BIRMINGHAM, MI (January 28, 2017) Birmingham-based Bluestone Executive Communications announced today that certified etiquette instructor Danielle Kovachevich has joined the firm to enhance the offerings of the Bluestone Image Institute, a boutique program focused on helping professionals at all levels distinguish themselves with polish, poise and presence.
“As workplaces become more anonymous and increasingly casual, there is more opportunity than ever for polished professionals to stand out among peers and competitors,” said Bluestone Executive Communications president, Christina McKenna. “Danielle is expert at gracefully imparting the lessons of etiquette and other soft skills that distinguish leaders–and she does this with an infectious charm that instantly inspires everyone near her to up their game.”
Ms. Kovachevich will be offering private instruction as well as seminars on dining etiquette, international protocol, digital decorum and a new program developed for young professionals: “Manners for Millennials.” Her programs will be offered on their own and in conjunction with the other Bluestone Image Institute team members who focus on executive style and impactful communication. Bluestone’s core services include media training, speech and presentation coaching and crisis communication.
“It’s an honor to help professionals elevate their impact and enjoy their work more by fine tuning the details that bring dignity to daily work,” said Kovachevich. “Contrary to popular belief, office etiquette is not extinct, it has only evolved.”
Ms. Kovachevich earned a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education at Michigan State University and studied in the South of France while earning a Master’s Degree in Curriculum Development. Previously, she taught secondary education and wrote curriculum for various school districts.
She is certified in Etiquette Instruction by The Etiquette Institute of St. Louis. She will work with Bluestone clients at the firm’s Birmingham training facility or at client locations around the globe.
