Meet Courtney

Courtney is the Founder of CF Etiquette, a Kansas City-based professional etiquette service specializing in etiquette for all ages, from business professionals to children.

Courtney holds two etiquette licenses from the prestigious The Emily Post Institute in Business Etiquette and Children’s Etiquette.  She is the only etiquette instructor in the Kansas-City area who is trained by The Emily Post Institute, which to this day remains the leading standard and thought-leader in the field of etiquette.

Courtney has a wide course offering and regularly teaches etiquette classes for corporations, universities, Executive MBA and MBA classes, not-for-profit organizations, schools, Girl Scout/Boy Scout troops, private individuals, and many other various entities. When it comes to business, Courtney demonstrates that etiquette is the differentiator that often helps people get hired or promoted.

The goal of any etiquette session for Courtney is never about learning “rules” but rather about instilling a legacy of valuable life skills or tools and principles based upon consideration, respect and honesty.

“Good manners are a valuable asset that cost nothing to acquire.” – Emily Post
