         Deportment, Finishing, Personal Development & Etiquette (Manners for the 21st century).                   

What are deportment  classes and how can they change your life like Queen Mary did? This is the starting point!!!


Deportment classes and finishing schools are far from old-fashioned, placing too much emphasis on external appearances. Rather it’s about defining one's self-concept, or personal brand. Expanding your self-image and internal image, personal and professional development.


The principles are universal and will assist you to create more structure in your life to achieve the highest outcomes.


Deportment is about having elegance, grace, poise and high self-esteem. A confidence is emitted from having a good deportment, the way you stand, walk, sit, use stairs and enter a room. Realigning the body to appear more graceful can also help you appear youthful and vibrant.

Wardrobe and colours are more superficial, however worn properly can only enhance your personal brand and style. Learn how to define the key attributes you want your personal brand to convey e.g. confidence, authenticity, creativity, innovation, refinement, etc.

Classes are taught by Lady Serena, a former fashion model, parade compere and television commercial actor of royal descent.

Learn to shift your energy with photographic posing, on camera techniques, develop performance skills and public speaking abilities, learn to connect with your audience, grace, expression, style and movement, script memorisation, job interview techniques, sales/stage and public presentation, greeting and connecting with people, shaking hands properly, eye contact, building rapport, amongst other skills to improve your confidence and presence.

These skills require supreme confidence and can be learnt to condition yourself for the limelight.

Inner Makeover, learning Etiquette which is consideration of others.

A fun-filled and educational etiquette class focused on respect for others, sharing, table manners and polite conversation.

Lady Serena has worked with top executives, business owners, creatives, actors, television stars & presenters: including news & sports presenters. Plus, pageant & quest winners and runners-up for State, National and World titles.
