The Journey of Civility is so important, now more than ever it seems. A study conducted by Harvard University, Stanford and the Carnegie Research Institute show that a person's success in business today is attributed:
85% to Social skills...(what I will call polish)
15% to technical knowledge.
So how much polish are we learning on our way to being successful?
How are we equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the understanding of polish and civility? The Charleston School of Protocol is on a major mission to help people "Choose Civility" and The Proper Penguin book is an integral part to help children at a young age begin the journey.
If you would like Cindy Grosso to come and conduct a reading at your school, please know the reading, discussion, and singing of the B Polite song will take approximately 30-45 minutes. She will read the book, projected using a Powerpoint presentation for easy viewing, and conduct a live and lively discussion of the kind attitudes reflected in the book.
For schools within the local proximity, there is no charge to come and read, however there is a small minimum book order requirement, and the school agrees to promote the event. For schools out of the local area, again there is no charge to read, however there is a minimum book order. Please call and we can discuss your investment.

"I know that I am not the first, nor will I be the last to tell you that The Proper Penguin will be one of the best books on etiquette ever written for young people. You presented your message in a way that even our little 4 year olds understood."
"Cindy Grosso is the author of The Proper Penguin-The Story of B Polite. She visited our school last Friday and the students loved her!"
"Cindy, thank you very much for making the trip here and giving us great performances! I have heard so many positive comments. I asked one child at the end of the day what his favorite activity had been (and you were among some fine performers!) and without hesitation he said, "the author." I hope you enjoyed your day!"
