Here is a snapshot of our training program:

Our time together during your two-day training session will focus solely on you and your new business.


Phase 1 of Your Training : Certification

 Our focus will be getting you certified and trained on teaching the Manners To Go curriculum. I will teach you everything you need to know about the materials and how to organize and lead a class.

We will have lunch at a beautiful downtown restaurant where I will show you what you need to know about dining etiquette and table manners in America as well as across the world.


Phase 2 of Your Training: Business Strategy

On Day two, you will receive valuable marketing advice and resources to help you launch and grow your business once you complete the training: 

  • Proposal templates for different organizations (country clubs, girl scout troops, schools, private clients)
  • Business contract templates
  • Marketing resources for your clients to use
  • Blueprint on how to developing a strong online presence; website and social media
  • After a quick energy boosting power lunch, you will have a second opportunity to observe me teaching a class.


You will leave our two-day immersion feeling inspired, energized and ready to start your new business.

Hello, I’m Lisa Richey, founder of Manners to Go™.

Hello, I’m Lisa Richey, founder of Manners To Go™. This brand has given me the honor of teaching manners to thousands of people across the globe – from Portland, Oregon to the Middle East.

The Manners To Go™ curriculum, which I’ve developed and refined over my 15-year career as a professional etiquette consultant, is taught in public, private and charter schools around the world. I have been featured in The New York Times, Parents Magazine and Fox News as an expert on etiquette and the many benefits of teaching social skills to children.


Now I would like to teach you everything I know – while introducing you to some of the best experiences an exciting city like New York City or Los Angeles (see city options above) has to offer.

How the 2-Day Enhanced Immersion Program Works
Step 1

Once you register and book your training dates, you will receive instant access to the complete Manners To Go™ resource library. You can download all of the teaching and student materials onto your own computer so you can start reading and learning right away. I encourage you to review the materials before you arrive for your training.

Step 2

During our two days together, you will be trained to deliver the Manners To Go™ curriculum to any audience. I will adapt the training to your specific needs and teach you how to customize the lessons according to the size of the group, their age level, the organization and meeting venue, and the time frame. We will also focus on marketing strategies you can use to grow your business effectively.

Step 3
Once you complete your two-day training, you will be officially certified and licensed to teach the program! You will be able to use the Manners To Go™ branding in your marketing materials and will receive a badge to put on your website stating that you are accredited by the American Academy of Etiquette and Manners To Go, an international brand, to teach manners to children.
Step 3
You have the rights to use all the Manners To Go™ materials and branding for 3 years without paying any fees or royalties and will have complete access to any new and/or updated teaching and marketing resources that are added to the resource library during this time. Once the three-year period is up, you will be required to pay $750 for refresher training if you would like to continue using the Manners to Go™ materials and branding.

Here’s your chance to own your business – while making a real difference in children’s lives


All children and young people deserve to feel confident as they move through life. Having the appropriate manners and social skills to behave well and create a positive impression in any situation plays a huge role in helping them develop that confidence.

It’s such a powerful, gratifying feeling to see children grasp what you’re teaching them and start to use it in their own lives to great effect.

To see the child who has always avoided an adult’s gaze look you in the eye and smile confidently… or the teenager who has never known how to behave when meeting new people suddenly spark up an engaging conversation with a stranger… or the toddler who always “acted up” in public start behaving much more politely and considerately in different social settings.

The glowing feedback they receive makes them light up. You can see their self-esteem grow with each positive interaction. They will carry that with them through their lives, and be so much more comfortable experiencing new situations and taking on new challenges. And more doors will open to them as a result.

This is the difference you can make as a certified Manners To Go™ consultant.

Our licensees are interesting women who have already accomplished a great deal. Many are in the midst of raising families and some have careers while starting their manners business. Some are teachers and we even have a retired banker. Another is a pediatrician. All of them are passionate about teaching manners to children.

Are you ready to take the leap?

Lisa is a consummate professional and has been an invaluable resource to me as I begin my new business. Not only is she warm and welcoming in person, she is also an expert in her field who makes the subject matter relatable and accessible to her clients.  Her training has provided me with a vast knowledge of etiquette and best practices for teaching it.   

As an international business operator, I have been impressed with Lisa’s curiosity and questions, which enabled her to advise me and apply her product in a new region for a new audience. Her knowledge of marketing enabled me to hit the ground running and hold my first classes within weeks of becoming certified.  Not only have I opened my own business but I have also gained a teammate who is committed to my success.

Lisa went above and beyond what she promised to deliver.  Her enthusiasm she shares for my business is very reassuring.  I have found a life long mentor.

Manners To Go delivers! I regret not getting started sooner. The investment is modest for the quantity and caliber of materials you receive, not to mention the personal coaching from Lisa. The curriculum is age appropriately structured and organized in an easy to study format that positions you to execute your lesson confidently prepared. If you have a passion for equipping young people in etiquette, Manners To Go, is the way to go!

“I was looking for charm school type material for my after school program for girls, and came upon the Manners To Go website. It was like finding a treasure trove of “what-to-do(s)” and “how-to-do(s)” on manners for children. It was more that I could have imagined finding. Lisa’s example of a weekend as a Manners To Go Consultant, on her website, was what helped me decide to become a certified and licensed consultant. It is, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made. In receiving my MTG training, Lisa provided every tool and resource needed to become a successful MTG Consultant…Lisa’s Manners To Go is a great product, and it is a joy working with her!”
Lindafaye, N.

Etiquette Consultant, 2015

Lisa, I am so happy I found you. I’ve wanted to teach kids etiquette for years, but never had the time to research all the material and then figure out how to teach it. With your Manners To Go program, I now have the perfect program to start my business. You delivered exactly what you promised: excellent support and a turnkey system. Thank you for making it easy and fun! It was truly an honor to be trained by someone of your caliber and experience, who was willing to share “everything you know, do, and use” with me. I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to teach children’s etiquette!”
