1- How did you move from being a banker, to an Etiquette consultant?
Actually I’m still very much hand on as a senior banker too, but being a perfectionist myself who likes to see things better led me to help out & share my Etiquette tips which are based on degrees obtained in the field in addition to experience in the work place with the public.
2- When did you find out that you have the passion for Etiquette and Fashion?
At a very early age & in fact I was supposed to be in the world of Diplomacy & not in the corporate world or banking in specific, but unfortunately the circumstances in the country of origin, Lebanon didn’t permit at the time of graduation from university.
3- What is your fashion style? Do you follow trends?
I do follow trends but definitely choose from it what suits my personality, life style, occasion etc… My style is classified as a classic elegant, yet that doesn’t mean that I don’t experiment & have fun in different styles & even be daring sometimes 🙂
4- What made you choose the topic for your guidebook ” travel etiquette”?
The same repeated annoying mistakes of passengers, whether at the airport, at the business lounges or on-board planes…
