Terry Brooks-Allen – Owner & Operator of Etiquette Basics
Terry’s interest in dining etiquette began in the late 1980s. While serving as Vice President of a National Student Organization, he found himself in a very awkward situation, having used the wrong bread plate at a formal breakfast. Although the other diner gave graciousness in pointing out his faux pas, that single moment sparked a self study of proper etiquette that Terry has continued to pursue and share with the community.
Known for his meticulous self-presentation, Terry brings order, creativity and sensitivity to the etiquette industry. From his extensive experience in the men’s apparel industry, where he presented and sold made-to-measure clothing for the Tom James Co. he knows how to dress people for success as many of his clients came from the top 10% of income earners for his demographic community. With a Bachelor of Science in Clothing & Textiles, Terry knows fabrics and fashion. Terry serves retained clients, dressing corporate executives, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, attorneys and physicians.
A veteran orator, Terry educates people how to integrate their unique professional personalities with socially acceptable behaviors. Terry’s speaking seminars help professionals to step out of defeating conduct and step into career enhancing choices to help individuals become ambassadors for their employers.
Having received his BS degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) in Greensboro, NC., Terry’s travels take him home to the tradition filled south for the holidays. Schedule your edu-taining training event with Terry from January to early November.
