If you answered yes, to any of the above, then this book is for you!
As a career-starting graduate, an award-winning scientist, or a globe-trotting CEO, you will learn:
|How to walk into that dreaded networking room|
|What to wear to an interview, a cocktail or on Casual Friday|
|How to eat at a five-course gala|

This book is a must read for anyone working with fellow humans. This book gives practical advice about simple ways to enhance your image and improve first impressions and more.
Claudine Thibaudeau, on Amazon
Julie's advice always comes from a place of kindness and preparedness, never from a place of pretentiousness. We have all seen a co-worker put their foot in their mouth, show up for work dressed inappropriately or feel unsure about how to handle a difficult boss. This book teaches you how to appropriately handle yourself at work, which is skill we all need to work on.
Julie's advice is funny, thoughtful and practical, she has provided me with a great "toolbox" of workplace etiquette.

Dear Ms. Comeau:
Thank you for this friendly reminder on proper etiquette! I enjoyed your writing style and the examples you gave are very understandable. As you may know, I am studying for a sommelier exam I am taking later this month. In addition to a detailed written and tasting portion, I will need to present a restaurant Service role play for twelve minutes. My etiquette and poise must be at their best if I am going to pass! I will definitely reread your book before taking my exam!

The information is presented clearly and is useful for making a good impression in any setting. I got the book for reference after attending the author's workshop at my university and I've found it useful as I made the transition from school to workplace. I think most people considering this already have good manners (if you care enough to seek this out), what you can expect to get out of this book is to know what's acceptable/expected of you in professional/social settings. It's likely some things in here will come to you naturally and other things you hadn't thought of before. Just remember when you don't follow good manners/etiquette in the workplace, people will judge you but won't correct you for it, so you might be projecting behaviours that aren't showing you to be professional you're aiming to be.

I attended a training workshop given by the author and had to read the book! Very good advice, I highly recommend the book.

Julie has finally written the one book everybody on this planet should read. Not only does it provide practical knowledge (which clears up every business etiquette question imaginable), but it is fun to read—Julie has a great sense of humor. If you go to a bookstore, you will find hundreds of etiquette books to choose from, I should know, I have bought nearly all of them at some point in my life, but this one book stands out among all the rest. Let's face it, the rules of etiquette don't change all that much over time. Good manners will always be in style, but in this day and age when technology has taken over the world—there are new rules for good behavior in the work place—and they are almost as important as technology itself. Thank you, Julie, for making everything so clear.

Julie writes about what she knows and she goes strait to the point.
A must read for anyone who do bussiness : proper manners, proper etiquette always talk for themselves.
Sylvie Mercier, on Amazon
This book is an excellent update on manners in today's environment. It should be taught in schools as well as boardrooms. While the focus of the book is the work world, I found a lot of it could apply to life in general. Civility and good manners should be a goal for everyday/everyone.

I first met Julie at Career Connections, a networking conference held for law students at the University of Ottawa. She gave a captivating presentation on etiquette that truly highlighted how an individual’s actions and words are directly connected to their career development. As a law student and a young professional, I began to realize that I needed to master my etiquette skills. Julie inspired me to read her book, Etiquette: Confidence & Credibility. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I especially liked learning about her personal story and how she became an independent etiquette expert. After reading Julie’s book, I am more confident and knowledgeable about how to make an excellent first impression, the value of networking, and the importance of strong communication skills. Etiquette: Confidence & Credibility is a perfect guide that will help young professionals polish their etiquette skills and thrive in their profession.
Etiquette:Confidence & Credibility engages the reader from the outset. It sets the context for etiquette and civility so well reflecting today's diverse and complex global landscape. Full of effective and relevant strategies for enhancing your confidence and credibility, easy to understand and put into practice immediately. A refreshing approach with humour and superb examples of how to create a difference in every day life personal and business settings.

What a fantastic piece of work, the little pictograms pull out quick references and important reminders. This wonderful pocket sized book fits in your purse and can be referenced anywhere, anytime, in any situation!!! I absolutely love it, so much so that I actually put an extra pair of nylons in my suitcase just in case I willed myself to get a dreadful run in my stockings. Put it out there and it will happen... Julie thank you so very much for your wonderful tricks and tips of the trade. Be at your best at the best of times...
Melanie Burston, on Amazon
This book is a must read!....irrespective of your profession. It is an excellent reference and a sound reminder of how to best present ourselves personally, professionally, and socially. The 'campus to corporation' etiquette advice is invaluable to all ages, so much so that I have purchased multiple copies for gifting purposes. Society can never have too much etiquette. Bravo to Julie Blais Comeau.
