Named one of the most innovative companies of 2017, The Plaza Finishing Program introduces participants to today’s proper business, dining and social etiquette.

This adult course mimics the royal training that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle undertook when joining the royal family upon their engagement to Princes William and Harry. It includes lessons in dining etiquette, social graces and style.
Each course will be taught by Myka Meier and her team, as well as guest experts. Myka is a dual American-British citizen who was trained in part by a former member of The Royal Household of Her Majesty the Queen and has attended multiple finishing schools in both England and Switzerland. While all courses are based on Western (American, British and European fundamentals) etiquette and taught in English, the programs were created to be exciting, interactive and modern to reflect today’s global society.
Beaumont Etiquette was founded in Kensington, London, just steps away from many historic British Royal Palaces and residences. Brought to New York by Founder Myka Meier, Beaumont Etiquette offers businesses and individuals, both kids and adults, inspiring courses in British, Continental European and American etiquette. With offices in both New York and California, Beaumont Etiquette’s trainers educate consumers and companies on the expansive world of dining, social graces and corporate protocol. Their contemporary approach of exciting and interactive programs was designed to meet the etiquette needs relevant in today’s society.
