Speaker:  Janet Parnes, Conversation and Etiquette Consultant


Janet Parnes

Professionals depart from Janet Parnes’ workshops with tools to maximize the opportunities and navigate through the conundrums that come with doing business. These “soft skills”, or rules of conduct, can be powerful tools in generating likeability and trust - keys factors in building a business and advancing a career. Janet’s clients learn how to use these typically subtle tools to build relationships that are rewarding personally and professionally.

Janet believes instruction is most effective when fun comes into play. Also a professional storyteller, she, therefore, spices her workshops with tales of hapless missteps (including her own), intriguing historical trivia and breath-catching tales of real–life rudeness. She digs beneath the mechanics of manners with discussions on their underlying reasoning addressing the question, “What’s in this for me?” Toss in her infectious enthusiasm and you have workshops that sizzle!

Janet’s professional experience in sales and public relations encompasses companies such as Analog Devices, and Lipton Tea. Her belief that dreams are designed to be realized led her to enroll at the internationally recognized Protocol School of Washington®. She now leverages her talents and passion to offer clients techniques that are part of the foundation for success socially and professionally.

Janet’s has presented to organizations that include Chambers of Commerce, Association of Women in Science (AWIS), Bentley University’s Center for International Students ,Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, Inc. (engineering) UConn School of Law, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Page Realty, and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum.
