Jeannie has worked with my daughter who is graduating from Grade 12 this year. We can’t believe the confidence our daughter now has. Her ease with conversing and making small talk is really remarkable. She has quit second guessing herself on what to do when she is out in public and she actually looks forward to going out with my husband and I. We know she is so proud of herself. I highly recommend this coaching to anyone who wants the best for their teenage. Thank you Jeannie.

Jeannie has worked with our students and the improvement is always very impressive. I highly recommend Ms. Vaage to anyone wishing to develop skills that contribute to successful public speaking and presentations.

Ever since taking VIP Protocol's "Etiquette for Teens", other parents are always commenting on our teenagers' poise and politeness. We are so grateful to Jeannie for coaching them and giving them confidence in new situations. Her teaching was at exactly the perfect level for both children and her style was fun and approachable. Any parent looking to help their teens learn the art of conversation and adult interaction should definitely sign up for this coaching.

D.F. Boiler Tube Industries Inc. were treated to a very informative Office/ Business Bootcamp Etiquette session from VIP Protocol earlier this month. As the Baby Boomer Generation of which I am a part of fade into History, we welcome the next set of “Fresh Legs “ to carry on. In order to “Carry On “ I would highly recommend any Company with their sights set in the future to book a session with Jeannie and ensure all staff from warehouse to CEO attend , definitely something for all to be garnered. In this fast paced world there is no substitution for proper dress, manners & values. As out company grows, we  will certainly be looking to bring Jeannie back in the future.

Since Jeannie Vaage began working with our staff in 2016 here at The Groot DermaSurgery Centre, our patients and clients continually compliment us on the gracious, professional and welcoming atmosphere that our staff creates for them.  Jeannie’s attention to detail has helped our staff realize that everything they do and say has a direct effect on our patients' experiences at our centre.  Her relaxed, humorous, and interactive style left our staff always wanting more.  Thank you Jeannie for taking us all to the next level and we look forward to continuing to work with you.

A true professional understands that there is always more to learn and that “We don’t know what we don’t know.” Jeannie creates awareness around little changes that can make a big difference in how people view you both personally and professionally. We found her training to be fun, interactive, professional. Take your team to higher levels.

Ms Vaage’s presentation was both inspirational and energizing and that it provided the audience with tools and insights to help them effectively make small talk while participating in professional networking events as well as how to nail their next job interview with ease and confidence using the power of small talk. I highly recommend Jeannie Vaage from VIP Protocol as an expert in Canadian Business Etiquette and a facilitator who is able to electrify the audience with valuable input.

The Administrative Professional program at NorQuest College is pleased to endorse VIP Protocol. Ms. Vaage is a regular presenter in our classrooms. Our students always look forward to her interactive presentations on professional etiquette in the workplace. Ms. Vaage has done an excellent job creating specialized presentations for our students that introduces proper etiquette for those who will be entering the workplace for the first time, and also for those students who are seasoned but need to enhance their skills. She ensures all of the students participate and have a chance to practice skills such as introductions, handshakes and greetings. She inspires the students to improve and we always see an increase in professionalism after her visits. Her forthright approach to difficult etiquette topics make her an effective coach for students, staff, and leaders.

In today's social network society there are no taboos so it was refreshing to learn what professional looks like. Jeannie helped our medical staff to realize that even in the medical community we must always demonstrate excellent customer service.”

I was privileged to attend the VIP Protocol Dining Course. It was excellent –jam packed with great ideas to make you feel comfortable in any dining situation. Ms. Vaage’s relaxed and humorous presentation style made the evening fun for everyone. Her interactive teaching method made the lessons memorable. I highly recommend this course!

Jeannie made us feel confident and welcomed from the beginning because of her friendly and warm personality. It was an enjoyable learning experience where she provided us with the knowledge and confidece that will help us in any social environment.

We all had a fantastic time and I have received many compliments from all my staff in regards to Jeannie's relaxed teaching style, and what a positive experience the night was for them. I really appreciated the choices she made in terms of location, entree choices and how the evening was organized to create this experience. I really wanted to show my appreciation to the group and this night could not have been better.

What could have been a dry evening exceeded all of my expectations! Jeannie just kept delivering the goods, and the three hours flew by. With her background in teaching, she gets the points across and holds everyone's attention. The information was invaluable - and once you take one of her courses - you'll look at so many things differently! But what makes it such a great experience, is her very quick wit, analogies and the fact that she has such a great sense of humour.

Tanya Weir

What a wonderful job you did. We are all very pleased and learned so much. Thank you for making my birthday tea so special!
