What Our Students Are Saying

Sara May Wang

I have been in Sydney this year and studied at university. The Academy took very good care of me, I did the Taste debutante course first and later Savoir-Vivre.  It made difference to me settling into Australia and now I’m heading to London. I have real confidence in the next year thanks to Wayne, our butler, and the Academy.

Sara May WangThe Life of Savoir-Vivre
Sophie Zhang

Good course, everything for debutante.  Learned to be girl of refined manners and know how to be beautiful and dress and walk properly.  Learning to get out of a Bentley and make-up contouring were lots of fun.

Sophie ZhangTaste the Life of Savoir-Vivre
Ah Cy Vang

Very helpful course.  The art of hostessing was fun and lively and the training and practice offered by AE was second to none. I learned to be a sophisticated hostess and can now host any event, no matter how formal or informal.  I was worried about doing the wrong thing but now I look forward to every occasion.

Ah Cy VangThe Art of Entertaining
Fenfang Chung

Gave me the perfect introduction to the customs of different cultures but also the “new protocol” of what private and public institutions use to face today’s social and cultural challenges.

Fenfang ChungInternational Business Protocol & Diplomacy

Academy Epicurienne is an international protocol and diplomacy program and the world’s leading source on living a gracious, elegant and successful life. Our global expertise is reflected in our range of programs, designed to celebrate the charm, beauty and fascination of classic good manners, aristocratic dining skills and eternal style.

We’re inspired to bring the art of international savoir-vivre and protocol as a way to bridge cultural ties between East and West. Many of our students have graduate degrees, executive jobs or have lived overseas for years. As they emerge as leaders and executives in the private sector, services and state-owned enterprises or as successful entrepreneurs, we provide the skills and experience to give them a competitive edge in a global market.

Our courses help you to develop the important skills needed to achieve success in every aspect of your private and professional life, to triumph with confidence and take on the world with élan.

Our students emerge from our program completely transformed, with a subtle and exquisite sense of self, international savvy, as a charming and vivacious hostess, elegant and sophisticated women, with the skills to lead business and social circles.
