Dear Professional:

Thank you for visiting the At Ease Inc. Web Site.

As you know, we live in a very competitive society. When interacting with others, the first impression we give to them face-to-face, on the phone, or via correspondence can make or break those relationships.

No matter where you are in your career, our on-site programs and compatible training material will assist you in getting to that next rung on your career ladder. If you are responsible for assisting others in "enhancing their professional style" I am confident our training tools will assist you in meeting that need.

If you are grooming the "McManners" generation to learn the do's and don'ts of appropriate interaction, our DVDs, tip sheets, flashcards, and board game designed for university, high school and elementary school markets may serve your training interests and needs.

If you are responsible for planning your next quarterly meeting, annual conference or client meeting, one or more of our seven entertaining and informative corporate trainers may assist you in making that get-together a success!

If you would like to confirm that your actions are appropriate and perhaps pick up a tip or two, one or more of my eight books on domestic or international etiquette may be the book for you. They are available for you in bookstores both domestically and internationally.

After you visit our site, please know that my staff and I are only one e-mail message or telephone call away for you. We look forward to assisting you in gaining that "edge!"


Ann Marie Sabath, Founder/Author
