For the first time ever, the NSS held special events in collaboration with The Emily Post Institute. The Emily Post brand is Synonymous with Manners and Etiquette as it relates to anything from Weddings and Event Planning to Gifting and Stationery - and everything in between.
Spanning five generations, this family business maintains and evolves the standards of etiquette that Emily Post established with her seminal book Etiquette in 1922.
MEET & GREET WITH LIZZIE POST
Lizzie Post met with attendees sharing her expertise about some of the etiquette dilemmas they face when planning events and working with customers and clients. Wine tastings were enjoyed by all during this special meet & greet only at The NSS.
Lizzie is the great-great-granddaughter of the iconic Emily Post, and co-President of The Emily Post Institute. She is also the author of Higher Etiquette, and co-author of Emily Post’s Etiquette 19th edition as well as Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette 6th edition, and The Etiquette Advantage in Business 3rd edition.
LIVE "Awesome Etiquette" PODCAST DIRECTLY ON THE SHOW FLOOR!
Lizzie and Daniel hosted a special stationery and gifting themed podcast discuss and answering questions on everything from correspondence and invitations to gifting and re-gifting and of course, thank-you notes.
Nothing short of entertaining - it was fun to laugh, groan and nod in agreement as the cousin duo keep the focus on guiding your actions with consideration, respect and honesty in mind (with just a dash of the traditions we all crave).
