Presidential Manners? How Low Can Donald and Hillary Go?
Has the US election lowered the bar on civility?
As a polite Canadian and business etiquette expert, the American election has been both fascinating and disturbing. It makes our Canadian elections seem pretty tame, in a good way. Leaders in Canada debate the issues and rarely let personal differences or personality sidetrack them.
Debates or tantrums
What do you give someone who has everything?
How about a donation to people who don’t have anything?
Terry and I want to give you a Christmas gift (besides our handy dress for success, networking and business etiquette expert advice).
Giving a donation to a worthy charity seems a good gift idea.
That’s what we’re doing this year. In our family we all make donations and only exchange little stocking stuffers, an idea which we’ve carried over into our business & corporate gift giving. We encourage you to do the same.

Lest We Forget
During the 2 minutes of silence today on Remembrance Day, I thought about my grandfather who served in the Royal Naval Air Service during the First World War (see photo of my grandfather – standing left on his armored car in WW1) and about my father who served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. I also gave thanks for all our armed forces personnel and people who step up to the plate to protect us and others around the globe.
