Mr. Scott, as a parent I try teaching my children values every day. However, I can’t thank you enough for teaching my children (and other students) how to give back. Although, your class was free, you asked each student to bring five non-perishable products to each session that would be passed out to four selected churches. I cannot tell you how much of an imprint this gesture had on my children and me. Thank you so much for walking the walk - for as you say, “ELII teaches more than table manners” and that you did for my children. Ms. Harris - Parent

Mr. Scott, as an alumni, I can’t tell you how much fun I had working with you teaching St. Andrews Catholic School 8th Graders.  We were able to open the window of knowledge for each student well beyond what they expected. I learned so much, especially when you asked the student, what she saw in the mirror when she looks into it and her response was the word “Nothing.” As you began building her self-esteem she began to find her positive assets. At that moment, I personally felt just like this young girl (at my age of 10yrs). In addition, when we took the class to the Marriott Indianapolis Hotel for a fine dining experience, we witnessed a change; the Principal didn’t’ know they were her students. What an amazing change we saw. Well done! Shayla - 

Mr. Scott. Thank you so much for taking time to coach me over the past 15 weeks on manners, rules of etiquette, dress for success, building my self-esteem and confidence, along with how to make the right choices and a whole lot more. I truly am blessed to have you as my coach. I will take what you’ve taught me and apply it in every situation that comes before me.  Ericka – The Village

Client Testimonials

Our Eighth-grade students had a wonderful seven-week experience learning manners, rules of etiquette and formal dining etiquette. I didn’t know they were my students after the training. Mrs. McCormick, St. Andrews Catholic Elementary School 

Mr. Scott’s presentation was on point as he addressed table manners and rules of etiquette to over seventy young men during our annual Dining Etiquette Seminar.  John is a great role model for each of these young men. Mr. Jackson (HHC – Indianapolis)

Mr. Scott, you are awesome!  Your etiquette presentation was professional and worthwhile. Your skillful demonstration and knowledge was visible to each of our young women as they prepared for the Circle City Classic Pageant.  Coordinator .

My son and daughter had an unbelievable experience attending the Young Diplomats seminar. They both came away with knowledge I was unable to provide them on  introducing themselves (using the Eight Ingridents of an Introduction), dressing for success (picking up those dropping pants), and dining etiquette.  I would not hesitate in recommending The Etiquette and Leadership Institute of Indiana to family and friends. Ms. Thomas – Indianapolis, Parent

Thank you very much for the educational, engaging and energizing presentation presented to our Starfish Mentees. Your willingness to accommodate our last minute training requirement at a reasonable cost allowed these young men and women the opportunity to learn valuable social skills. You’re amazing. Bob – Starfish Initiative Mentoring Group – Indianapolis 

Mr. Scott, I want to thank you so much for helping me learn social skills.  It’s funny how I thought I knew how to eat right…only to learn I was eating wrong all along for a long time. I am so grateful to you for teaching me how to introducing myself, and dining using the American Style. KJ – student .

Dear Mr. Scott, I just wanna say thank you for coming and teaching us proper manners. I really enjoyed your class. You’re the best – Quianna W. College Park Elementary School student

I would strongly recommend The Etiquette and Leadership Institute of Indiana to other’s who are interested in having a male’s perspective on more than table manners. Ms. Stewart - Parent

Great presentation! Thank you very much for taking the time to enlighten our fraternity on the subject of Professional Dining Etiquette.  It’s extremely important for today’s college students to learn and apply the necessary social skills in a professional environment.  Looking forward to next year’s presentation  – DePauw University 

On behalf of the Eastern Star - Jewel Christian Academy 5th Graders, I would like to thank you for presenting to our students over the past five weeks. Your ability to interact with the students was extremely valuable to their learning manners, social skills, and dining etiquette. I can’t tell you how much of a difference you made for my students.   Thank you again for taking time and making a difference! 5th Grade Teacher. 

Thank you so much for providing a fun and entertaining etiquette class for my 6-year-old daughter.  She had a great deal of fun attending the Little Ambassador’s Etiquette Seminar. She couldn’t stop talking about how she can help me around the house, setting the table and practice saying those power words at home, and school. Your age-related content was so simple for her to comprehend  A happy and satisfied parent - Mr. Smith
