’ve done everything it takes to get the job or guarantee referrals and other crucial contacts.

We can supplement these “must-have skills” with the following topics:

  • Office Tips for the New Hire
  • Manners for Meetings
  • Conducting Business around the Globe

Forget formal and stuffy. Good manners are all about people and relationships. We show your students how to master the details that will make them stand out from the crowd and the fierce competition. Delivered with easy style, humor and wit, these presentations are absolute winners. All of Lydia Ramsey’s programs are a must-have experience for those students grooming themselves for their careers – the world beyond the classroom.
