Social Essence Butterfly!     Idaho School of Etiquette and Leadership

The Treasure Valley - All of Idaho


Susan Evans, founder of Social EssenceSusan Evans founded Social Essence – Idaho’s School of Etiquette, Leadership, and Image Development in 2003.  She is certified by The American School of Protocol ®, Etiquette Survival ®, is a member of the Association of Image Consultants International and is co-owner of the Doncaster Apparel Agency in Boise.
Ms. Evans also has an extensive marketing communications background in brand management with an emphasis on identity development. This area of concentration affectively develops the core “essence” of what a product, person or service is, and stands for. Her training for children, teens, and adults focuses on today’s etiquette, feeling comfortable with peers and adults, dining skills, communication skills, image development and confidence building self esteem programs.
“A person with strong social skills has a distinct advantage over others when it comes to obtaining a job or receiving a promotion,” says Evans.  “The person who manages to present themselves in the right light according to the situation quickly earns the respect of others.  This is the same person who most often ends up as the natural leader – the person that others look up to.” 
Ms. Evans has volunteered and supported numerous community associations including acting as Area Director for Zonta International, a global service organization working to advance the status of women and children. While Area Director, she coordinated and conducted meetings, briefings, luncheons and formal dining occasions where invited guests included political appointees and high ranking corporate business men and women.
  “It is rewarding to look back and realize that I have over thirty years of experience working with youth, parents, and business professionals,” says Evans. “The time has passed so quickly, yet the need for appropriate instruction on topics such as leadership and character for young people has continually increased. I look forward to sharing the finer points of dining, social skills, image development, and business etiquette throughout the Treasure Valley.”
