“I found the American Business Etiquette Trainers Association (ABETA) while online searching for training for the employees I manage. I liked the cutting-edge online education that Phyllis Davis offers and became intrigued with the idea of providing this training myself. I was delighted to discover that I could be certified as an American Business Etiquette Trainer and began receiving instruction immediately.
Phyllis arranged counsel by phone and in person. She exemplifies graciousness and generosity and prepared me in ways I had not anticipated, giving me the full benefit of her extensive experience. I came away with complete confidence that I can train others in a subject that provides value to customers, is highly marketable, and truly helps people to move forward in life. Phyllis provided not just excellent materials, not only outstanding grounding in the subject, but invaluable encouragement and inspiration.
Sometimes we know exactly where we are going and other times we stumble fortuitously into a good place. I am grateful that I happened upon Phyllis Davis and ABETA. I recommend both with enthusiasm!”

“It only takes few minutes with Phyllis to be attracted in the stream of her inspirational energy. It is effortless to recognize that Phyllis is dynamic, incredibly knowledgeable, articulate, straight forward, attentive, generous, professional, and charismatic, but there is something else, a secret ingredient perhaps? It is that indescribable “little something” that makes all the difference! Spend few moments with her and you will understand what I mean!
Being a professional business coach in the Middle-East, I have traveled across the planet to be trained by Phyllis and believe me, it was worth the trip.”

“Phyllis Davis shared her wit and wisdom with me during our time together. Her Business Etiquette Training gave me more than just a practical resource guide to navigate my way through complicated business and personal situations. Through her passion, intelligence and integrity, she exemplified that respect and civility in the workplace is not a luxury, it is a calculated business strategy that will increase employee and client loyalty and drive bottom line results. An enriched work environment is a happy byproduct.
As a Trainer in Leadership Development and Personal Effectiveness, I am honored to carry on her message to my clients in Canada. I believe that they will greatly benefit from this new and growing area of training. For companies that strive for excellence, becoming proficient in Business Etiquette will help elevate their staff’s professionalism to an even higher level.
Her caring nature, insight, perseverance, patience and practical knowledge made her not only a pleasure to work with, but also my wisest choice in training certification.”

“I can say so much about my training as a newly certified American Business Etiquette Trainer. One, I know that I have improved myself right from the start with what I learned.
Secondly, I am so happy to be able to learn how to gain rapport and respect. I have already employed the techniques and etiquette training I received from Phyllis which are INVALUABLE! It is a joy to see how having this training really comes to fruition right before your eyes!
And third, this training was a totally relaxed and enjoyable experience! Usually I am ready for high pressure high tension. I had such great conversations in philosophy with Phyllis and she really opened my mind.
I was blessed to have had the opportunity to have personal coaching from Phyllis and I believe that because she is such a great teacher, I was able to learn the material and training so much faster than expected.
I look forward to taking up the banner that Phyllis carries, and believe in the cause that she teaches.
There is a movement happening, and an army growing…you only need take your place in the ranks of the civilized.
I highly recommend taking Phyllis’ training. You will be extremely pleased with the results.”

“I have been an etiquette instructor for children for the past two years. I wanted to grow my business and focus on business etiquette. Even though I am certified in children’s etiquette by another outstanding organization, I did not feel that I had the proper credentials for business training. Well, that’s all changed now.
Phyllis Davis is nothing short of amazing and inspirational. I left Las Vegas with so much knowledge! Being able to learn from someone with her experience really is priceless. What was so striking to me, was not just her knowledge, but her genuine interest in my success and the specific advice that she has for her students.
I am delighted and honored to know Phyllis and am confident that because of her my business will be even more successful.”

“My training with Phyllis Davis was truly an incredible experience. Phyllis’s honesty and insight (combined with her fabulous wit) put me instantly at ease and created an excellent learning environment. Phyllis presents the class material in a participatory demonstrative manner, so you can see the objectives in action.
Phyllis is the real deal. She genuinely wants you to succeed, and she is so generous in sharing her wisdom and experience.
I feel absolutely confident that if you want a career in Business Etiquette, that ABETA training is the single most important tool to get you started.”
Penny Province, President, Corporate Etiquette Edge
“I want to thank Phyllis Davis for the opportunity to participate in her training program. I have taken many seminars and much business training from Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn and Mark Victor Hansen and some lesser known speakers. They all have been a great help to my personal and business growth. It was great to have all that prior training. Yet none compare to Phyllis Davis’ training. Her information was the cherry on the cake.
The experience she brought to the table offered me the training of a mentor. Her training didn’t just give me the information as the others did; she taught me how to use the information. The biggest part was the personal mentoring that I didn’t get from prior seminars or speakers. I loved the information on learning my particular behavior style that was holding me back from business growth.
I believe it is all her experience and her creative genius that makes me most definitely live up to Webster’s definition of mentor, a wise advisor.
I must report to you that I am looking forward to a new career that her training has lead me. I have been giving seminars in my field of advertising on “How To Write Advertising Copy That Sells.” I am so excited about the opportunities to speak on “Etiquette in American Business.” The thing that so excites me is the need for training and the money that is set aside for business etiquette that is so much greater than my field in advertising. What she gave me to build me business of etiquette training is much like receiving a turn key business. Very similar to buying a franchise for such a reasonable fee!!! And, I get to keep all the money from my efforts.”
