On behalf of the University Club, we were thrilled and extremely pleased with the overwhelming Club Member response to Mrs. Parker’s Charm School, the customized course, and the reactions of the children following the course. Kimberly Parker was very easy to work with to plan this event for our Members, and she customized the course for our Member’s children to prepare for the holiday season of events and dinners. We plan on working with her during the 2014 University Club calendar year with additional etiquette classes for children and hopefully introducing the course to our Young Executives as well.

I highly recommend Ms. Kymberli Parker, owner of Mrs. Parker’s Charm School. Ms. Parker is quite knowledgeable about all things etiquette and is very personable. She worked with me to present a refresher class for our attorneys and everyone found her charming. She made the class fun and instilled greater confidence in our attorney professionals.

Mrs. Parker’s Charm School was a fantastic vehicle to give my eight year-old son the tools, finesse and confidence to conduct himself appropriately in a variety of social and dining situations. Quite frankly, Jack has become the manners expert at home. He has taken it upon himself to make sure the table is set correctly, table topics are appropriate and elbows OFF the table! Mrs. Parker is a dynamic educator who presents manners in a fun and clever way that engages kids of all ages.

My husband and I went into Extraordinary Desserts for coffee and dessert last night. We were greeted by Kymberli, who was very energetic and pleasant to talk with. She made our experience there delightful and met our every whim and desire; she was very attentive. She is also training the staff well, as we encountered another waitress emulating her serving ways.

“When I think of an etiquette session, be it a luncheon, a hands-on activity or a talk, I always think about hand-slapping incidents, or someone going on and on about the do’s and don’ts of being well, civilized. My experience with Kymberli Parker was anything but that. Kymberli’s charisma had our group on the edge of our seats; attentively listening to her as she walked us through our mannerisms, starting with the history of etiquette in France, all the way to remembering our breads and butters. I don’t think I could have found anyone else as charismatic as her for our group of engineers.”
