About Us

Etiquette Empowerment, based in Charlottesville, Virginia, is passionate about empowering people, including business professionals, to reach their maximum personal and career potential. We offer corporate and business training and etiquette classes that cover dining, networking, self-presentation, and more. We're proud of our professional, unpretentious, and down-to-earth approach to etiquette and love helping individuals who are committed to self-improvement. Our founder, Patty Hughson, believes that refined etiquette is crucial to both personal and business-related accomplishment. Patty is a certified graduate of the American School of Protocol. Every day, she sees individuals who present themselves in a way that hinders their personal success and growth. Therefore, she decided to found Etiquette Empowerment to support and motivate people from all walks of life to achieve their goals.


With more than 35 years of experience in the Service and Retail industry, many business professionals have come to rely on her to meet their business goals. She has come to realize that first impressions are KEY to success.  Over the last decade with parents time constraints, technology coming to a fore front, etiquette has not been embraced.
