About Knigge Coaching

As an international hotelier and butler I have experienced during my career nearly every interpersonal situation.   

Since 2011 I have worked in the capacity of coach for competence in appearance and business etiquette teaching all those that have attended my seminars the art of presenting themselves in an authentic and professional manner. Over the years I have, in an engaging manner, conducted hundreds of business etiquette seminars, lectures and one-on-one coaching’s and during this time trained thousands of attendees the art of business manners and etiquette from all the different types of industry.

In the area of business etiquette and competence in appearance I have become, in this field, the most authorized person in Switzerland to contact. Alongside my professionality my clients also value my winning personality and my international experience.
