We were lucky this year to have Callista Gould, Certified Etiquette Instructor and Founder of the Culture and Manners Institute, join us for a workshop.

To change things up and make it interesting, we did a more interactive session this year where the group watched a TED Talk and divided up into groups to work through some activities.
Scott Stratten: UnMarketing
As a bonus activity this year, Improve You added a book club. The book was UnMarketing by Scott and Alison Stratten. At the end of the year, we were joined by Scott Stratten for an hour over lunch via Skype, where Scott was able to answer the group’s questions and talk a little more in depth about some topics.
